Volleyball season ends, sends two players to All-Region Team, All-Conference Team

The Joliet Junior College women’s volleyball team ended their season with a loss at the Region IV Semifinal Tournament Semifinal hosted by Harper College.

The ladies were 21-14 for the season overall while earning a spot in national rankings twice. It was a widely successful season for the Lady Wolves volleyball team.

The ladies ended up being the fourth seed in the Region IV Tournament and hosted number five Elgin. In the first game of the Region IV Quarterfinal Tournament against Elgin, the Wolves dominated in the sets and came out victorious.

Freshman Shea Kieldyk lead the team with 12 kills while Sophomore Isabella Cosentino lead with 26 assists that game. Kieldyk had 230 kills overall for the season.
In the Region IV Semifinal, the Lady Wolves went up against tough rival number one see Rock Valley College. Despite their efforts, they lost in the sets 0-3, eliminating them.

Sophomore Cuay Whitener had a solid nine kills while Kieldyk was right behind Whitener with seven kills. Cosentino had 18 assists for the team as well.

Whitener and Cosentino were named to the All-Region IV Team and the NC4 All-Conference in the North Central Community College Conference in October shortly before the end of their official season.

Whitener is an outside hitter and had a total of 394 kills for her offense and 391 digs for her defense for the season. Setter Cosentino led the Wolves with 20 double-doubles and has 930 assists overall for the team. Both performed exceptionally well this season and are well-deserving of their accomplishments thus far.

Despite their tournament loss, the girl were dedicated and proved themselves to be tough competition under first-year head coach Dan Brown. They will prepare for next year and hope to improve even more.
