A volleyball: Bayshore Christian falls to defending state champ

SOUTH DAYTONA — Bayshore Christian's fans' shirts read "Expect A Miracle." But with the homecoming dance and a third straight trip to the state final four looming, defending state champ Warner allowed no miracles, dismissing Bayshore 25-15, 25-18, 25-22 Saturday.

"I've never been this nervous before a game,'' said Warner's Amber Wyborny. "It had nothing to do with them beating us two years ago. It was just about getting back to state.'

Kasi Morgan and Alicia Lewis had four kills each in the opening game, while Bayshore's (16-12) only offense in the opener came out of Gabby Fernandez (three kills). In Game 2, Jennifer Beatty unleashed five kills and Wyborny had three as the Eagles (26-3) were never threatened after pulling out to an 18-15 lead. Fernandez got going for Bayshore in the final game with six kills (11 on the day) and Bayshore led until Warner battled back from 17-12 down and drew the game even at 22-all.
