The girls volleyball team will begin defending its back-to-back WPIAL championships with a section game tonight against Peters Township.

The away game starts at 7 p.m.

Maddi Sgattoni, a senior, said that even though the team lost a lot of seniors last year, there are many underclassmen who can fill those key roles.

“Underclassmen can really step their game up and contribute in positions that the seniors played last year,” Sgattoni said.

Sgattoni keeps her motivation going by knowing it’s her senior year and she wants to make the best of it.

The team is also placed in a new section. The section includes added teams Upper St. Clair, Canon-McMillan, and Peters Township, all of which made playoffs last year.
