(11-14-21) For Belvidere North (39-3) it was a season to remember, most wins in a season with 39, winning the NIC 10 title, won 79 consecutive conference matches, a regional, sectional and super-sectional titles.
Yesterday the Blue Thunder battled to a final 3rd set, a state title was in site…but Nazareth (25-18, 20-25, 25-21) would pull out a 25-21 win. Disappointment…but it is a time to remember for Coach Amanda (Carlson) Hicks and her team. It was quite a year.
Belvidere North’s Katherine Sandt told the Rockford Register-Star after the match –
“We showed all the little girls back home that girls in the cornfield from a small town can get here. No one knew who we were. We may not have come out on top, but we sure as heck left a legacy.”
