Ken Wunderley profiles the Baldwin girls volleyball team. Read his story below.
The Baldwin High School girls volleyball team found out the hard way that a good start doesn't guarantee a victory. Especially when you're facing a team that has been to the PIAA finals five years in a row.
The Fighting Highlanders jumped out to a 2-0 lead in Tuesday's PIAA Class AAA semifinal match against Landisville Hempfield, but came up short in the final three sets, thus ending their hopes of playing in Saturday's title match.
"It's so frustrating to see the girls get that far and fall short," Baldwin coach Chris Kelly said. "They deserved a better fate."
Baldwin opened the match with a 28-26 victory, then followed with a 26-24 win in the second set.
