Boys Volleyball: 2017 East Season Recap

Written by Ken Wunderley on .

The WPIAL Class 3A boys volleyball title match was a Schall brothers special.

North Allegheny, with Dan Schall at the helm, faced Penn-Trafford, with older brother Jim Schall hoping to lead the Warriors to a second straight title.

When the final whistle sounded, little brother picked up bragging rights as North Allegheny swept Penn-Trafford in straight sets to claim its 12th title in 15 years.

"There's no special meaning to beating my brother," said Dan Schall, who claimed his 12th title. "I never pull against my brother at anything. I love him. He's one of the best people on the planet. It was special that we were both in the championship match, but one of us had to win."

It was the second time North Allegheny, the top seed, defeated the No. 2 seeded Warriors. The results were the same, as the Tigers recorded a sweep both times.

Derry Area placed third in the WPIAL Class AA Tournament. The Trojans beat Ambridge, 3-1, in the consolation for third place.
