Union Local will be back in action on Wednesday inside ‘The Hangar.’

At Shadyside, the Tigers were just as impressive in easily eliminating Steubenville Catholic Central by scores of 25-10, 25-13 and 25-21.

The Tigers led by sophomore Gentry Brown’s 14 kills, three aces, three digs and three blocks. Tory Hendershot and Kylie Jo Baker each had eight kills. Baker also had four aces, while Caroline Mercer had 30 assists. Paige Gorby and Baylee Wach had six and five kills, respectively. Gorby also had four digs and four blocks.
