Antioch, Lakes go on the attack vs. cancer
Call it another successful "Volley For The Cure" volleyball match between the Antioch and Lakes girls Wednesday night.
Antioch captured a 25-18, 25-20 decision in North Suburban Prairie Division action. A third set was played for fun, and Lakes won that.
The annual "Cure" match is intended to raise awareness of breast cancer and raise dollars.
Amanda Spera had 5 kills and 5 blocks for Antioch, while Sam Falco added 3 kills and 6 blocks. The Sequoits also received contributions from Linnea Lubkeman (2 kills, 3 blocks), Marissa Grant (16 assists), Abbi McIlhany (3 kills, 3 blocks), Madeline Johnson (3 kills), Meranda Masse (4 aces), Hannah Skoog (2 aces) and Ashley Briggs (2 aces).
"It was a great match between two programs that have learned to compete and put on a great match for the fans, while raising money for a great cause," Antioch coach Glen Heitman said. "Special thanks to Coach (Antioch assistant coach Jamie) Atkinson, (former Lakes coach) Carla Thompson and all the parents who worked very hard to make this a special night. It was great to see student bodies from both schools there to support their teams, showing great enthusiasm and good sportsmanship. It amazes me to see what started out as an idea from Carla Thompson to try a Cure game six years ago and now has turned into an event with a life of its own getting bigger and better each year."
