UPPER DUBLIN — Garnet Valley swept past District 11 runner-up Emmaus, 3-0, Tuesday in a PIAA Class 4A state tournament opener at Upper Dublin High School, while rolling up scores of 25-17, 25-20, 25-23.

“Overall, I was really pleased with how we played tonight,” Garnet Valley head coach Greg Wood said. “We got out of system midway through the third set, but really, this game was a tough draw for both teams tonight. You had two top centers in the state in this game.

That would be Garnet Valley senior Rachel Cain and Emmaus’ Caroline Bond. The Jaguars, the District 1 4A runner-up, got 41 assists, two digs, three aces and two kills from Cain, an East Stroudsburg commit.

“Rachel set beautifully tonight, did a good job of getting us in system,” Wood said.

The victory boosted the Jaguars’ record to 20-3. Two of the losses were to Bishop Shanahan, the second one in the District 1 Class 4A championship final.

The Garnet Valley attack was punctuated Tuesday night by kills from seniors Ally Hartney (18 kills, two blocks, three aces, hit .593) and Emma Rokosky (14 kills, six digs, two aces, hit .520).

“Ally has been fantastic,” Wood said. “She’s hit .500 for us all year, has been in double digits for kills and blocks.”

The Jaguars also received tough defense Tuesday night from Rowan-bound senior Julia Bowes (28 digs) and senior Gwen Clark (six digs, four kills).
