Girls volleyball stays alive in district playoffs

The Girls Volleyball team beat Fort LeBeouf in the 2nd round of the PIAA district playoffs.

Corry Girls volleyball traveled to Meadville on Wednesday, October 26, for the first round of the PIAA district playoffs.

The Lady Beavers beat the Fort LeBeouf Bison earlier in the regular season and were set for a playoff rematch. During the regular season match up, the Beavers had a couple of close sets with the Bison, but were able to come away with a road win. The Beavers were favorites heading into the match up, and it was a good one.

The Beavers and Bison would go back and fourth in the first set, but the Beavers would come out on top 25-21. With a 1-0 lead heading into the second set, the Beavers confidence was quickly shot down when the Bison came out firing. The Beavers would fall 11-25 in the second set. The Beavers were able to rebound in the third set, taking it 25-20 to take a 2-1 lead.

Heading into what would be the final set, the Beavers were looking to close out the Bison, ending their season. The Beavers scored 12 straight points, with 3 of those being an Ace from Sophomore Makenna Moore. Moore broke the record of 87 aces in a single season. Moore currently has 93, and is looking to add to her total before the seasons end. The Beavers shut the door on the Bison, winning the fourth and final set 25 to 18.

The Lady Beavers are headed back to Meadville on Wednesday, Nov 2. They’ll take on Seagertown in the third round of the PIAA district playoffs.
