Sunday, October 11, 2020 | 11:01 AM

Penn-Trafford girls volleyball coach Jim Schall predicted he’d learn a lot about his team the last week of September.

His squad met a tough challenge, including two matches against Section 3-4A leader Oakland Catholic and a match against rival Norwin.

Penn-Trafford went 2-2 during the week, defeating Hempfield and Norwin but falling twice in close matches to Oakland Catholic.

The victory against Norwin elevated Penn-Trafford into the Top 10 in Class 4A.

Penn-Trafford had a key battle Oct. 8 against Latrobe, a team it lost to early in the season. That rematch ended too late for this edition.

The Warriors also have matches scheduled against Hempfield, Norwin and Connellsville.
