Penn Cambria and Bishop Guilfoyle Catholic both landed two players on the Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association All-State team.
Senior Taylor Freeman and junior Tori Shingler of Penn Cambria were named all-state along with the Bishop Guilfoyle junior duo of Logan McIntosh and Annie Dombrowski. Altoona's Hannah Moore and Bishop Carroll's Sarah Gomish were also selected all-state.
Moore was named all-state in Class AAA while Freeman and Shingler were Class AA all-state. Dombrowski, McIntosh and Gomish made the Class A all-state team. All six players were also named to PVCA All-District 6 first team.
Penn Cambria finished the regular season undefeated en route to District 6, Class AA championship. The Lady Panthers also won the Laurel Highlands Athletic Conference title.
Freeman and Shingler were a dynamic one-two punch for the Penn Cambria offense. Freeman recorded 505 kills, which set the Penn Cambria single season record, while Shingler added 320 kills and 147 blocks.
"It is a great honor to be named all state. Their hard work and dedication has been rewarded. They are great kids," Penn Cambria coach Leah Montgomery said. "I have Tori one more year which I am thankful for, but I will definitely miss Taylor. I am very proud of them."
McIntosh and Dombrowski helped Bishop Guilfoyle to a 15-5 record. BG spent the majority of the season ranked in the PVCA Top 10 poll. McIntosh led BG in service points (190) and digs (503) while Dombrowski led BG with 290 kills and added 152 service points and 240 digs.
"This is a well deserved honor for Logan and Annie," Bishop Guilfoyle Catholic coach Bob Kasun said. "Both Logan and Annie have worked extremely hard to become all-state caliber players. They were instrumental in all of our team success this year. This is a positive reflection on our whole team. Our team was very talented and had great chemistry."
Moore finished her Altoona career with 1,310 digs, 624 kills and 661 service points along with passing accuracy of 2.24 on 1,565 attempts. She was a four-year starter and captain and helped Altoona to the District 6 championship match.
"Hannah Moore is an outstanding all-around volleyball player," Altoona coach Karan Price said. "She serves a tough jump float, can pass nails and when hitting, she has the ability to read and find openings on the court as well as any player we've ever had at Altoona. It's great for Hannah and our team to be honored in this way."
Gomish helped Bishop Carroll to a memorable season in which the Lady Huskies advanced to the District 6 championship match for the first time in school history. BC advanced to the state quarterfinals before bowing out to eventual state runner-up, Williamson.
Gomish compiled 826 kills this season en route to passing 1,000 career kills and was twice named the American Volleyball Coaches Association and MaxPreps Player of the Week.
"Sarah is an all-around leader. She is focused, smart, driven, and she has a high volleyball IQ," Bishop Carroll Catholic coach Joe Skura said. "Her leadership and effort on the court has been a strong motivator for our team. Sarah is definitely among the best in the state. Not only am I proud of Sarah's efforts and accomplishments, but our entire team and school community is very proud of her as well."
