Warren savors one tough regional repeat

The celebration that mattered most went off flawlessly. And there standing in the middle of McHenry's East Campus court with fellow senior captain Allyson Mitchell, without a wobble, was Warren setter Rachel Ziegler. She and Mitchell smiled, cradling the regional championship plaque as parents snapped pictures. "We have so much heart and we want it so bad this year," Ziegler, the three-year varsity player, said after the Blue Devils outlasted the host school 31-29, 25-19 to win the Class 4A McHenry regional Thursday night. It was the second regional title in a row for Warren (24-13), which will play Huntley in Tuesday's 6 p.m. sectional semifinal at Belvidere North.
