But the Bulldogs showed why they have big aspirations this season.

  • St. Francis stops Wauconda’s postseason journey Nov 6, 2014 9:49 PM
    The magical ride for Wauconda’s girls volleyball team ended on Thursday night, but the girls on this team wore smiles after their match with powerhouse St. Francis. “I think we are holding back,’’ said Wauconda middle hitter, Sara Sexton. “This is the furthest we’ve gone in 10 years.” Indeed. This Bulldogs team wasn’t even supposed to beat Prairie Division power Lakes. And Wauconda clearly wasn’t likely to knock off 30-game winner Wheaton Academy in the Class 3A sectional opener at Vernon Hills. Yet this Bulldogs team kept on winning. “We found our way,’’ Sexton said. “We got along and played together.” The end of the season came at the hands of 35-4 St. Francis as Wauconda fell 25-14, 25-12. The Spartans advance to a Class 3A supersectional date against Marian Central at 1 p.m. Saturday at Belvidere High School.

  • Wauconda comes back to top Wheaton Academy Nov 4, 2014 9:59 PM
    Upon closer examination, that first set between Wauconda and Wheaton Academy might have been closer than first thought. The Bulldogs tied up favored Wheaton Academy at 7-7, but that was before this 30-game winner from DuPage County blew the doors off the team from Wauconda. And frankly, it wasn’t as close as the 25-18 final score. So it seemed to be just a matter of time before Wauconda’s terrific girls volleyball season would be over. Instead, Wauconda softball star Kayla Wedl began to hit the volleyball hard. And the blocking of Becky Sidlowski and Haley Meyer began to make a difference. Wauconda coach Alison Williams calls her players “The Comeback Kids.” And that held true as the Bulldogs (27-8) stormed back to end Wheaton Academy’s season 18-25, 25-23, 25-21.
