Four Tigers Named All-State by PVCA
Four members of the North Allegheny boys’ volleyball team were named All-State in Class AAA by the Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association. Senior middle hitter Jack Birch, senior outside hitter Cole Dorn, senior setter Caleb Schall and senior libero Ryan Treser received all-state honors this weekend from the PVCA.
All four players played a pivotal role in North Allegheny’s 18-1 season, capturing a fourth straight PIAA and WPIAL title. Birch led the team in blocks (79) and finished second on the team in kills (221). Dorn missed nearly a month of action with a severely sprained ankle and still finished third on the team in kills (208) and posted a team-best hitting percentage of .392. Schall, who was also tabbed the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Boys Volleyball Player of the Year and WPIAL Co-MVP, facilitated North Allegheny’s high-powered attack with 866 assists. NA’s defensive stalwart was Treser with a program single-season record 537 digs and also set a new program all-time best with 704 digs.
For Dorn and Schall, it’s the second consecutive season both players were named to the all-state team.
