What to watch for in WPIAL sports on March 26, 2024: WPIAL volleyball champs open section schedule

Monday, March 25, 2024 | 11:58 PM

With a rainy forecast for Tuesday, we look indoors to WPIAL boys volleyball section openers.

Defending district winner North Catholic is hoping to become the third school in the last decade to repeat as Class 2A champions.

The Trojans open up their Section 1-2A schedule Tuesday with a visit to one of the other repeat performers.

North Catholic visits Beaver County Christian in one of three Section 1-2A matches.

The Eagles won back-to-back WPIAL 2A boys volleyball crowns in 2016-2017.

The other school to repeat as 2A champs in 2018-2019 is another team from Section 1-2A, Ambridge.

The Bridgers, who lost to the Trojans in the district finals last season, are home to traditional power Our Lady of the Sacred Heart.

Wild matchup

Rain might be the big winner Tuesday, but there’s always a chance if you play on turf.

The home of the WPIAL baseball championships is also the regular season home for Wash High.

Washington will host Bentworth under the lights in a Section 1-2A game slated for 7 p.m.

The Little Prexies were 2-1 after their section opener at Bentworth on Monday, this after they won only four games a season ago.

Washington defeated Bentworth on Monday, 6-3.

The Bearcats were a playoff team a year ago and enter Tuesday’s game 0-2.

Spring break

Two district diamond teams are participating in the Ripken Experience this week in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

The Avonworth baseball team concludes four days of beach and baseball when it faces Burlington Central (Ill.) as the Antelopes have had great success before falling to Padua Franciscan (Ohio) on Monday, 3-2.

Meanwhile, the experience is just begging for the Beaver softball team.

The Bobcats begin four days in the sun (hopefully) facing Westerville Central (Ohio).
