Schuylkill Valley to meet Derry in state volleyball quarterfinals

Published On: May 30 2014 07:04:34 PM EDT

The Panthers will play Derry out of District 7 on Saturday in the PIAA-AA volleyball quarterfinals.


The state volleyball tournament also continues on Saturday. For Schuylkill Valley, that means a quarterfinal showdown with Derry out of District 7 in the AA bracket.

The Panthers rolled in their tournament opener Wednesday night, sweeping District 12 champ Carver E&S.

Schuylkill Valley feels like it can handle anyone at this point, thanks to its veteran leadership and experience from a challenging District 3 tournament last week.

The Panthers have solidified themselves as an elite team not only within Berks County, but within District 3. They feel like this is the next step as the program continues its rise.

The match is set for a noon start Saturday at Altoona high school.
