  • Benet volleyball suffers first defeat Oct 18, 2014 7:08 PM
    While some schools may be intimidated stepping onto the volleyball court to take on Benet, Mother McAuley is not one of them.

The Macs (31-3), who knocked off Benet last year in the Class 4A finals, won their second straight Autumnfest crown behind the strong play of tourney MVP Kelsey Clark and outside hitter Ryann DeJarld, who had 15 kills in the finals on her way to all-tourney honors.
