Mother McAuley volleyball coach Jen DeJarld is, by her own admission, a risk-taker. In 2007, she made some radical changes during the season by bringing up some junior varsity players. They went on to help the Mighty Macs to the state finals. “I don’t know that we had much business being in the state finals,” DeJarld said. “I coached my butt off … ]]>

<![CDATA[ Girls Volleyball: Mallory Salis provides leadership, talent for Marist ]]>
It’s not easy making a varsity roster at Marist, especially as a freshman. Mallory Salis said she was surprised enough when she showed up in summer 2009 and was told to report to the junior varsity. She was something more than surprised when, halfway through the season she was brought up to the varsity. “I’ve got to be honest,” she said. “I … ]]>

<![CDATA[ Girls Volleyball: Injured Morgan Reardon’s true grit admirable against St. Francis ]]>
Joliet Catholic’s Morgan Reardon could not believe it was happening. Minutes before the biggest match of her high school career, her body was failing her. Warming up for the Glenbard South Sectional final against St. Francis, Reardon went through the warmup line, smashed a set from Mallory Mangun and landed awkwardly on her left ankle. Something wasn’t right. “I was thinking ‘How … ]]>

<![CDATA[ Girls Volleyball: Mother McAuley downs Libertyville, takes third in Class 4A ]]>
It’s a process recovering when opportunity knocks and you don’t answer the door. Mother McAuley did a pretty good job of processing after losing to New Trier in Friday night’s Class 4A semifinal. “Their hearts were broken last night. We felt sorry for ourselves last night, slept on it, had a good practice this morning and we were ready to go,” coach … ]]>

<![CDATA[ Girls Volleyball: Maddie, Molly Haggerty shine in St Francis 3A title win ]]>
NORMAL – As long as there’s a Haggerty in the house, St. Francis coach Peg Kopec stands a pretty good chance of passing Mother McAuley’s Nancy Pedersen for the most state titles by a coach. Freshman Molly Haggerty had 12 kills, junior Maddie Haggerty added seven kills and McKenna Kelsay orchestrated the Spartans’ offense with 27 assists as St. Francis defeated Richmond-Burton … ]]>

<![CDATA[ Girls Volleyball: Benet overcomes slow start, advances to state final ]]>
Up a game and leading 15-10 in the second, Libertyville appeared to have No. 1-ranked Benet on the ropes. But appearances can be deceiving. Benet went on a 9-0 run to take a 19-15 lead and earn the second game, then used a 10-1 run in Game 3 to build an 18-7 lead on its way to a 20-25, 25-21, 25-13 victory … ]]>

Normal, Ill. — Richmond-Burton had a little luck, and just too much Ali Frantti for Jacksonville. The Penn State recruit had 22 kills and Richmond-Burton fought off two match points in Game 2 as the Rockets defeated Jacksonville 19-25, 27-25, 25-22 in a Class 3A state semifinal at Redbird Arena on Friday. Richmond-Burton (37-4) trailed 24-22 in Game 2 when a kill … ]]>

NORMAL – The winds of change weren’t very subtle when they blew into Redbird Arena at the start of Set 2 in the Class 4A semifinal match Friday between Mother McAuley and New Trier. New Trier, a team back on its heels and not following its master plan, took the Mighty Macs by storm. “We didn’t come out the way we wanted … ]]>

<![CDATA[ Girls Volleyball: Harvest Christian falls short of state semis again ]]>
To Harvest Christian’s credit, there was no whining. There could have been some, because losing to a team that has a key 6-foot-3 player allowed by the IHSA to start her season competing at the sectional level after transfering to a private school from a public school always invites plenty of questions. But after Harvest Christian suffered a season-ending 18-25, 25-19, 25-18 … ]]>

<![CDATA[ Girls Volleyball: Q-and-A with Lincoln-Way East’s Marissa De Groot ]]>
Volleyball or basketball? Which one is your favorite? I like both for very different reasons, and that’s why I kept playing. With volleyball, I love the energy and the momentum. With basketball, it’s super-aggressive, and I love the hustle. Do you have a favorite moment from volleyball season? Winning the McAuley Preview was phenomenal. That was a huge tournament for us and … ]]>
