CLARION, Pa. – Clarion senior outside hitter Korrin Burns was named the Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association Class 1A Most Valuable Player, and an All-District 9 Class 1A team was announced.
Burns has led the Lady Cats into the PIAA semifinals for the third consecutive year. Clarion will meet Bishop Canevin in the semifinals at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 16, at Slippery Rock High School.
