West York's girls' volleyball team placed second in Pool A at the District 3 Class AA championship pool play at Lower Dauphin on Wednesday.

The Bulldogs got off to a fast start, dropping only one of six games in their first two matches. They swept Trinity in their first match, 25-11, 25-22, 25-9, and then defeated Manheim Central, 25-19, 25-14, 21-25. This set up a showdown with Brandywine Heights to decide who would claim the pool's top seed.

Brandywine Heights won its first two matches, dropping one game in each match. The Bullets first beat Manheim Central, 25-13, 25-18, 22-25. In their second match, they defeated Trinity, 25-18, 22-25, 25-14.

In the final match, Brandywine Heights got the best of West York, winning two of the three games, 25-19, 25-16, 17-25 to win the pool.

Katelyn Ort smacked a combined 35 kills and saved 23 digs to pace the Bulldogs. Bethany Richardson added 25 kills, while Emily Sides dished out 79 assists to guide the offense.

The Bulldogs move on to the District 3 semifinals on Saturday at Wilson High School, where they will face off against Susquehannock. Brandywine Heights will play Berks Catholic in the other semifinal.
