About this Article
Wide-eyed, big-smiled, Libertyville senior Kristen Webb didn't wear the look of a girl who just lost her last high-school match. She knew her team left it on the line. Going point-for-point with a program steeped in volleyball pedigree, the Wildcats fell to Mother McAuley 25-22, 25-22 in Saturday's Class 4A third-place match at Redbird Arena. "I'm not upset right now. I'm so proud of these girls," Webb said. "We set a goal at the beginning of the year to get here. From Day 1 of practice we said we wanted to go to state. That just seemed so far off, so far away. We took those steps and made it a reality. I'm not sad."
