Volleyball, Springstead (4-0) at Central (0-2), 7 p.m. The Bears have struggled early in matches against Nature Coast and Hernando Christian. Under first-year coach Emily Gore, Central has a prime opportunity to regain its footing in Hernando County. Meanwhile, Springstead can see if this season could truly be a breakthrough for second-year coach Darcy Hinton and the Eagles. Springstead has won all its matches 3-1.

Boys golf, Ridgewood (4-1) at Mitchell (5-0), 3 p.m. The Mustangs, fresh off a victory over Wiregrass Ranch, will host the Rams this afternoon. A victory would give the Mustangs the edge heading into the Sunshine Athletic Conference tournament next month at Lake Jovita.

Ridgewood has been a formidable opponent the past two seasons, and there's little doubt the Rams would like to avenge a conference tournament loss that left these teams co-SAC champions.

The Rams have solid golfers in Johnathan Kopsell, Austin Padova and Jeff Koos, each averaging about 37 strokes per nine holes. The problem has been securing a solid No. 4 score. Meanwhile, Mitchell is solid from top to bottom led by Chaz Heinz, Austin Richardson, Josh Winchell and Dominick Dithmer, all averaging below 40 strokes.
