Sparks will fly Saturday at North Montgomery as the Chargers and Crawfordsville Athenians meet at volleyball Sectional 25.
The sectional opens with Western Boone and Lebanon Thursday at North Montgomery. North Montgomery is 17-16 and finished 6-1 in the Sagamore Athletic Conference, tying for first with Western Boone and Lebanon. Crawfordsville is 15-15.
"What a cool draw. To draw your county foe, your conference rival," North Montgomery head coach Jodi Webster told The Paper. "You can't get a bigger rivalry coming into the sectional. You're also going to see it in the first game with Boone County in the first match. What a great sectional and what a great atmosphere going on here at North Montgomery."
The Chargers were victorious 3-0 when the teams met at Crawfordsville during the regular season. The win clinched the Montgomery County title for North.
Both schools know that records and previous history is irrelevant when the postseason rolls around.
"We will start tomorrow. North Montgomery's a good team. They have some good players and play good defense. We need to be prepared mentally to have a chance to win Saturday," Crawfordsville head coach Kelly Johnson told The Paper Monday after the team's regular season finale.
Crawfordsville's offense flows through Hannah Hungerford and Kim Hampton, both juniors. Hungerford has 159 kills and a team-high 43 aces on the year.

The teams traded sets to start things off. North Montgomery took the first, 26-24 and Lebanon took the second, 25-22. It was the Chargers' match the rest of the way, but it was never easy. They won the third set 28-26 and the fourth, 25-20.
Lebanon's offense is fast-paced and relies on a lot of aces. North Montgomery made just four receiving errors all night. Brook Karle led the way with 38 serve receives and an outstanding 42 digs. Lindzy Sabens tallied 16 digs and Cortney Kolger had 10. At the net, Ally French finished the night with four blocks.
