Mokena Junior High’s seventh-grade girls volleyball team made a memorable run to a sectional championship and qualified for state for the first time since 2006.
The Meteors never got their chance to play at state, though, as the Illinois Elementary School Association canceled the tournament amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“We’re trying to stay positive about the situation, but it is disappointing,” Mokena coach Crystal Grimes said.
Mokena was set to play Taylorville Junior High in a Class 4A state quarterfinal match Friday, March 16, at Kingsley Junior High in Normal.
