Boys' volleyball wins state
Boys' volleyball claimed the state title on Saturday, June 1. The team defeated Minooka in the quarterfinals, then faced Oak Park-River Forest and won in the state semifinal. They went on to win over Glenbard West in the state championship. Marist is the first school to win both the girls' and boys' state volleyball titles in the same, and they did under the same coach-Jordan Vidovic. They will host the CCL/ESCC all-star game Monday, June 3 at 7 p.m.
Earlier in the playoffs, the team defeated Homewood-Flossmoor and Andrew in the regional and Lincoln Way Central in the sectional semi. After a decisive win over Lincoln Way East (25-14, 25-11) in the sectional championship, Marist's boys' volleyball punched its ticket for the IHSA state tournament.
This marks the RedHawks' first appearance at state since 2010 when the team won the state title. The team's season results can be found here.
