KANELAND—For Todd Weimer’s Kaneland Lady Knights volleyball crew, there weren’t better opportunities to view the roster’s progress than at the usual Wheaton North Tournament stop and a trip to Burlington Central.

When the dust settled, KHS viewed a 5-2 record after winning three of five matches in Falcon-land, and the first win for coach Weimer over BC on Tuesday by a final of 25-18, 25-27, 25-18.

The action of Aug. 24 began with a 25-14, 13-25, 25-23 loss to the Hilltoppers of Glenbard West, but the Lady Knights rallied with a 25-13, 25-21 sweep of the host school.

At the end of day one, Katy Dudzinski had 36 attacks, followed closely by Grace Fabrizius with 30 attacks. Dudzinski had 22 kills, while Fabrizius had nine.

On Saturday, the Lady Knights first took care of Oak Forest, 25-14, 24-26, 25-23, then swept St. Viator by a final of 25-11, 25-23.

Glenbard West defeated Kaneland in the finale by a 25-21, 21-25, 25-14 final.

Dudzinski finished Saturday with eight blocks and 43 kills, while Ashley Prost contributed 51 assists. Teammate Kylie Siebert had three aces on the afternoon.
