(East Rockhill PA) I saw the Pennridge Rams defeat the Souderton Indians, 3-0, in high school boys volleyball Thursday night at Pennridge High School.
I had never seen a high school volleyball game before. However, I had seen a number of Gordon College women’s volleyball games a few years ago so I wasn’t a total newbie to what went on.
I knew nothing about either Souderton or Pennridge and chose the game because the outdoor conditions (40-50 degrees) around here “encourage” watching an indoor sport.
It turned out, as I learned in online Intelligencer, that Pennridge is a very good, undefeated team. They are now 5-0 in the Suburban One League Continental Conference. Last year Pennridge was the PIAA District One Class AAA champ.
The Rams jumped in front early in all three games (25-17, 25-15, 25-12) versus Souderton (4-1). That early lead was challenged only in the third game.
I was impressed with the play of #12 of Pennridge. However, with no program available, I cannot name him. This player was very successful in finishing plays for the Rams. He wasn’t very tall but he could leap with good timing.
