Athlete of the Week: Josiah Hershberger

Central outside hitter leads the Barons in two victories.

The Manheim Central Barons won two key boys' volleyball matches last week to establish themselves as the team to beat in Section 2.

If Central holds on it would be the program's third straight Section crown.

And the Barons were led last week by a player who has only been around for one of those.

Sophomore Josiah Hershberger had a team-high 15 kills in Central's 3-1 victory over Garden Spot on Tuesday. Hershberger followed it up with 17 kills and five blocks, both team highs, against Conestoga Valley.

The victory over Garden Spot gave the Barons the inside track to the Section title, though the regular season finale at Lancaster Mennonite could be a stumbling block.

Hershberger is second on the team in kills and leads the Barons in blocks.
