Splitt among four UIS volleyball signees

Alli Splitt helped Cary-Grove High School to a third-place finish at the Class 4A state volleyball tournament last weekend and is one of four prep players who have signed a letter of intent during the early signing period to play volleyball for the University of Illinois Springfield.

Splitt, a 6-foot-1 middle blocker, led Cary-Grove with 317 kills and 168 total blocks.

Five-foot-11 setter/hitter Julia O’Malley holds Belvidere’s all-time kills record. She had 140 kills, 99 digs and 40 assists senior year.

Erie High’s Rachel Cobert led the team in kills as a junior and senior. The 5-10 middle hitter was first in blocks three of her four seasons.

Jailyn Borum, a 5-10 outside hitter, collected 290 kills, 229 digs, 75 aces and 17 solo blocks for Sterling High this year.
