Volleyball stops Raiders, loses to Sycamore
by Mike Slodki
On Thursday, things were looking dire for Lady Knights volleyball (4-5, 2-1 Western Sun Conference) against host Glenbard South.
Having already dropped one game by a 25-15 score, the Lady Knights struck back and won two in a row to take the match, 25-18, 25-13.
The Lady Knights took home a victory thanks in large part to the performance of Katy Dudzinski. Dudzinski put forth 10 kills and two blocks in the affair.
â€œWe came out against Rochelle with a lot of force and energy,â€ Dudzinski said. â€œWe werenâ€™t having fun in the first game, so in the second and third game we came back and really exploded. It was all about getting back to how we can play.â€
â€œItâ€™s a little bit sweeter when youâ€™re down after one game and come back to win the last two,â€ coach Todd Weimer said. â€œThe girls are super excited, and we canâ€™t wait for next week.â€
Jessica Lubic also had 22 assists and five kills.
Against Sycamore, Kaneland lost 25-23, 25-19. Lubic added 15 assists and two aces.
In the Kaneland JV Invite, the Lady Knights finished fifth, earning a 25-8, 25-9 win over Elmwood Park. Geneva finished first.
The varsity Knights look to beat Batavia at home on Thursday, Sept. 17, and host Geneva on Tuesday, Sept. 22.
