Warwick defeated Manheim Township Thursday 3-0 (25-12, 25-15, 25-15) and have tied Hempfield for first place in Section One with identical 9 wins and 1 loss records.
The Warriors were led by Nate Wenger (16 assists), Jacob Lobb (15 digs) and Kyle Charles (7 kills).
Township was led by Arnav Dixit’s 11 assists, Michael Gallagher’s seven kills.
If the Warriors and the Black Knights finish tied for the top spot, they’ll share the Section 1 title, and the L-L League playoff seed will come down to the tiebreaker criteria. Since Warwick and Hempfield split their season series, it could come down to the D3 power ratings, where Warwick is No. 5 and Hempfield is No. 6. Stay tuned. Whoever gets that 1-seed will host the L-L League semifinals next Friday. FYI: In the latest PVCA state rankings, Hempfield is No. 5 and Warwick is No. 7 in Class 3A.
