The Tigers capped this past week with a semifinal finish at the prestigious Koller Classic at Central York High School. NA suffered a close 25-23 loss to District 3’s Central Dauphin in a rematch of last year’s Class 3A state title matchup won by the Tigers, 3-1.
NA also remained unbeaten in Section 2 play with a 3-0 victory over Butler on Thursday.
The Raiders topped Canon-McMillan 2-0 in the title match.
Upper St. Clair returned to the Class 3A rankings at No. 10.
OLSH began last week with two key Section 1 victories, including Tuesday’s five-set battle with No. 4 Ambridge.
Each week, all of the WPIAL coaches have the opportunity to vote for the teams in the top-10 rankings. The classification players of the week are selected by the coaches association based on coaches nominations.
