Altoona, Guilfoyle garner first seeds

Both Altoona teams will be the teams to beat in their respective classifications in the upcoming District 6 high school volleyball tournament.

Once-beaten Altoona Area was unveiled as the top seed in Class 3A when the district released its playoff pairings on Friday. Meanwhile, Bishop Guilfoyle Catholic received the No. 1 slot in Class 2A.

The teams will play for district championships on Wednesday at Tyrone Area High School.

Altoona will meet State College in the championship match. Guilfoyle will take on either third-seeded Huntingdon or second-seeded DuBois — those squads meet in a semifinal match on Monday.
