The Lady Hawks took down the returning WPIAL champions, the Seneca Valley Raiders, on Monday, Oct. 2 in four sets for this non-section volleyball match.

“That was crazy!” commented junior outside hitter Brenna Manko on how the game unfolded.

The set scores were 25-15, 18-25, 25-21, and 25-21. The Hawks seemed up and down throughout the entire match, but under the guidance of the veteran players, the girl kept their cool in tight situations in order to win the sets. Senior Stephanie Kazalas exemplified this when she served three aces in a row late in the fourth when both teams had scores in the twenties.

This now makes the varsity team’s record 6-4 overall, 4-3 in section, and 2-1 in non-section.

The JV team also got the “W,” winning 2-0. Now, their record stands at 8-2.

The game against the Raiders was also the team’s Dig Pink game, or their breast cancer awareness game. Seventeen different raffle baskets were auctioned off along with other festivities. The total amount raised is not in just yet but should be reported soon.

Thank you to everyone that came out to support the cause and the team!

The girls start a four-game stretch on the road, starting with Peters Township on Thursday, Oct. 5. This is the rematch Kazalas and the rest of the team has been waiting for. It is redemption time!

Go Hawks!
