Bishop Carroll earns share of LHAC volleyball title

— The Bishop Carroll Catholic High School girls' volleyball team avenged an Oct. 1 loss, defeating Bishop Guilfoyle 25-23, 25-20, 23-25, 25-22 to capture the Laurel Highlands Athletic Conference co-championship.

The Lady Huskies share the title with the Lady Marauders because the season split represented the two programs’ only losses.

Senior middle hitter Sarah Gomish had 29 kills to lead Bishop Carroll, while outside hitter Ellie Yahner contributed 11 kills and 15 service points, and senior middle blocker Hayley Holsberger added 18 kills. Bishop Carroll setter Janelle Gueguen tallied 57 assists for the evening. Bishop Carroll and Bishop Guilfoyle both finished their regular seasons at 17-1.

  “This was their night,” Bishop Carroll coach Joe Skura said. “We have been talking since that loss at BG about what we wanted to do tonight, and we did our jobs. Our girls were completely phenomenal tonight and played their ‘A’ game. We have to credit our fans. Our gym was packed with fans from both Bishop Guilfoyle and Bishop Carroll and we certainly appreciated the fan support on our home turf. We've got a special team and I'm excited to see what they will as we head into District 6 playoffs.”

   “We went in with a job to do,” said Gomish. “We knew it required our total focus and composure. We played as one team and that is all it took. The game stands for itself. It feels awesome to win the conference again. Ever since we won our sophomore year, we've been wanting again. To earn the conference again as seniors makes the win over Bishop Guilfoyle all that much sweeter.”

  Bishop Guilfoyle's Annie Dombrowski had 19 kills and 12 digs in her team's defeat.

  “This was a proud moment for our program, our school, and our fans,” Skura added. “Just seven years ago, Bishop Carroll was at the bottom of the conference. To win the title two times in three years is a great accomplishment and shows what this team's hard work can do. I really want to thank our loyal fans for being their tonight to be part of all of this and the parents who made the gym so special for the team tonight. This was a huge surge to pull us into playoffs.”
