A few big events highlight this week’s sporting schedules for the local teams. From the Lexington Catholic Cup in girls soccer, to a showdown of unbeaten (in Kentucky competition) boys soccer teams, to the biggest cross country meet in this region, here’s a look ahead at what’s happening this week in sports.

The Trinity/Valkyrie Inivitational Cross Country Meet will bring together thousands of runners from elementary levels (on Friday) to high school competition (on Saturday). Schools from several states will run in the 58th edition of this great event.

On the volleyball courts, the state and nation’s No. 1 ranked Mercy Jaguars will travel to northern Kentucky to play the state’s No. 2 and nation’s No. 18 team Notre Dame Pandas. The game will feature some of the top talent in the state including Mercy’s Courtney Crable (Auburn commit) and Notre Dame’s Heidi Thelen (Penn State commit) and Elly Ogle (LSU commit).

Mercy probably will not have dynamic outside hitter Meridith Jewell available as she’s recovering from a major cut on her right knee that required 15 stitches. Also, Assumption and Sacred Heart travel to Las Vegas to play in the nation’s top prep volleyball tournament, the Durango Classic.

In football, St. Xavier travels to Cincinnati to play Archbishop Moeller, a stern test for the Tigers. DeSales will look to improve its record to 5-0 as they host Shawnee (at Iroquois) and Holy Cross hosts Valley. Trinity has the weekend off.
