Resilient and athletic even in season-ending defeat, Khaila Donaldson bounced to her feet immediately after a kill by Lake Zurich's Mallory Parsons flattened Stevenson's star and ended Thursday night's Class 4A Conant sectional final. "It was a great swing by her," Donaldson said after No. 1 Lake Zurich outlasted the third-seeded Patriots 25-23, 25-22 in Hoffman Estates. "It was a missed block by us. That was happening throughout the match. It just so happened that (Parson's kill) was the game point. It was just another error that we made."
