A volleyball: Bayshore dispatches Cambridge

TAMPA — Cambridge gave Bayshore Christian all it could handle for the first game and a half before the defending state champion Faith Warriors seized control for the 25-18, 25-14, 25-8 sweep Tuesday.

In the rematch of the district championship, the Lancers jumped on Bayshore (18-11) early in Game 1 with leads of 8-1 and 12-4. The Faith Warriors went on consecutive point streaks of six and eight to rally for the Game 1 win.

Game 2 went back and forth and Bayshore had a 17-13 advantage before scoring eight of the game's last nine points.

Cambridge (18-9) began to run out of steam and was unable to really threaten in Game 3.

"Every time we play Cambridge it's a big rivalry and an intense game," Bayshore coach Melanie Humenansky said. "They wanted it so we just had to relax and play our game."

Bayshore sophomore Gabby Fernandez had a game-high 18 kills and a team-high seven digs. Teammate Sami Stokes added 11 kills and six digs, and Amanda Mirabella had 32 assists.

Katelyn Wolcott had a game-high 10 digs for the Lancers.

"As the defending state champions we have everything to lose so you put it all out there and you play the best that you can," Humenansky said.
