2A volleyball: Indian Rocks conquers quarterfinals

Class 2A Golden Eagles move on for fifth straight year

LAKELAND — Lakeland Christian fell to Indian Rocks Christian for the second year in a row, 25-10, 25-14, 25-12 Tuesday night.

The Golden Eagles (17-11) advance to the region semifinals for the fifth straight year. They'll face the winner of tonight's match between Tampa Prep and Lakeland Santa Fe Catholic.

Lakeland Christian (11-9), which has just one senior, had several unforced errors and errant serves that led to its downfall.

"Our age showed tonight," Vikings coach Allie Henderson said. "The level of play was brought up a couple of notches."

The Golden Eagles used the serving of Kahley Dohme and Rachael Jones to build big leads in each game, and LCS could never string points together. Emiline Lazzeri led the Golden Eagles with seven kills and 10 digs while Jones chipped in with 20 assists.

"We needed this one," Golden Eagles coach Mark Foster said. "We moved our defense around tonight."

    TALLAHASSEE — For the first few minutes Saturday, Florida State's James Blackman looked like a true freshman making his first start at quarterback for a big-time program.

  3. No. 12 FSU, defense struggle in 27-21 loss to N.C. State


    TALLAHASSEE — It's easy to blame No. 12 Florida State's 27-21 loss to North Carolina State on the injury to starting quarterback Deondre Francois or the three-week layoff because of Hurricane Irma.

    It would also be wrong.
