ALLPORT - After watching fifth-seeded Cambria Heights upset fourth-seeded Bellwood-Antis on Tuesday, West Branch head coach Terry Trude knew his team was going to have a dogfight on its hands.
So, when the Lady Highlanders came to town on Thursday to face off against the Lady Warriors in the District 6 Class A semifinals, Trude had a gameplan.

ST. MARYS - After taking out eighth-seeded Oswayo Valley on Tuesday in the opening round of the District 9 Class A tournament, the Curwensville volleyball team had the odds stacked against it in the quarterfinals in a match with top-seeded Elk County Catholic.
The Lady Tide saw first-hand how much of a buzzsaw the Lady Crusaders are as Elk County Catholic cruised to a straight-set win on Thursday evening. The Lady Tide fell by scores of 25-8, 25-14 and 25-13, eliminating them from the tournament.
"We have not played against a team of this caliber," said Curwensville head coach Sandy Bailor. "We came out and gave it our best. The girls played their hearts out. I told them ‘you come up against some teams that are a heck of a lot better than you.'
"We just have to walk out of the gym knowing that we got beat by a great team. They're a good, hard-hitting team, but I couldn't be any more prouder of my girls."
Not only did Curwensville seniors Jazmin Soult, Alaina Stiles, Ciara Strickland and Logan Witherite play in their final volleyball game, but Bailor also coached her final game on Thursday as she is calling it a career after 18 seasons at the helm of the Lady Tide. more...
