Hinsdale Central High School and Hinsdale South High School girls volleyball, who share a district and identical records at this point in the season, could face each other three times in the next seven days, High School Cube News reports. According to High School Cube News,
"The two volleyball teams from District 86 share part of their name and owned identical records entering this week.
Hinsdale Central and Hinsdale South also could face each other three times within a span of seven days.
South was scheduled to play at Central at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the annual Volley for the Cure match to benefit breast cancer awareness. The two teams then end the regular season at the Lyons Invitational Friday and Saturday.
Once the postseason begins, the two will square off at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Class 4A Hinsdale South Regional semifinals, where Central (11-17) carries the eighth seed and South (11-17) the ninth seed.
A pair of former club teammates will take opposite sides of the court. South senior outside hitter Sarah Garringer and Central senior reserve Kyle Irvin both were members of Sports Performance 16 Blue two years ago.
“It will be good to look at their team,” Garringer said. “It could be a good indication of how the first round could go. It will be cool to see how they compete.”
Irvin missed the early part of the season with a back injury, but recently returned to the Red Devils’ lineup.
The Hornets have extra motivation for the postseason. South won last year’s Volley for the Cure match 25-19, 23-25, 25-15, but Central won the rematch in the sectional final, 15-25, 25-12, 26-18 to end South’s 13-match win streak."
