HARDIN — Calhoun High School senior Delani Klaas will continue her volleyball career as a Lady Blue.
The former Brussels product decided to continue her career at Illinois College in Jacksonville at a signing event this week. Klass was instrumental in Calhoun’s volleyball squad in attaining a school record for wins.
Klaas’ career has a long list of impressive accomplishments in three seasons. Her freshman season was cut short as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes all-tournament selections in the Waverly, Carlinville, New Berlin, Roxana, and Civic Memorial tournaments in the past two seasons. She is also a two-time tournament MVP at the Roxana Tournament. Even further, she is a three-time academic all-conference selection not just in the Southern Division of the Western Illinois Valley Conference, but also the entire conference at large.
In addition to shining on the volleyball court, Delani is also active in the National Honor Society, has high honors in all four years, and is an Illinois State Scholar.
The senior also has honors from the Alton Telegraph as the Class 1A Small School Player of the Year.
