Class A volleyball: Lakeside no match for Bayshore

Class A: Lakeside Christian ousted

TAMPA — Bayshore Christian coach Melanie Humenansky had reason to celebrate Wednesday night as her squad opened region quarterfinal play.

And it wasn't just because Bayshore cruised to an easy victory. Celebrating her 14th wedding anniversary, Humenansky watched as the Faith Warriors dominated Lakeside Christian 25-10, 25-15, 25-11.

Despite capturing a fifth straight win, Humenansky wasn't overjoyed with her team's play.

"It wasn't our best game," said Humenansky, who has guided the Faith Warriors (17-11) to state championships in four of her 14 seasons. "We're always happy with a win but the tempo just wasn't where we like it."

That had a lot to do with the opponent.

Lakeside Christian (10-12) struggled to return several Bayshore serves and gave up most of its points on hitting errors. Anytime the Lions managed some offensive scoring, the Faith Warriors quickly squashed any attempt at a rally.

Standout sophomore outside hitter Gabby Fernandez led the Faith Warriors with 13 kills.

    UPDATE, 4:27: In making the deal, the Rays add an elite-level defender to an infield that could use the help.
