Volleyball drops match to GS

By on October 8, 2009

While Lady Knights volleyball continues to look strong against formidable Western Sun Conference teams, there still is room for improvement.

On Tuesday, Kaneland lost a home battle with Glenbard South by a final of 27-25, 25-21. Despite Jessica Lubic’s 12 assists and two blocks, the Lady Knights are now 7-8, with a 5-4 mark in Western Sun Conference play.

Abby VanDerHeyden added three kills for the effort.

On Sept. 26, Kaneland hosted freshmen and sophomore volleyball teams at Kaneland Harter Middle School in Sugar Grove in lower-level tournaments.

The freshmen Lady Knights placed third with a 1-2 record. Their lone win came against Burlington Central in a 23-25, 25-17, 15-13 match. Previously, Kaneland lost to Dekalb, 25-18, 25-11, and to Rosary 25-14, 25-20.

DeKalb, with a 3-0 record, took the invite over Rosary with a 25-9, 25-13 win.

The Kaneland sophomores finished fourth with a 1-2 record, but managed a 25-15, 25-15 win over DeKalb. DeKalb’s 25-22 win over Burington Central sealed its championship.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, Oct. 15, KHS volleyball hosts Dig Pink Night-Volley for the Cure. With the Lady Knights facing Geneva, the freshman “A” and “B” matches begin at 5 p.m. in the West Guym, while the sophomore match starts at 5 p.m. in the main gym.

Volleyball skills contests begin after the sophomore match, and the varsity match begins at 6:30 p.m. Pink volleyball shirts will be on sale for $10. A silent auction will also take place, with all profits from the evening benefiting the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
