The Week that Was: Chelsea, a junior setter who is in her third season as a varsity starter, was instrumental in a perfect 3-0 run for the Golden Panthers.

Monday, Harvey had 35 assists and seven digs as PJP topped Villa Maria Academy 3-0 in a matchup of the top two ranked teams in District 1-3A. That key win helped the Golden Panthers leapfrog the Hurricanes in the district standings to their current position atop the ratings.

Harvey continued her magic Wednesday with 35 assists and four aces as PJP swept PAC rival Upper Merion 3-0 before blanking Pottsgrove 3-0 Thursday to round out the perfect week.

“Chelsea is one of the hardest working players we have in our gym,” veteran PJP coach Ryan Sell said of Harvey, who has stuffed the stat sheet with 133 assists, 8 kills, 8 aces and 25 digs in her last three outings. “She does a really nice job running our offense even when we are out of system.”

Harvey and PJP host Boyertown Wednesday night (7 pm) in a pivotal matchup of PAC unbeatens.
