Mackenzie Dagostino and the Buccaneers have the pieces in place for another outstanding season. They can gauge their readiness at Friday’s matchup with Academy of the Holy Names.

The week ahead

A look at the week's top prep events across the county:

• Volleyball, Durant at Bloomingdale, 7 tonight: Both teams looking to rebuild after disappointing seasons. They are two of the most successful east county programs.

• Swimming, Sickles, AHN, Jesuit at Holy Names, 6 tonight: A great meet all around, the highlight might be Sickles' Katie Cook and AHN's Molly Sheridan battling in the girls sprint events.

• Girls golf, Plant vs. Durant at River Hills, 3 today: On a prep golf scale, this is like Florida and Georgia playing in Week One of the football season.

• Volleyball, Plant at Durant, 7:30 Wednesday: The three-time defending champion Panthers start their regular season against the Cougars. Plant appears ready after preseason wins at Venice and Fort Myers.

• Swimming, Wharton vs. Newsome at Fish Hawk Aquatic, 6 Thursday: Two of the top boys swim teams face off in a key dual for both squads.

• Girls golf, Steinbrenner vs. Sickles at Heritage Harbor, 3 Thursday: The Gryphons' best player (Alex Milan) and coach from the 2008 team now are Warriors. Sense a rivalry here?

• Volleyball, Berkeley Prep at Holy Names, 6:30 Friday: The Buccaneers are loaded and ready for another Class 3A state run. This will be the third of three district games this week, and their toughest challenge yet.
