One of the most successful seasons in Fox Chapel girls volleyball history came to a close Tuesday night, as the Foxes dropped a 3-2 decision to District 6 champion State College in the first round of the PIAA Class AAA playoffs at Central Cambria High School.

The WPIAL runner-up Foxes, making their first appearance in the state playoffs, ended the season 18-5.

Fox Chapel led, 2-1, before losing the final two games.

“Overall, I think it was a rewarding season; We have never been to states before and, if anything, we can chalk it up as a learning experience,” Fox Chapel coach Sara D'Angelo said. “I think the girls, even though they are upset about the loss, are happy about what they accomplished this season.”

Goaltender Cameron Langham stopped 29 of 32 shots and was dominant for most of the second and third periods.

Craig Mazzotta contributed a goal and an assist for Mars (2-1).
