Fall 2021 Sauk Valley Volleyball Team Outlook
After a 3-1 showing and a 5th place finish at the NJCAA National Tournament - expectations are high for the Sauk Valley Volleyball program.
The Skyhawk’s return 4 players from last year’s team, all of whom will be relied upon heavily: setter Audra Goff from Rock Falls, pin hitter Juliana Rotella from Dixon, All-American outside hitter Kiley Sanders from Sterling Newman, and libero Maddie Sands from Rock Falls. The team will get a huge boost with the addition of Iowa State transfer Michal Willman from Faith Christian.
The Skyhawk’s have reason to be optimistic with the addition of six freshmen: Gabby Jones comes to Sauk Valley from Amboy; Jaelyn Fitzgerald is a 4-year varsity player from Mendota; Kierra Collins from state championship teams at Sterling; Tiana Tichler and Addyson Kinn from Dixon and Hannah Adams from Geneseo.
The 2021 Skyhawk’s will be tested with another tough schedule, as they face top 20 competition at the OWT, SCC, Kirkwood, Lincoln Land and Parkland tournaments.
