Behind another stellar serving performance, and 21 assists from senior setter Maccy Hall, top-seeded Canterbury (17-8) took the Class 1A-District 9 volleyball title 25-21, 25-17, 25-13 against surprising runner-up Lakeside Christian at the Academy at the Lakes gymnasium.

The Crusaders, who finished district play unbeaten this season, out-aced the Lions (10-11) 22-3, including a team-high nine from sophomore Sarah Fleming. Freshman Mansie Hough had eight aces to go with a team-high nine kills.

"We're a really good serving team. Some people don't believe our stats that are put in the paper, but you saw it tonight," Crusaders coach John Milkovich said.

Canterbury got out to large leads in the first two sets of the all-Pinellas County final, only to have Lakeside Christian rally on the strength of good defense and a strong block. Sophomore Danielle Mostert had four solo blocks on the night.
