2018 District XI AAA Boys Volleyball Championship Bracket
In another back-and-forth battle with Whitehall, the Trojans seemed to be in control before the Zephyrs roared back to take the 5th set and the match 3-2 (23-25, 25-22, 20-25, 25-10, 16-14). The loss closes out the Trojans season while Whitehall advances into the District XI AAA final against reigning champion Emmaus. Emmaus advanced into the final with another convincing win over Nazareth 3-0 (25-18, 25-15, 25-18).
Parkland's four seniors (Nick Mohr, Brayden Koch, Derek Hockenberry and RJ Corba) will be greatly missed next year. Their time and commitment to the Parkland Volleyball program have set a great stage for the underclassmen and future players in the program.
Parkland loaded their bus on Thursday afternoon and made the long trip to Delaware Valley High School to begin the District XI AAA tournament. Fortunately for the Trojans, the only issues they encountered were the multiple traffic lights that were out of power along their route. The Trojans arrived at DVHS on time and left with two wins, advancing them to the District XI AAA semifinal on Tuesday. In the 1st Round match against #11 Wyoming Valley West, Parkland made up for some lost time by cruising to a 3-0 (25-8, 25-13, 25-15) win. In the Quarterfinal match against host #3 Delaware Valley, Parkland started quick, building large leads in all three sets before closing out the Warriors 3-0 (25-22, 25-16, 25-20). DV showed some signs of physical play but Parkland defensive effort seemed to have an answer every time. Logan Iacobelli had a lot of digs, while Ian Dashukewich added 10 blocks and 9 kills.
Next up for the Trojans is the District XI AAA semifinal match with #2 Whitehall. That match will take place on Tuesday, May 22nd at 5:30pm @ Allen HS. The winner advances to the final against the winner of #1 Emmaus and #5 Nazareth. The final will be held on Thursday, May 24th. Both teams that make the final also qualify for the PIAA AAA state tournament.
The 2018 District XI AAA bracket has been officially released. #6 Parkland will travel to Delaware Valley High School on Thursday to take on #11 Wyoming Valley West at 5:00pm.
