Carver A&T coach Ralph Olson started the year with a simple goal for his volleyball team. He wanted seven wins. He had to revise his goals upward twice during the year, but it was the 14th win that eluded the Wildcats. That would have been a state championship. The Wildcats (13-6) battled hard, but came up short of Olson's latest goal, bowing to Allegany County's Fort Hill 25-12, 25-23, 25-12 in the Class 1A state volleyball championship game at the University of Maryland's Ritchie Coliseum.

Meet South River's Melissa Diehlmann: volleyball coach and team psychologist."It was really hard for me to get those girls to realize how good they were and to play up to their potential," she said.

But they'd get into these little shells at times, thinking they weren't as good."My biggest challenge was being able to pull out from within them the ability they had."Diehlmann, 24, The Baltimore Sun's Anne Arundel County Volleyball Coach of the Year, was up to the challenge.

Emily Wolfing thoroughly enjoys her role as the No. 1 option for the big-hitting Washington and Lee volleyball team, and she's not afraid to talk about it. "I'm so lucky to have this opportunity for such a talented team," said the 5-foot-10 junior from South Carroll High. "I became an outside hitter last season after being a middle hitter my freshman year, and I'm used to the pressure that comes with the position." There is also pressure in being a member of the team to beat in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference.

Christina Grempler understands why the surging Towson volleyball team is so successful. But the 6-foot-4 freshman middle blocker is having way too much fun winning matches to stop and soak it all in. The Tigers (11-4) have already upset defending Colonial Athletic Association champion George Mason on their way to seven straight match victories, and Grempler doesn't want to over-analyze the situation. "We're just out there playing and meshing well," said the player who has drawn rave reviews around the CAA and has twice been named the conference's rookie of the week.

These siblings are a study in similarities, not contrasts. They have the same physical gifts; cast the same commanding presence on both the basketball and volleyball court; and there's that smile that each will release in a moment's notice. There is one thing that separates John Carroll two-sport standouts Corey and Kayani Turner: 13 months of age. That explains a lot. "Corey has been very influential on Kayani," said their father, Michael Turner. "When she first started basketball, it was because Corey was playing.

As the high school volleyball season begins in the Baltimore area, local teams find themselves dealing with an unusual theme -- parity. In previous years, a few squads in the area were always better than the others. Things are different this season, however, with more girls playing club volleyball in the offseason. The talent level has risen dramatically, causing some traditional powers to take a step back and other schools to emerge. In Howard County, perennial contender Centennial -- winner of 14 state championships -- is still one of the best teams, but River Hill, the Class 3A runner-up last year, lost a lot of players.

Lauren Bosse cringes when she hears herself described as the Towson High volleyball team's "heart. " "Everybody is working really hard," the 5-foot-11 senior middle hitter said. "To be called the heart wouldn't be fair. Without the rest of my team, I'd be nothing. " But it isn't saying too much to mention that she's a key element to the success of the defending Class 3A state champions, who play in the state semifinals Thursday at 8 against North Hagerstown at the University of Maryland's Ritchie Coliseum.

The beginning of the season is a great time to answer some questions about your team. One of questions for the top-ranked River Hill volleyball team was whether it could pick up where it left off last year. The answer seems to be a resounding yes. The Hawks -- the Class 3A state runners-up last season -- used a balanced attack, led by senior Sarah Okey and junior Melody Nazari, and superior passing to defeat No. 3 Mount de Sales, 20-25, 25-21, 25-17, 25-21, in the opener for both teams.

Towson hired Bruce Atkinson to become the 10th volleyball coach in the program's 32-year history, athletic director Mike Hermann announced. Atkinson was the coach at the University of Hawaii at Hilo for the past three seasons, leading the Vulcans to a 69-14 overall record. He was named PacWest Coach of the Year in 2007, when the Vulcans finished 23-5, and in 2009, when the team went 25-2 and made its first postseason appearance in more than a decade.

Choy is 32."They're freshmen, though," Blackburn said.A little explanation probably is necessary.Choy came to Bowie after nine years in the Air Force. She is working to combine credits from about 10 other universities into a degree.
