3 Gateway volleyball players nab all-section honors

Michael Love

The Gateway varsity girls volleyball team, under first-year head coach Greg Lockley, placed a trio of players on the Section 4-AAA all-star team.

The list was compiled based on votes and discussion of the section’s seven head coaches.

Junior middle hitter Pazia Scott and fellow junior Lauren Bolen, an outside hitter, both were selected to the second team.

They were two of 10 players to earn spots on the second team.

In addition to Scott and Bolen, sophomore outside hitter Morgan Bogatay earned honorable mention recognition.

Scott, Bolen and Bogatay helped Gateway to a 6-6 record in section play, and all three are expected to help form the core of the Gators squad in 2015 as they again shoot for a spot in the WPIAL playoffs.

The Gators were in the WPIAL-playoff mix all season and earned key victories over Fox Chapel and Plum.

Gateway was eliminated from playoff contention by Plum on the last day of the section schedule.

The Mustangs grabbed the third and final playoff spot from the section at 7-5.

Shaler (12-0) and Oakland Catholic (10-2) earned the top two spots.

The Titans were the No. 1 seed for the WPIAL playoffs, but they were upended by No. 8 North Allegheny in the quarterfinals.

Oakland Catholic and Plum were defeated in the first round by No. 5 Norwin and No. 2 Baldwin, respectively.

Shaler placed five seniors and one junior on the first team. Oakland Catholic had two on the first team, while Fox Chapel and Plum (senior hitter Rachel Satira) each had one make the first team.
