Archbishop Carroll’s girls volleyball team took a defeat in the PIAA volleyball state opener after winning six previous titles.

Archbishop Carroll took a loss from Garnet Valley High School in the District 12 opener on Tuesday at home. Garnet Valley won the first three out of five sets in the game.

“Yesterday we had a lot of energy, and were extremely excited to play,” said Katherine Rosanova, a senior. “However, in the end we lost that energy, and got in our heads. We did a lot of amazing things, but there are still a few things I feel we could’ve done better.”

Carroll’s volleyball is no stranger to States, as the team has won six consecutive District 12 Class 4A volleyball titles in previous years.

Carroll made it to Tuesday’s contest by winning against Philadelphia’s Northeast High School. Carroll defeated Northeast by winning three sets with scores(28-26, 25-20, and 25-19.

“It feels great; we worked very hard this season to make it to this point,” said Emma Jacobs, a
senior. “We are so honored to play at such a competitive level.”

Throughout the season, and district opener game, there were many highlights.

“A few highlights would be winning against Lansdale Catholic, and playing a great game against
Archbishop Wood,” said Rosanova. “Some of the most memorable moments from the game was
the energy during our serving run by Mia Straface at the end of the first set.”
