Mt. Savage High State Girls Volleyball Champions, 1983

State Girls Volleyball Champions Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


Mt. Savage High School has won the State Girls Volleyball Championship four times, these being in 1979, 1982, 1983 and 1997. Most recently, Fort Hill High School won the State Girls Volleyball Championship in 2013.

It should be noted that Fort Hill High School also won state volleyball championships in 1950, 1953, and 1954. However, based upon information supplied to us by Mike Mathews of the Cumberland Times-News this was prior to the first Maryland Public Secondary School Athletic Association (MPSSAA) state sanctioned volleyball tournament in 1975. The earlier game was somewhat different from the volleyball we know today, with nine players on each side and no spiking. Both Allegany and Fort Hill High Schools have banners indicating several State (Women's) Volleyball Championships from the 1930s.

The photograph is of the 1983 Mount Savage High School State Girls Volleyball Championship Team.
