Kelsay, Ballard make college volleyball plans

A pair of area volleyball players have decided their college futures.

St. Francis senior setter McKenna Kelsay, who helped lead the Spartans to the IHSA Class 3A state title, has committed to Illinois, St. Francis announced Friday. Kelsay's older sister, Kristen, also plays volleyball in the Big Ten at Michigan State.

Kelsay, who dished 921 assists and 413 service points as a senior, was the Suburban Christian Conference's Girls Volleyball Player of the Year.

Meanwhile, St. Charles East senior Caitlyn Ballard has decided to continue her volleyball career at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Fla.

Ballard had options to play at larger schools but intends to follow in her family's aeronautical tradition. Her father, Michael, and older brother, Joshua, are both air traffic controllers working at Chicago Air Route Traffic Control Center in Aurora.
