ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles East girls volleyball team turned the tables on Waubonsie Valley, defeating the Warriors, 28-26, 25-21, on Monday night.
Waubonsie was the lone team to beat East (27-6) at Glenbard East’s tournament over the weekend.
“We served aggressively,” East coach Jennie Kull said. “When we were playing them on Saturday, we had game point twice, and we missed our serves. We were actually down most of [Game 1 Monday], and at the end of the match, we really served aggressively, and took them out of their game.”
Megan Schildmeyer had 14 kills, Anne Hughes made 20 digs and Carly Jimenez supplied 26 assists for East.
Kull is just a few days removed from hitting the 500-win mark for her career at the Glenbard East tournament. She coached the Saints to IHSA state titles in 2001 and 2008.
“I’m the kind of person that likes to live in the moment,” said Kull, drawing attention to a crucial conference match tonight against Geneva. “I’m so proud of those accomplishments, but I really do give this kind of thing to the players that have played for me and my assistant coaches. That’s what makes it possible. I’m just as good as my next match. I’ve always been like that, and that’s always been my philosophy as coach.”
Wheaton Academy def. St. Ed, 2-0 (25-18, 25-11): At Elgin, Wheaton Academy’s Sarah McClain had 17 assists and seven digs and Brianna Tellschow had 15 service points for the Warriors (22-10, 7-3 Suburban Christian Conference Gold).
Aurora Christian def. Walther Lutheran, 2-0 (25-15, 25-14): At Aurora, Aurora Christian cruised in SCC Gold play.
