Sacred Heart volleyball has a long history of meeting Marian Catholic, perennial District 11 champion, in the PIAA state tournament. And every time, SHA has come up short. But all that changed in the state quarterfinal on Saturday afternoon at Schuylkill Valley High School.
Led by co-captains, Bella O'Toole '22 and Aly Albanese '23, the Lady Lions came out fighting and put Marian away 3-1 with scores of 25-10, 25-19, 22-25, and 25-17. The win sends SHVB to the Single A state semifinals on Tuesday, November 16, against Canton High School. The game will be played at 6:00 p.m. at Hazelton Area High School.
Good luck SHA Volleyball!
