Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS - By Rich Flana­gan For Dig­i­tal First Me­dia

NETHER PROV­I­DENCE >> Bri­anna Fisher wanted her team­mates to for­get about the Cen­tral League ti­tle loss to Gar­net Val­ley as quickly as pos­si­ble. While the re­sult was not what they had hoped for, the sec­ond part of their sea­son was about to be­gin.

Safe to say, Fisher and her team­mates re­fo­cused just in time.

Fisher posted a teamhigh 19 kills along with two aces to lead Strath Haven past Con­estoga, 3-0, Tuesday night in the first round of the PIAA Dis­trict 1 Class 4A playoffs. The Pan­thers cruised to a com­mand­ing vic­tory, win­ning 25-18, 25-15, 25-11.

Fisher tal­lied six kills in the first and sec­ond sets, re­spec­tively, and was pleased with how her team re­sponded after the league ti­tle loss.

The Pioneers (12-9), whose only leads came after scor­ing the first point in the sec­ond and third sets, were led up front by Lau­ren Har­ris with five kills in the first set.

Con­estoga head coach Diana Felker said her team couldn’t slow down Fisher.

“They’re a com­pletely dif­fer­ent team with her be­cause there’s no ro­ta­tion where they don’t have big hit­ters in the front row,” Felker said.

Strath Haven (12-7) moves on to play Ply­mouth Whitemarsh in the next round.
