Friday night will feature no shortage of juicy matchups, as No. 14 Center Grove and No. 25 Cathedral will battle for the No. 1 ranking in Indiana, No. 2 St. Thomas Aquinas (Fla.) will kick off its 2020 season and No. 8 Ryan (Texas) will return to the field after being forced to postpone its last game because of positive coronavirus tests in the program.
