Caitlin has a .359 hitting efficiency which leads the team. She has played in all 24 matches thus far and she is #20 in the nation for solo blocks.

“Caitlin has been a major part of the team’s success so far, ” said head coach Kyle McCall. “She graduated early from Huntley High School and is taking five classes during season, including a lab. She is one of our hardest working, easy-going student-athletes on our team. We value her opinion and look forward to seeing her growth within our program. There are big things ahead for Caitlin.”

Director of Athletics Karen Wiley said: “We are always happy and proud to have local student-athletes choose to be part of our ever-growing and dominating volleyball program and athletic department. It is important to us to empower our local talent to the next level academically and athletically. With quiet confidence and class, Anna has already proven to be an awesome addition to our team and department.”
