Mercy-Marian rivalry off to a good start

Tuesday was one of the first big nights of the high school volleyball season, as Birmingham Marian and Farmington Hills Mercy met for the first time in a scheduled match against the other.
Granted, the two had already met in tournaments so far this year, but there's something special about gearing up for each other and not worrying about other teams in a tournament format.
If you don't think it's a big deal when the Marlins and Mustangs get together, then you're fooling yourself.
Marian and Mercy met in the Class A state semifinals two years ago and the state championship game last year, so no doubt this right now is the state's best rivalry.
Adding to it was Mercy's five-game win on Tuesday, where the Marlins rallied from a two-games-to-none deficit.
With one more scheduled meeting in the regular season and likely matchups in both the Catholic League and state tournaments, the state's current best volleyball rivalry should only heat up even more.
