It is time to regroup.
It is time think about next week.
It is time to do what they know they can do.
After losing to a powerhouse Hempfield squad in the LL league playoffs, The Penn Manor Boy’s Volleyball team now must prepare for the District III playoffs.
The Comets (10-5) are ranked third overall in districts, and will begin their district play against Chambersburg High School on Monday at 6 p.m. at Dallastown High School.
“If we work hard and don’t get down on ourselves if we get down [in the game], I think we can do well,” said senior middle hitter, Aaron Gochnauer.
The Comets have four seniors and two sophomores in their starting lineup, and haven’t gotten much credit despite their unexpected success this season.
“They have proved that they can adapt to any team, and they refuse to give up, as we saw in the first round of Leagues against Garden Spot, coming back from a 0-2 deficit to win the match,” said Comet’s head coach Chris Telesco.
Senior, Jeremy Funk, the Comet’s leader in kills this season, will look to continue his hot play for Penn Manor throughout these playoffs as they will attempt to make a run at this thing and continue to surprise the league.
“If we play to our potential, we could definitely go far,” said starting sophomore outside hitter, Dylan Weber.
Manor has great-united team chemistry and as Gochnauer said, “It is not just a one person show.”
The Comets will have the opportunity, starting Monday, to show what else their team is made of.
