Counting Down 15 Top HS Sports Stories from EYT Media Area: No. 15 Clarion Area Volleyball
NO. 15 – CLARION VOLLEYBALL EARNS D9 TITLE; PIAA QUARTERFINAL APPEARANCE
Over the last decade plus, Clarion volleyball has been the predominant volleyball team in District 9. But surprisingly, heading into the 2018 season the Lady Cats hadn’t won a D9 title since 2015.
That all changed Nov. 3 at St. Marys High School when Clarion defeated Ridgway, 3-0 (30-28, 25-13, 26-24) to take home the D9 crown.
Hailey Sintobin (11 kills, 2 blocks, .689 hitting percentage), Dorothy Kalinowksi (8 kills, .538 hitting) and Brenna Campbell (38 set assists) led the way for the Lady Cats.
Clarion then went on to beat Cambridge Springs, 3-0 (25-20, 25-19, 25-17) in the opening round of the PIAA Tournament behind 30 assists and 10 digs from Campbell, 10 kills and 10 digs from Burns, eight kills and three blocks from Kalinowski, seven kills from Sintobin, 11 digs from Kait Constantino and 10 digs from KK Girvin.
The Lady Cats run ended in the PIAA quarterfinals with a 3-1 loss to Northern Cambria.
