Congratulations to Glenbrook United White for winning gold in volleyball at Harlem H.S. in Machesney Park over the weekend. On Saturday, GU White beat the Jacksonville Blue Thunder in the semi-finals. On Sunday, GU White beat the Freeport Tornadoes, defeating both teams in straight sets to win the gold. This is the 3rd straight state gold medal for GU White. This is a very rare feat, and congrats to all the GU athletes who practiced over the summer. Thank you to all the athletes, parents, and coaches Williams and Petty for making this volleyball season another great success (GU Gold won area silver and GU white winning area and state gold). The team served extremely well, but the tremendous improvement of this team to defend (return serve) was impressive and key to our success.
GU White team members are: Bobby Cameron, Alexander Durham, Maddy Halamaj, Ryan Manso, Sean Manso, Katie McManus, Jacob Rosenberg, Karmesha White, and Michael Young
