The girls CYO volleyball tournament began Friday, Nov. 4 with the top 24 teams from each region. Play continued on Saturday at Competitive Edge Sports in King of Prussia with the top eight teams from Friday night’s matches. The anticipation and excitement grew as teams from different regions faced one another for the first time. The top four teams from Saturday played in the semi-final and final games on Sunday.
Sunday’s semi-final matches saw St. Eleanor’s (Region 21) competing against St. Jude (Region 20) and Mother of Divine Providence (Region 21) vs. Villa Maria (Region 17). After two hard-fought matches, the final featured St. Eleanor’s vs. another Region 21 team and rival — Mother of Divine Providence. Both teams reached the finals last year with Mother of Divine Providence winning the championship match.
But this year St. Eleanor’s emerged as champs with a win (25-22, 16-25, 18-16) over Mother of Divine Providence.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
