The AML opens divisional play this week after three weeks of AML North vs AML South. The 2-1 Kane Wolves will host the 3-0 Brockway Rovers on Friday night in what appears to be a contest of two closely matched teams.
The Rovers have dominated the first three teams on their schedule, defeating Cameron County in their season opener by a score of 42-8, then beating Otto-Eldred 42-6, and last week jumping out to an early 35-7 lead to Sheffield before sending the Wolverines home with a 35-21 loss.
JOHNSONBURG â€“ The Kane Lady Wolves gave the home team fits Thursday night in the serve-receive statistics category in a 3-1 (25-21, 25-17, 21-25, 25-12) win over the Johnsonburg Ramettes.
Kane had little trouble in the first two games against the Ramettes before a hiccup in the third game sidetracked the visitors. The Lady Wolves regrouped quickly, however, to clinch the decisive fourth game for the win.
Kaneâ€™s seventh- and eighth-grade girlsâ€™ basketball teams both won in their home openers on Wednesday. The seventh-grade girls won in the first game of the afternoon, defeating the young Lady Wolverines by a score of 14-10, followed by the eighth-graders' 32-3 drubbing of Sheffield.
Coach Mary Espinâ€™s seventh-grade squad evened their record at 1-1 with the win. Trinity Clark led Kane with six points, followed by Amber Carlson with four. Gina Marconi and Mackenzie Witherell chipped in two points each for the Lady Wolves.
Kane school administrators are planning to develop and implement strategies to increase parent involvement in the education of their children.
One of the proposed initiatives calls for the creation of a "parent advisory committee" to work with school officials.
Ideas for increasing parent involvement in Kane schools were discussed Thursday at a meeting of the school board's Curriculum Committee.
Dr. Maryann Anderson, superintendent of the Kane Area School District, said "we're trying to create more interest" among parents.
