  • Fairfield’s in the future for Schaumburg’s Akinola Oct 20, 2014 5:09 PM
    When Oyinkan Akinola made the trip to Connecticut to visit Fairfield University this past July, she was quite a distance from her home in the northwest suburbs. “But when I was there, it felt like home,” said the Schaumburg senior who is the leading attacker for the Saxons with her explosive arm swing. Fairfield will eventually become her home after she graduates from Schaumburg next May. The 5-foot-10 senior committed this summer to the Stags’ Division I volleyball program and coach Todd Kress, who has an overall record of 328-239 and was the second youngest coach in NCAA history with 200 career wins. Kress previously was the head coach at Buffalo and Florida State.

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.

  • Tri-Cities volleyball teams prepare for stacked sectional Oct 15, 2014 10:11 AM
    Perhaps the Illinois High School Association knew exactly what it was doing when the decision came to shuffle a few girls volleyball sectional tournament alignments this season. Maybe the decision was just by chance — call it the luck of the draw. Whatever the case, the upcoming Class 4A Bartlett sectional field promises to be one of the most competitive in recent memory. I say it borders on almost being unfair.
