5A volleyball: Sickles can't get much going in sweep

Class 5A Sickles can't get much going in sweep

VENICE — Rob Brashear remembers taking his Sickles team to Venice during his first year of coaching in 2000. The Gryphons returned to Tampa on the wrong end of a lopsided score.

Not much has changed during the past nine years.

The Indians made quick work of the District 9 runnerup, defeating Sickles 25-8, 25-9, 25-10 in 50 minutes in the Class 5A region quarterfinals Tuesday night.

The Indians scored the first eight points of the night.

"I knew they were going to be a tough team," Brashear said. "I knew they were going to be a good ball-control team. They were the last time we were down here."

Sickles got nine kills from senior outside hitter Lauren Ramsey.

The Gryphons (20-6), making their sixth straight playoff appearance, led once the entire match, 1-0 in Game 3.
