Urbana VB

Urbana's volleyball team raises the Class 4A state championship trophy after beating Arundel in five sets Thursday night at Harford Community College. It's the first volleyball state crown in program history.

BEL AIR — With the game at her fingers, Julia Gustafson imagined there was no pressure. She bounced the volleyball a few times, took a deep breath and tossed it in the air like she has thousands of times before.

Except this serve was for an elusive state championship, and her Urbana team had already failed to close it out in the two previous sets. But that was no matter for Gustafson.
