Despite no one recording more than two kills, the Centurions were able to use strong serves to throw Brentwood off balance in the opening set, prevailing 25-19. Brentwood put up more resistance in set 2, but freshman Rebecca Hess tallied four of her seven kills in the frame, helping Greensburg Central Catholic to a 25-23 win.
The Spartans went up 6-2 to begin the final set, but the Centurions ripped off a 9-2 run, as Sarah Petnuch picked up four of her team-high eight kills in the frame. Despite a late push by Brentwood, which was paced by Anna Betz’s eight kills and four aces, Greensburg Central Catholic finished things off, 25-22.
The Centurions will play No. 2 Carmichaels in the WPIAL semifinals Wednesday at a time and site to be determined.
Tyrone 3, Ligonier Valley 0 — Bella Vargulish had nine service points, three kills and two blocks, and Abby Neidbalson had six kills, seven assists and two blocks, but Ligonier Valley (7-9) lost in the first round of the District 6 playoffs.
Hempfield senior swimmer Zoey Wilson made a verbal commitment to St. Francis (Pa.) on Monday night. Wilson finished fifth in the 200-yard freestyle (1:54.13) at the WPIAL championships last season and qualified for the PIAA meet.
