Trojans grab two more wins for second straight day

As rare as a boys' volleyball doubleheader is, the Trojans took part in their second straight doubleheader in as many days.  This time, Parkland first traveled to Bethlehem Catholic to take on a very improved and scrappy Golden Hawks team.  In the end, Parkland earned the 3-0 (25-14, 25-22, 25-16) win.  45 minutes later, the Trojans squared away with Liberty to conclude each team's regular-season schedule.  Parkland was able to shake off the travel legs and take the match 3-1 (25-21, 25-15, 17-25, 25-16).  The win concludes Parkland's regular season which saw them end 17-1 (15-1 EPC).

Next up for the Trojans are the EPC semifinals on Friday night.  #1 Parkland will play the lowest remaining seed after the Quarterfinals at 7:00pm.  #2 Whitehall will host the highest remaining seed after the Quarterfinals.
