Riley Herrmann, a senior, has been playing volleyball since she was in the eighth grade.
But this was the season to remember.
Herrmann helped lead the Foxes to the WPIAL championship match and into the PIAA playoffs.
Now that the season has ended, Hermmann can look toward the future.
She said she has not yet chosen a college, but she wants to major in biology and hopes to play volleyball at the club level.
