STATE COLLEGE — With every thunderous Cole Brillhart kill, every authoritative block and every eruption of cheer by the Northeastern fans, the Bobcats inched closer and closer to an unprecedented fifth consecutive PIAA Class 2-A state championship on Saturday afternoon.
Then, with one final kill that was struck with such menace by senior Dakoda Hoffman that a Beaver County Christian defender could barely get his hands up in time to protect himself, Northeastern kept its streak alive.
It wasn’t a sweep like the three prior to it, but it was convincingly won in four games, 25-13, 25-22, 21-25, 25-20, with the Bobcats walking off of Penn State’s Rec Hall floor as state champions once more.
