Trojans fall in PIAA 3A Final

Parkland's magical season came to an end on Saturday in the PIAA AAA Final.  Facing an extremely talented and hungry Shaler Area team, Parkland found themselves chasing the Titans the majority of the match before Shaler closed it out 3-0 (25-21, 25-15, 25-20).  The match was a complete reversal of the 2023 PIAA AAA Final which saw these same teams play each other, but Parkland having the upper hand then.

Leading the way for Parkland was Josh Nation (Jr. OH) with 11 kills while Owen Rodgers (Sr. OPP) added 7 kills.  Alex Wilby (Sr. OH) added 6 kills, Luke Smith (Sr. MH) had 5 kills, Will Siltes (Sr. S) 4 kills, and Brady Hayward (Sr. MH) added 2 kills.  Stiles also directed the offense with 28 assists.  Kumayl Soonasra (Sr. L) collected 11 digs and Ahmad Jaffer (Sr. DS) also had 5 digs.
