Men's Volleyball, ranked 24th in the state before the weekend, traveled down to Miami for the Smoothie King Tournament at Ransom Everglades and finished a perfect 5-0 to capture the Gold Bracket tournament championship. DP (18-5) took down 11th-ranked Miami Columbus, as well as Archbishop McCarthy and South Broward Friday to earn a berth in the Gold Bracket playoffs. Saturday, DP beat second-ranked Timber Creek in straight sets (25-19, 25-22) in the semifinal that moved them into the championship match against host Ransom Everglades. The Panthers dominated in the first game, 25-15, but Ransom responded in the second set with a 25-21 victory to tie the match at a game apiece. In the final set, DP overcame a raucous home crowd advantage and dispatched the 13th-ranked Raiders, 15-12, to win the championship. Jake Sanchez and Jordan Poventud earned All-Tournament Team honors, as did Jon Diedrich, who was also named the tournament's Most Valuable Player. DP will be back on the court quickly as they host Timber Creek tomorrow night.
