The low point in a roller coaster junior season for New Lenox resident Jillian Gray came when she had to tell Joliet Catholic coach Christine Scheibe that she would not likely return to the Angels’ lineup this season.

The high point? That’s easy. That came this past weekend, when Gray led the Angels in kills in both games at the state finals in Normal.

Joliet Catholic finished second in Class 3A, and Gray was a big reason why after she persevered through a frustrating ankle injury to get back on the court.
