Here's another glance at some of the fall high-school sports teams' various results, with some enjoying solid marks near the halfway point in their seasons.
Certainly two of these are the Orange City University bowling teams, where both the boys and girls are sporting 8-0 records. This is on the heels of both besting their DeLand counterparts by 7-0 scores.
Looking at volleyball action, the DeLand Lady Bulldogs bested Atlantic, 25-7, 25-22, 25-18, with Madison Rogers showing the way with 12 kills, a like number of digs, and two aces. Taylor Thigpen was credited with 17 assists, and five aces.
The Orange City University Lady Titans (9-2) volleyed to 25-11, 25-22, 25-16 game wins over New Smyrna Beach. Allie Geary nailed 10 kills and four blocks, while Jenna Talbert had five aces.
The Pine Ridge Lady Panthers defeated the Daytona Beach Seabreeze SandCrabs 25-20, 26-24, 25-19.
The DeLand Bulldog swimmers splashed past the Atlantic Hawks, 81-12, and the Flagler Palm Coast Bulldogs, 61-33, while the Lady Bulldogs dunked Atlantic, 81-7, but bowed to FPC, 51-43.
A couple of results from Deltona Trinity Christian contests found the Lady Eagles with a 25-6, 25-7, 27-17 volleyball win over Calvary Christian, while the Eagle golfers topped the Crescent Raiders, 182-221.
Here are the state high-school-football polls going into last weekend: Class 8A - 1. Dr. Phillips. 3. Fletcher. 13. Sandalwood. Class 7A - 1. Manatee. Class 6A - 1. Gainesville. 11. New Smyrna Beach. 12. Mainland. Class 5A - 1. Palmetto. Class 4A - 1. South Sumter. Class 3A - 1. Delray American Heritage. Class 2A - 1. Glades Day. 5. Warner Christian. Class 1A - 1. Trenton.
Certainly one of the big headliners last week was that DeLand Lady Bulldog golf standout Carianne Wright carded a 1-under-par at Hidden Lakes Golf Club in New Smyrna Beach to defend her Volusia/Flagler high-school girls' championship. Spruce Creek won the team title, with the Orange City University Lady Titans third and DeLand fourth.
Looking at cross-country, the New Smyrna Beach boys were first, with University third, Pine Ridge fifth, and Taylor sixth. For the girls, Seabreeze led the way, with University third, Taylor fifth, and Pine Ridge sixth, with seven teams in each race.
In volleyball, again it was the University girls pushing their record to 10-2, besting Atlantic, 25-5, 25-12, and 25-4.
