With the fall sports season quickly approaching, LCSN wanted to take a look at when the three powerhouses play each other this season as the three teams do a round robin throughout the season.

August

Aug. 20 - Mercy at Sacred Heart, 7 p.m. - These two rivals will battle. It’s a possible state tournament matchup and it’s almost guaranteed to be a No. 2 vs. No. 3 matchup.

Aug. 29 - Sacred Heart at Assumption, 7 p.m. - These two teams are the top dawgs in the Seventh Region year-in and year-out. This year is certain to be the same and this is the first chance to see one of the top three programs battle.

September

Sep. 4 - Mercy at Assumption, 7 p.m. - Round one.It’s a rematch of last year’s state championship game and a possible state tournament game this year if both teams survive their regional tournament. Expect this to be a No. 1 vs. No. 2 showdown.

Sep. 7 & 8 - The Louisville Volleyball Invitational Tournament - The top teams from around the country will fight for an LVIT title at the Ohio Valley Volleyball Center. It’s sure to be a battle.

Sep. 22 - Assumption at Sacred Heart, 5 p.m. - Rematch time. It’s the last chance for each team to battle. The next time these two teams would see each other, a trip to the state tournament will be on the line.

Sep. 26 - Sacred Heart at Mercy, 7 p.m. - It’s a rematch as these two rivals who will both likely be in the top-three tuneup and fine tune their skills before postseason play starts a few weeks later.

October

Oct. 4 - Assumption at Mercy, 7 p.m. - Round two. These two rivals will play in the final week of the regular season. By then we will know whether or not these two teams could play in the state title game or earlier in the state tournament.
