Bel Air wins UCBAC title
The Bel Air girls volleyball team won its first ever Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference championship Thursday night at Patterson Mill High School.
The Bobcats won the first two games, 25-14 and 25-21, but the Hawks won game three, 25-19, to stay alive. Bel Air closed out the match in game four, 25-14.
"Very pleased," Bel Air coach Tim Markland said after the match. "We served well, they had a tough time with our serve. When the ball was on our side of the net, I think our passing, to lead to set to kill, was spot on."
Bel Air hitter Celeste Roland was spot on for most of the night, finishing with 13 kills, three aces and 14 digs.
"I think our team prepared well every day, we tried so hard," Roland said.
Teammate Kendall Daley, who had seven aces, served the Bobcats to a 8-4 first set lead. Rien Hachmann (six aces) served the lead to 13-6 and one of Roland's kills pushed the lead to 18-8, leading to Daley serving the final two points.
