Local Sports

STEWARDSON (WCIA) — Windsor-Stewardson-Strasburg junior Megan Schlechte set an IHSA state final match record for kills with 29 in a Class 1A semifinal win over Durand last weekend. The outside hitter totaled 35 for the weekend, earning her a nomination for the WCIA 3 Athlete of the Week. She won the fan vote competition earning 41 percent of the vote. 

“It feels really good to win because of all the support from my fans, coaches and everyone else,” Schlechte. “We lose four but I think we’ll still be pretty good and hopefully we can get back to Redbird next year.”

Schlechte is now in the running for a $500 scholarship we’ll give away later this month to one of the 12 weekly winners.
