Mourning reaches girls’ volleyball regional semifinals for third consecutive season

With a third consecutive trip to the regional semifinals as the immediate goal, the Mourning girls’ volleyball team wasted little time in getting that done Tuesday night, mowing down South Broward in straight sets, 25-16, 25-18, 25-10, at Mourning High School.

The Sharks (16-5) will host Ronald Reagan at 2 p.m. Saturday in a rematch of last week’s district final and with hopes to qualify for a first-ever Region 4-7A final.

“All three of my hitters got the job done out there [Tuesday] and now we’re hoping the third time is the charm on Saturday,” Mourning coach Dee Rey said. “Right now the girls are playing really confident and really together.”

The three hitters to whom Rey referred were Camila Rubinovich, Beatriz Agosto and freshman sensation Milana Datieva, who had nine kills and five service aces. Rubinovich and Agosto finished with seven and six kills, respectively.

South Broward, which finished 8-9, was led by senior Katherine Dudra, who finsihed with 11 kills, six digs and one ace.
