Special to the Miami Herald

Just three days after delivering a baby girl, Sheridan Hills Christian volleyball coach Debbie Rantin felt well enough to make the trip upstate to direct her team in Friday morning’s Class 2A state semifinals.

Her presence, though, wasn’t enough to spark the Sharks into their first title game.

Sheridan Hills saw its season end a day early for the third consecutive year, unable to withstand Foundation Academy’s stable of power hitters to fall in straight sets, 25-14, 25-18, 25-6.

“We’re disappointed that we didn’t get any farther,” Rantin said, “but [the Lions] have a good program. I’m not going to knock them for that. They have a wide range of hitting capability. I’m never going to be upset about losing to a good team.”

BreAnna Holder and Brooke DeGraide pounded 10 kills apiece as Foundation prevailed again in a rematch from last year’s 2A semifinals.

Three other Lions had at least six kills, taking advantage of Sheridan Hills’ blocking shortcomings to blast away from all angles.

“That was the biggest thing, the blocks,” Sharks setter Amber Stout said. “They just weren’t fast enough to get [into position].”

The Lions (24-2) poured it on at the end, winning nine consecutive points at one stage of the final game even as coach Danny Elelutiza worked to clear his bench. Foundation will play for the championship Saturday against Seacrest Country Day from Naples.

“Something we’ve talked about throughout the year is that every game should be a masterpiece. Go out and create a masterpiece,” Elelutiza said. “Our goal this year is to make a statement — that Foundation Academy is here to stay.”

The Lions have lost just 15 matches over the past four seasons, falling to Lake Worth Christian in last year’s 2A final after dispatching Sheridan Hills in the semis.

The Sharks (20-5) had hoped to gain a measure of redemption from the rematch, just as they had in the regional semifinals when they avenged a regular-season loss to Boca Raton Christian. The week also was buoyed when Rantin gave birth Monday to a baby girl named Macy.
