The area is known for having some dominant outside hitters, but this past week another position outshined the pack.
Both Minooka and Lincoln-Way East had spectacular performances from the rightside. Deservedly so, Minooka's Holly Bonde and East's Molly Hackett are the Herald-News Volleyball Co-Players of the Week.
Bonde had 20 kills in 26 attempts, a .615 hitting percentage and four blocks. Fifteen of those kills were against Oswego and against Joliet Central, the senior was 5-for-5.
Hackett had 22 kills, six aces and 13 digs for the week and helped East top Sandburg and Lincoln-Way Central. The senior put up consistent numbers, earning 11 kills both matches and nearly identical numbers serving and defensively.
