Ten years ago last week, Dec. 27, 2001 at the Dundee-Crown Charger Classic, Parker made girls basketball history.

  • Now Benet can call itself elite Nov 13, 2011 1:00 AM

  • Memories of 2008 upset still driving Benet Nov 10, 2011 8:16 PM
    Jenna Jendryk's memories of three years ago have not faded. She comes face-to-face with them every day in practice. Every time the Benet senior walks into the gym she sees the enormous team photo of the 2008 volleyball state runners-up and her older sister Jessica hanging from the wall. It's a reminder of the fine line between champion and second place, the hurt of coming oh so close. “We are playing for that team,” Jendryk said. “Everybody you see in that poster, they worked so hard and came up short. Now we have a chance to be the team that gets it done.”

She joined her first team the next year. “Volleyball is very competitive and I love team sports,” said Crawford, now a senior on Naperville North’s team. “It just seemed the right fit for me.” Crawford and teammate Sami Scroggins seem to be in the minority there.
