Kalli Scheppers


DIXON – Kalli Scheppers of Mendota made quite the splash in her freshman season as a member of the Sauk Valley Community College women’s volleyball team.

While attaining many accolades during the season, Scheppers capped off her freshman year by being named a second-team NJCAA All-American. It is the first time in SVCC volleyball history that a player was named an All-American.

For the season, Scheppers accumulated 465 kills, which was good enough for 13th in the nation at the NJCAA Division II level. She also recorded 290 digs in helping the Skyhawks to a 27-14 record.

During the regular season, Scheppers earned all-tournament honors at the Blackhawk and Kankakee tournaments. She also was named to the Arrowhead Conference all-conference team and was an All-Region IV selection.

Scheppers will return for her sophomore season at SVCC in the fall, where she will be joined by former Mendota Spiker teammate Brianna Correa on the Skyhawks’ squad. Scheppers was a four-year varsity player from 2008-11 at MHS.
