2024 EPC Champions

The 2024 EPC Final started in #1 Parkland's favor as they raced out to an unheard-of 15-0 lead. Fortunately for the Trojans, that set the tone for the rest of the night as they were able to capture their third straight EPC crown with the 3-0 (25-9, 25-18, 25-15) win over #3 Whitehall.  The win is the program's 15th conference title and 5th in the last 10 years.

1st Team EPC All-Star Josh Nation (Jr. OH) led the offense with 13 kills and added 9 digs, 2 blocks, and 1 ace.  Fellow 1st Team EPC All-Star Luke Smith (Sr. MH) 6 kills, 6 blocks, and 8 digs while Owen Rodgers (Sr. OPP) erupted for 10 kills, 2 blocks, and 3 digs.  Will Stiles (Sr. S) paced the offense with 31 assists but contributed from the service line, serving all 14 points in the first set while collecting 5 aces and 5 digs.

Next up for the Trojans is the District XI AAA tournament which they will enter as the #1 seed and receive a bye into the semifinals.  They will take on the winner of the #4 Liberty vs #5 Nazareth match.  The District XI AAA bracket is very similar to the EPC bracket with the exception being that Freedom will be the #6 seed and #7 Northampton.  The semifinals will take place at Catasauqua High School on Thursday, May 23rd.
