How senior Riley Rookus revived the boys volleyball team
In the beginning of freshman year, Riley Rookus was faced with a challenge; the sport he had aspired to be on since he was young, volleyball, was not available. So, ignoring the fact that the school will not provide the program, Rookus, his father Tim Rookus, and friends requested to hold their own practices in the school’s gym that spring from Harrington, which passed. After a few months of holding practices in the Gil Asa Gym, they received the opportunity to have a JV Volleyball team during Rookus’s sophomore year. Now a senior and varsity team MVP, Rookus will be a hitter and setter studying physics at North Central College in Illinois.
