KANELAND—It was a productive year for Kaneland volleyball, much like last year.

But this year, the Lady Knights can not only boast 38 wins in the last two seasons, but can now trumpet a conference MVP in its ranks.

Kylie Siebert, a senior, who provided stability at the libero position, was voted by coaches to be the NIB-12 East division MVP.

“It’s an honor that we were able to have both Kylie and Katy make the All Conference Team,” KHS coach Todd Weimer said. “And another step further, Kylie is our first All Conference, MVP, Player of the Year. Most MVP’s are setters or hitters and the liberos and smaller players get overlooked. Kylie has done a tremendous job of laying everything on the court.”

Kaneland also welcomed senior Katy Dudzinski to the first team. Dudzinski is bound for the Wichita State University volleyball program.

In the east, the Lady Barbs of DeKalb produced the most first-team nominees with three.

KHS was also happy to add senior Grace Fabrizius and junior Lauren Banbury to the honorable mention list.

In the West, LaSalle-Peru senior Sammi Herron earned the MVP tag.
