Sports Connection

Stillman Valley’s postseason run has been extended into another week. The Cardinals won the 3A Kaneland Sectional Thursday night by defeating Kaneland 55-51.

Stillman Valley advances to the Bureau Valley Super-Sectional Monday against Morton.

In the Kaneland game the Cardinals rallied from an early eight point deficit.

“It’s kind of what our postseason has been. You know that’s all season long,” says head coach Bobby Mellon. “We’ve had a lot of close games but these girls never gave up.”

“We knew by having all this pressure we’ve been really pushing it, and at halftime we got the message that we need to come out and keep it rolling,” says Stillman senior Macy Weaver.

“It’s amazing! I’m so excited!,” says senior Alexa Ballard about the Sectional Championship. “I love my team! Kaneland was a great team, and we just came out to play.”
