Going into the Koller Classic Central York boy’s volleyball team was coming off a hot week after sweeping league opponents West York and Spring Grove to make their record 3-1.

The Panthers dominated the entire tournament, they went 8-0 in pool play with big wins over Northern York, Cambridge Springs, Pennridge and Chambersburg. In the second round of playoffs, Central defeated State College after junior libero Ryan Roberts went on a 12-point service run. The real challenge however came when the Panthers faced the historically well-known North Alleghany Tigers who beat Central in a previous tournament this season. In a highly contested game, the Panthers defeated the Tigers 25-23 to move onto the championship game. When facing the Northeastern Bobcats in the final round the Panthers fell short losing 2-0 in a best-to-three match. 

“[We] just gotta get them back later in the season,” said senior Devon Marsh. 

After a dominating performance the entire day, the Panthers look onward to the rest of their season fired up.
