Take a look at what’s happening in Volleyball…

 

PREP SPORTS REPORT HomeTeam 25: Volleyball rankings, Week 6 Kelly Parsons and Rodney Page 1. Carrollwood Day (17-2) Scoop: The Patriots take a 10-day break for service missions, and that’s why they front loaded 19 matches in their schedule. When they return, a district match at Seffner Christian on Oct. 6 awaits. 2. Berkeley Prep (7-3) This week: Tuesday at Holy Names, Thursday-Saturday at Asics Challenge (Chicago) Scoop: The Bucs have always been big on tough schedules, and that continues to be true with a weekend tournament in Chicago where coach John Coup says they’ll face some of the best competition in the nation. That kind of experience will certainly come in handy with district tournaments nearing. 3. Palm Harbor University (11-2) This week: Tuesday at Countryside, Wednesday vs. Northeast/Countryside (PCAC second round), Thursday vs. St. Petersburg Scoop: The Hurricanes bounced back from two losses in the Berkeley tournament by easily defeating Pinellas Park and Clearwater Central Catholic. PHU is clearly the team to beat in the PCAC and in Class 7A-10, and it will be tested this week, especially on Thursday against the Green Devils. 4. Mitchell (16-1) This week: Tuesday at Land O’Lakes, Wednesday vs. Wesley Chapel, Thursday vs. East Lake Scoop: Since losing to East Lake earlier this month, the Mustangs have won six straight. Another match against the Eagles looms on Thursday. They will certainly need sophomore outside hitter Jessie Mooney (131 kills) and senior hitter Kayla Widera (29 blocks, 88 kills) to be at the top of their games. 5. Wharton (11-1) This week: Tuesday vs. Sickles, Thursday vs. Steinbrenner Scoop: Freedom took a set from Wharton, just the fifth the Wildcats have dropped all season, but Wharton prevailed to keep its near-perfect record in tact. Next up: four straight district matches, which could put the Wildcats in the driver’s seat heading into the district tournament. 6. Robinson (11-3) This week: Thursday at Jefferson Scoop: Robinson’s only losses came in the Berkeley Premier, but the Knights rebounded last week with a 3-0 win against Middleton. Outside hitter Catia Sleet leads the way with 200 kills, more than double the next-best Knight’s total. 7. Plant (12-3) This week: Monday vs. Wiregrass Ranch, Thursday at Sickles Scoop: Plant continued to rebound in district play Monday night with a 3-0 win against the Bulls. Kaylie Butts and Ansley Gould continue to be a good one-two punch for the Panthers, who will play three straight district matches until finishing the regular season against Robinson and in the Knights’ round-robin Dig Pink tournament. 8. Tampa Bay HEAT (16-3) This week: Tuesday at Lakeside Christian, Thursday at Academy at the...
