Varsity This week varsity worked hard in practice preparing for our upcoming matches and first home matches. In the first player of the week for the 2019 season, setter Aurora Korfist represented varsity for her efforts in the Plainfield North Tournament. Without practicing the new lineup that we used in the tournament, she set from the front row and racked up many offensive points and blocks. We are excited to see if our hard work pays off next week when we take on Waubonsie at home on Monday, Proviso at home on Tuesday and Metea on the road on Wednesday.
Freshman This weekend both Freshmen A and B attended the Homewood-Flossmoor Invite as one team. We had a serving percentage of 93%.

Amy lead the team in passing with an average of 2.25. Kai and Evelyn both had 5 blocks. Great job, Hornets!
