    Do yourself a favor and attend the next home volleyball game. Pay the $4 at the door and be thoroughly entertained for the next hour or so. The level of talent and excitement taking place in that gym right now is amazing! You’ll be glad you did.

    It’s great to see the talent level increasing in Kaneland for girl’s volleyball. I have coached at the club level for the last 10 years and can attest that the Great Lakes Region and Illinois are one of the most competitive in the country. Get your girl’s involved early in club volleyball, everyone will benefit. Great story.
