Lakes d. Antioch: Emily Aigner's 7 kills, 3 blocks, 13 digs and 1 ace helped the Eagles win 25-17, 25-15 to improve to 11-1 overall and 3-0 in the North Suburban Prairie.

Shannon Grant also played big at the net for Lakes, recording 4 kills and 5 blocks, while both Haley Halberg and Stephanie Reed (14 assists) served 3 aces.
