No. 14 Here­ford tops No. 12 Tow­son in vol­ley­ball

Baltimore Sun - - VARSITY - By Tom Worgo

Here­ford’s vol­ley­ball team isn’t ac­cus­tomed to be­ing an un­der­dog, and they didn’t play like one ei­ther.

No. 14 Here­ford de­feated No. 12 Tow­son, 21-25, 25-16, 25-20, 25-23, in Park­ton.

Tow­son reached the Class 3A state semi­fi­nals last sea­son.

“It gives us an in­di­ca­tion of where we are right now,” said Here­ford coach Dave Schreiner, whose team lost in the Class 2A state semi­fi­nals the past three years. “Our pass­ing has to be good and I thought it was as good as it has been tonight. I think we have a lot more weapons and of­fense than we had last year.”

Schreiner was par­tic­u­lar­ity im­pressed with the per­for­mance of ju­nior out­side hit­ter Mag­gie May, who fin­ished with 12 kills while go­ing 15-for-16 from the line.

“She re­ally has come on,” Schreiner said. “At the be­gin­ning of the sea­son, we kind of looked at her as maybe set­ting be­cause she set pretty much set all this past club sea­son. I thought about her play­ing in the mid­dle, but she is one of our top out­side hit­ters.”

Here­ford also re­ceived solid per­for­mances from se­nior out­side hit­ter Erin Collins (eight kills) and ju­nior set­ter Erica Hilse (15-for-16 serv­ing).

Ju­nior out­side hit­ter Sara Man­dreja had 14 kills for Tow­son and team­mate Lo­gan Tow­son’s Michaila Sheedy di­rects her shot away from the block at­tempt by Here­ford’s Mag­gie May, who fin­ished with 12 kills while go­ing 15-for-16 from the line. Marsh, a ju­nior set­ter, had 28 as­sists. Se­nior out­side hit­ter Ni­cole Race chipped in six kills and five aces.

NO. 9 SEVERNA PARK 3, ST. MARY’SRYKEN, 1: The host Fal­cons (1-0) over­came a slow start and beat the Knights (0-1).

Severna Park won, 23-25, 25-20, 25-13, 25-23. An­gela Cot­trell had 10 kills and Ally Win­ship had six for the Fal­cons.
