Prep roundup: Hebron sweeps past Calvary Day

DACULA - Hebron Christian had no problems reaching the Class AA/A elite eight, rolling past visiting Calvary Day in three games Tuesday - 25-7, 25-17, 25-11.

Courtney Bishop went home sick in the afternoon, but returned just in time for the match, finishing with four kills and five aces. Elise Murray had six blocks and 10 kills, Becky Conner had four kills and a block and Mollie Russell had three blocks and four aces.

Maddi Roof (eight assists) and Savannah Blalock (five assists) led the passing for Hebron (27-15), which plays again Saturday at Wesleyan.

"The girls have peaked at the right time, they're playing very well," Hebron coach Judy Conner said. "I liked our scrappiness today, getting all the loose balls up and not letting anything hit the floor. We only missed three serves, so our serving was much improved."


Stars fall to St. Vincent's 3-1

SAVANNAH - Providence Christian won a game, but not the match and was ousted from the Class AA/A state playoffs by St. Vincent's Academy in Tuesday's second round.

The Stars staved off elimination by winning the third game before falling 25-11, 25-11, 21-25, 25-13.

Caroline Adams led Providence (30-14) with 21 kills and five blocks. Melanie Blackburn had 26 assists, Kaitlin Harper had five blocks and Madison Jones had 12 serves for the Stars.
