North Catholic regains top spot in volleyball coaches association’s Class 2A rankings
Monday, April 18, 2022 | 12:08 PM
A section clash last week between WPIAL heavyweights produced a change at the top of the latest Western Pa. Volleyball Coaches Association Class 2A rankings released Monday morning.
OLSH moved down just one spot to No. 2. The Chargers and Trojans will meet again May 3 at North Catholic.
Gateway, the Section 2 leader at 3-0, made the biggest jump in the 2A poll, from No. 8 to No. 6.
Upper St. Clair and Latrobe did the same as the Panthers moved up one spot to No. 9, and Latrobe dipped one place to No. 10.
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.
