There’s a change at the top of the Western PA Volleyball Coaches Association’s WPIAL Class 2A rankings released Monday morning.
Our Lady of the Sacred Heart ascends to the top spot in the coaches’ vote from its No. 2 position in last week’s poll.
The Chargers also advanced to the quarterfinals of the Derry Tournament on Saturday before falling in one game to Class 3A No. 1 North Allegheny. They defeated Class 3A Fox Chapel, 1-0, in the quarterfinals.
The Raiders topped the Knights, 2-1, in the championship game of the Seneca Valley Tournament.
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.
