Morgan Reardon, an outside hitter for the Angels, plans to continue her volleyball career at Loyola University.
Goals the rest of the way?
We’re playing one game at a time and playing like it’s your last, because it might be. The obvious goal is to win state. That’s been on our mind since Day 1. At first, it was something you dream about, and now it can be a reality.
Who would you love to play in the state finals?
I’d like to play Wheaton St. Francis. It always feels like the state championship to me. It’d be cool to play them downstate.
Improve your game with a snap of your finger. What do you pick?
I would say my blocking. Sometimes I struggle, kind of floating everywhere. If I could be an amazing blocker one day, that’s what I’d pick.
What is the best Halloween candy?
That’s the easiest question there is. That would be Trolli Sour Gummy Worms. I’m obsessed. I could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner — and as a matter of fact, I do.
What’s your all-time coolest Halloween costume?
My best was when I was a blow-up toucan. I would inflate it, but when I sat down for class I had to deflate.
Who is your celebrity prom date?
Oh, come on. Ryan Gosling for sure.
You’re on a deserted island with one food you never run out of. What do you pick?
Chocolate chip ice cream from Baskin Robbins. I’m a very specific person.
What will you remember most about Joliet Catholic?
I’ll definitely remember the friends I’ve made here, in and out of volleyball. The coaches, the teachers, friends, everything.
