Flinn tops top seeds to win IESA girls volleyball regional

ROCKFORD – The Flinn Falcons’ eighth grade volleyball team knocked off the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds Wednesday night to win the IESA Cass 8-4A regional title.

Flinn, the No. 3 seed, edged second-seeded Eisenhower, 25-21, 25-21, and then rallied to beat top-seeded RESA, 22-25, 25-18, 25-22.

The win advances the Falcons to Monday night’s sectional final at Barrington Middle School. Flinn will play the winner of tonight’s match between Vernon Hills Hawthorn South and Arlington Heights South.

Wednesday’s results were not a huge upset. Flinn tied with RESA for first place in the RRAC South Division with 5-2 records and the Falcons topped RESA to win the postseason tournament.
