The Kane Lady Wolves ended their season with a loss to Bradford in a three-game sweep, giving them a 7-9 record. Â
In the first set, the Lady Wolves struggled to gel as a team, allowing Bradford to take a huge 17-0 lead before getting a point.
â€śThe girls were just sort of out of sync in this opening set," said Kane head varsity volleyball coach Judy Kessler. "No matter what they did, it was a struggle. You have games like that and unfortunately when itâ€™s against a strong team like Bradford, theyâ€™re going to take advantage of it and score a lot of points.â€ť
The Chestnut Street Elementary School may be closed, but it still is serving children in the Kane School District.
Three separate childrenâ€™s programs are operating at the former school in Kane. The rent charged for the space is helping the school district cover utility and maintenance costs on what otherwise would be an empty building.
The school closed following the 2009-10 school year. The new Kane Elementary School opened in September 2010.
Although the Chestnut Street school no longer has classes, it still is bustling with children.
