The girls volleyball program at Lansdale Catholic High School set some high goals this season. The plan was simple: “3, 2, 1, Let’s Get it Done!”
Members of this year’s team, which included six seniors along with third year head coach Joann Pisch, have captured three PIAA District 12 championships, two Catholic League championships were looking for their first state championship.
The Crusaders accomplished one of the goals on that list Oct. 27 with their repeat victory as Philadelphia Catholic League champions with a 3-0 win over AA rival Archbishop Wood.
On Nov.1 the team grabbed their third District 12 championship with a 3-0 win over city champion Masterman.
The Crusaders came two steps closer to no. 1 on that list, a state championship, with a 3-0 win over York Suburban in Round 1 of the PIAA state playoffs and 3-1 victory over local AA rival Pope John Paul II in the second round.
But the title run came to an end Tuesday, Nov. 12 with a loss in straight sets to Delone Catholic, which had been the top-ranked team in the state.
Lansdale Catholic aimed high this season and came within a hair of fulfilling all its goals.
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.
