Girls volleyball: Stevenson's Radtke terminates 1000th kill
Stevenson senior volleyball player Jori Radtke hit a milestone on Saturday at Maine East.
During the Patriots' semifinal match against Niles West, the Northern Illinois-bound outside hitter slammed the 1,000th kill of her four-year varsity career.

Radtke's efforts helped Stevenson (19-2) finish 4-1 in Maine East's Demon Invite. After losing to Niles West 25-16, 25-19, despite Radtke's 13 kills, the Patriots beat Warren 25-22, 25-19 for third place. Radtke led the way again, totaling 16 kills and 6 digs. Sophie Sorenson had 6 kills and 2 aces. Chloe Robinson registered 2 aces and 6 digs, Taylor Erickson served 3 aces, and Alex Cuc dished out 18 assists.
