Coaches association releases Week 7 WPIAL girls volleyball rankings

Monday, October 14, 2019 | 11:54 AM

As the WPIAL girls volleyball regular season enters its final week, additional section champions will be crowned, and the final tickets to the WPIAL playoffs will be punched.

There is movement in each of the four Western Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association classification rankings this week.

The top four in Class AAAA, AAA and A stayed the same, but Freeport, on the strength of three dual-match wins last week and a victory at its Fall Fest Tournament on Saturday, ticked up one spot to No. 2 behind North Catholic in the Class AA rankings.

The WPIAL playoff pairings are scheduled to be released next Monday with opening matches as early as the next day.

The four WPIAL championship matches will be Nov. 2 at Fox Chapel.
