MAV First Rites of Summer
Three Howard County volleyball players — Jamie Carey (Howard), Elyse Smith (Mt. Hebron) and Lindsey Scepura (Mt. Hebron) — teamed up to win the MAV First Rites of Summer 18-U Junior Triples beach volleyball tournament at Rehoboth Beach, Del. on May 12.
After a slow start in the first pool play game and tying the PA Avalanche in the second pool play game, the Maryland Chill 14-U Purple bats got hot in elimination play last week.
The team posted extra-base hits by Hannah Goodman, Emma Durkin and Bethanne Venkatesan and a tight overall defense, including two double plays. The team plowed through three more games on Saturday, scoring 25 runs against their opponents while allowing only eight.
The infield and outfield played exceptional defense.
The girls almost played the clock around at the field, arriving at 7:45 a.m. and leaving just after 7 p.m. While they were admittedly tired at the end of the day, they were also excited to finish first in the Crab Claw Classic after a rough season start. It ended for a great Mother's Day surprise.
