Skipjacks show potential in opening loss
CCBC-Catonsville tops Chesapeake’s women’s volleyball team in four games

WYE MILLS – Jay Covey saw a lot of potential in Chesapeake College’s season-opening women’s volleyball loss to Community College of Baltimore County-Catonsville Thursday night.

"I thought we could be competitive by midseason, but now I think it may be sooner than that," said Covey after Catonsville’s 25-16, 20-25, 25-11 and 25-11 victory. "All in all, we served well and they were aggressive. They were nervous tonight and that showed. I think once they start believing in themselves we’ll be competitive."

While Catonsville handled the Skipjacks in the three games won by the visitors, Chesapeake’s potential was on display in Game 2. The Skipjacks ran their offense crisply through freshman setter Sarah Porter, who regularly fed sophomore hitter O’Sha Adams for a series of kills. Adams, Lexi Holder and Brooke Coppage scored key points from the service line to help fend off the Cardinals in Game 2 and even the match.

Catonsville (2-5 overall, 1-1 league) controlled the final two games, using a 15-3 run to win Game 3 and opening the final game with a 10-1 spurt.

Chesapeake plays Friday and Saturday in the College of Southern Maryland Tournament, then hosts Delaware Tech-Terry Campus Monday at 6 p.m.
