Unbeaten Shanahan rolls into state semifinals behind Ashman, Shultz sisters

BRYN MAWR  – Cara Shultz filled the stat sheet with 20 kills, 16 digs and seven aces to power unbeaten Bishop Shanahan to a 3-0 conquest of previously unbeaten Archbishop Carroll in the PIAA-AAAA quarterfinals Saturday at Harriton.

The victory sends the Eagles (23-0), who prevailed by scores of 27-25, 25-14, 26-24, into a state semifinal showdown with defending PIAA 4A champion Parkland Tuesday at a time and site to be determined.

Other key contributors for Shanahan were Renee Shultz (12 kills, 28 assists, 13 digs) and Ceandra Ashman (16 assists, 2 aces, 8 digs).

“It’s just another challenge,” Shanahan coach Greg Ashman said of the semifinal matchup with Parkland in the Daily Local News. “We beat the third-ranked team in the state in Carroll, now we have to face No. 2. There’s no easy road.”

Shanahan is currently ranked No. 1 in the state in the PA Volleyball Coaches Association poll.
