Antilles Girls Take Volleyball Title

Oct. 27, 2008 — Antilles School's girls' volleyball team continued to dominate over the weekend, taking home the 2008 Ocean Spray Volleyball title after beating an old foe three sets to one at the Mark C. Marin Center on St. Thomas.
The Hurricanes jumped out to an early 7-0 lead in the first set. But as the home crowd started to get behind their team, the All Saints Vikings responded with seven straight points of their own, letting their rivals know that it wasn't going to be an easy match. Both squads went back and forth, but Vikings errors allowed the Canes to take the first set 25-20.
All Saints countered in the second set, taking it 25-21, but the Canes proved to be too much for them, taking the next two straight sets 25-22 and 25-16.
Ziray David from the Antilles A team picked up the tournament's best setter award. The Hurricanes' Victoria Hamilton was also named the girls' tournament MVP.
Country Day School finished third after beating Charlotte Amalie three sets to one.
On the boys' side, Charlotte Amalie High School took on the Caribs from St. Croix's Central High School in a very intense matchup. Both teams showcased their athleticism throughout the match, with several thunderous spikes and players diving all over the court. But it was the Chickenhawks that prevailed in three straight sets, all with a final score of 25-22.
CAHS' DeJani Dowell picked up the tournament's best setter award, while teammate Mikhail George was named the boys' tournament MVP.
Coming in third place for the boys was the Antilles A team, which beat Country Day School three sets to none.
