Unbeaten Shanahan rolls into semifinal
Top-seeded Bishop Shanahan did Tuesday night to No. 8 Hatboro-Horsham what they did to 19 other opponents this season — they swatted them away, then walked out of the gym victors.
The Eagles improved to 20-0 overall by dumping the Hatters, 25-22, 25-16, 25-19, in the quarterfinals of the District 1 4A tournament.
Shanahan flies into Thursday’s semifinal, where the Eagles will host fourth-seeded, and Ches-Mont League National Division rival, Downingtown West.
The win also clinched Shanahan’s place in the PIAA tournament. Shanahan was paced by the play of Cara Shultz, who had 11 kills and five aces. Renee Shultz added nine kills, 15 assists, eight digs and an ace.
Caendra Ashman notched 13 assists, three aces and three digs. Alysa Wright collected six kills.
The Eagles have yet to drop a set in two district games.
