During their five-year long rampage through the NTL and District IV, it seemed like North Penn-Liberty Volleyball would never lose a big point again. They always found a way. So, when Wellsboro Middle Hitter Shiloh Duff got a piece of a monster swing from Charisma Grega, then got the ensuing set and put it to the floor, the Hornets won the second set 27-25, tying up the District IV Class AA Girls’ Volleyball Championship Match at one set apiece, it may have been a mystery to some how the Mounties would react. The other defining feature of this sensational run, mental toughness, showed up big-time. North Penn-Liberty jumped out to an early lead in the third set, answering any lingering questions, and held on to win their fifth consecutive district title, 3-1 (25-16, 25-27, 25-19, 25-21).
