(Sugar Grove, IL.) – After playing six matches over the past weekend in the rugged Owens (OH) Community College Tournament, a tired Waubonsee Community College volleyball team found a way pull out a hard fought, four-set victory over Aurora University’s Junior Varsity. The Chiefs prevailed in game one 25-17 before Aurora bounced back to win game two 28-26. Waubonsee regained the upper hand by winning the third game 25-20. The Chiefs then edged the Spartans 26-24 in a thrilling fourth game to clinch the match.

Waubonsee is next in action this coming Thursday, Sept. 8 when they travel to McHenry County College for a pivotal Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference (ISCC) match.
