Fall 2022 Sauk Valley Volleyball Team Outlook
After two straight 5th place finishes at the NJCAA National Championships, and six regional titles in the past 8 years - expectations are high for the Sauk Valley Volleyball program. The Skyhawks have reason to be optimistic as they return five players from last year’s 42-3 team, and have added eight talented freshmen.
Returning players include Gabby Jones (Amboy High School), Tiana Tichler (Dixon High School), Addyson Kinn (Dixon High School), Kierra Collins (Sterling High School), and Jaelyn Fitzgerald (Mendota High School).
The 2022 recruiting class looking to make an immediate impact are: Cadence Stonitsch (Rock Falls High School); Nicole Boelens (Polo High School); Mckenzie Hecht (Princeton High School); Reagan Oster (Breese Central High School), Maya Gartin (Princeton High School); Kara Stoecker (Fulton High School)), Mikayla Gazo (Fulton High School), and Jacklin Pabst (Beloit Memorial High School).
The Skyhawk’s will be tested with another tough schedule, as they face top 20 competition at the Southeastern Iowa, Kirkwood, Iowa Central and Parkland tournaments.
