Pancake's streak at 58 Gators bow


Roll and dump. Dink and dump. With both sides lacking experienced setters, eighth-ranked Glen Burnie and 11th-ranked Perry Hall played finesse volleyball yesterday, with the host Gophers winning, 15-6, 5-15, 15-10, 15-5, in grind-it-out fashion.

Serving and some well-placed rolls and dumps by Amy Hutson were the highlights for Glen Burnie (4-1) while Perry Hall (2-4) made a lot of unforced errors.

Perry Hall's Beth Pancake, however, ran her perfect serve streak to 58 out of 58, with 12 in a row yesterday.

"This is the year we'll have to take our lumps," said Perry Hall coach Pam Wilt. "I know the girls might not want to hear that, but it appears to be true, right now."
