Congratulations, Amanda Holsen: Volleyball Player Of The Week

Scary, like a monster, good. That’s how good Stevenson senior outside hitter Amanda Holsen was last weekend in leading the Patriots to the Peggy Scholten Classic Championship, which was hosted by Fremd and Conant high schools.

Holsen, a Columbia recruit, totaled 74 kills over 5 matches and was named the Lake County News-Sun/Chicago Tribune player of the week.

“(Amanda) had a monster tournament,” Stevenson girls volleyball coach Tim Crow told the Daily Herald after the Patriots secured the title. “I think our kids are understanding their roles better and doing their jobs better so that takes a lot of pressure off Amanda. She can still be herself but now she doesn’t have to worry about another position besides her.

Thanks to a match-high 16 kills by Holsen in the championship, Stevenson swept St. Charles East, 25-22, 25-23. The Patriots won all five of their matches in the tournament in straight sets.

Son of Adlai E. Stevenson dies at 90

Former U.S. Sen. Adlai E. Stevenson III, the fourth generation of an iconic Illinois Democratic political family to hold public office and who lost the closest governor’s race in state history, died Monday in his Chicago home. He was 90. Stevenson, the namesake of a great-grandfather who served as 23rd vice president of the United States and a father who served as Illinois’ 31st governor and twice ran as the Democratic nominee for president, represented Illinois in the U.S. Senate from 1970 through 1981.
