Entering matches Thursday at Niles West and Friday at home against Maine West, Glenbrook South's senior outside hitter had helped the Titans girls volleyball team to six straight wins and a 6-1 overall record.

A three-year varsity player, Klemm leads Glenbrook South with 72 kills, 67 serve-receives, 10 service aces and a 95.3 serve percentage, and is fourth on the Titans in digs with 31. In a three-set win over Glenbrook North on April 7, Klemm recorded 18 kills, 10 serve-receives and 6 digs.

 

Committed to Ithaca College in New York, the determined 5-foot-10 Klemm sustained a leg injury that knocked her out of her entire junior season "and came back better than ever," said Titans coach Kelly Dorn.

Next week, Klemm is headed to a national tournament with the MOD 18-and-under club team. "I'm very sad to see her go," Dorn said of the senior, "but I'm excited that Ithaca gets an all-around outside."
