GLENDALE — The Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and Notre Dame Academy volleyball teams normally compete toward the beginning of the season in a nonleague match. That’s provided the players an opportunity to learn the strengths and weaknesses of their opposition.
For the first time since 2004, the teams will meet in a playoff match.
The fourth-seeded Tologs will host the Regals in a CIF Southern Section Division I-A quarterfinal match at 5:30 p.m. today. The Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy-Notre Dame Academy winner will meet top-seeded Santa Barbara or Upland in a semifinal match Tuesday at a site to be determined.
Notre Dame Academy swept Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, 25-13, 25-23, 25-15 in a Division IV-AA semifinal contest on Nov. 16, 2004.
