SouthtownStar’s three things to know

SHARE SouthtownStar’s three things to know

No. 1: De La Salle bears watching. The Meteors (15-6) took Mother McAuley to the limit in the second set of their Sept. 12 match, losing 28-26. Saturday, Carleigh Barringer led them to an impressive second-place at the Elk Grove Invitational with nine kills and 20 digs in a 25-17, 25-22 championship loss to Crystal Lake South. Barringer was the GCAC White Player of the Year in 2012.

No. 2: Stagg is on a roll. The Chargers have put together six victories in their last seven matches after going 4-6 through their first 10. Their latest win was a three-setter over Lincoln-Way West in which Lexi Mantas had a triple-double (16 kills, 10 service points. 10 digs). A tough early schedule should have Stagg ready for Thursday’s SouthWest Suburban Blue opener against visiting Homewood-Flossmoor.

No. 3: Look out for Lemont. The Indians (19-5, 7-1) threw the South Suburban Blue race up for grabs Wednesday by knocking off T.F. South. They had a couple of opposing coaches talking them up during the Rich East Invitational, in which they were 4-1 and beat Andrew, Lyons, Chicago Christian and Lockport. Setters Katy Klein and Shae Millinowisch are working well with hitters Kelly Ferguson, Ali Lund and Cara Howell.
