Class 2A Volleyball: River Hill misses chance

College Park - One lesson high school athletes learn is to seize opportunity when they can.

Last night, River Hill (15-3) learned that lesson the hard way in a 25-27, 13-25, 26-24, 25-20, 15-12 loss to Rising Sun (11-6) in the state Class 2A semifinals at the University of Maryland's Ritchie Coliseum.

The seventh-ranked Hawks were one point from beating Rising Sun, the defending Class 2A champion, three games to none and advancing to the state championship. Instead, their season is over.

The Tigers will play Liberty, a three-games-to-none winner over Eastern Tech in Friday's Class 2A state title game. That game will be played at 8 p.m., also at Ritchie Coliseum.
