Girls Volleyball: Baldwin completes a satisfying season

Ken Wunderley profiles the Baldwin girls volleyball team. Read his story below.

The Baldwin High School girls volleyball team saw its season come to an end in the PIAA Class AAA semifinals on Nov. 11, but the Fighting Highlanders turned in the program's best performance since 1995.

"The girls did way more than I ever expected," said first-year coach Chris Kelly, who served as an assistant coach the previous three years. "I knew we had a pretty good team, but never expected to make it this far. Our main goal was to make the [WPIAL] playoffs, since we hadn't qualified in a couple years.

"I never dreamed that we would win a WPIAL title and advance to the PIAA semifinals. It's certainly a season to remember."

Baldwin earned its postseason berth by winning the Class AAA Section 5 title, then recorded four victories in the WPIAL tournament, including a pair of exciting 3-2 victories against Seneca Valley in the semifinals and North Allegheny in the title match. It was Baldwin's first WPIAL title since 2003.
