After enjoying one of the most successful regular season campaigns in school history, the Pirates added to the accolades with a 25-21, 25-20 victory over Glenbrook North to bring home a regional title for the first time since 2010.
After having one of their worst performances against Glenbrook North during their last meeting on April 17th, Deerfield put together one of their most complete performances of the season in the rematch, beating GBN 25-22, 17-25, 25-17 to pull level with the Spartans atop the CSL North.
Despite being plagued by injuries to star middle Joe D’Attomo, and starting setter Ben Wiegand, New Trier shook off a slow start to beat rivals Glenbrook North, 23-25, 25-20, 25-15 in what could be a preview of the sectional final.
Ironically enough, GBN’s 25-22, 25-19 victory over Deerfield to put them atop the CSL North happened to fall on tax deadline day. Arguably the only event as consistent as the GBN boys volleyball program over the past 20 years.
With conference play beginning this week, we take a stab at predicting what the final standings of the CSL North will look like.
The two powerhouse programs faced off for GBN’s home opener where the hosts came back after a poor opening set to beat the Tigers 22-25, 25-19, 25-14 to improve to 3-3 on the season.
