The Sports Performance 18 Elite team won the Junior Volleyball Directors Association national chamionship on Monday in Louisville, Ky., to complete what coach Rick Butler believes is the first undefeated season in the 18 Open division.
Naperville North graduates Colleen Ward and Christine Wu, along with North seniors Julie Chin and Nrithya Sundararaman will now be able to say they went 83-0. Including last season, Sports Performance has a 120-match winning streak.
"We were all saying together, 'Just push out for 25 points because this is the last game we'll all be playing together.," Wu said. "It just hit us that ... we have one game left and we just want it to end well."
