North Clay Lady Cardinal Kylie VanDyke advanced to the sectional round of the IHSA Queen of the Hill, Three-Point Shoot Out by making eight of 15 chances at Thursday's Class 1A Regional Tournament in Albion.
VanDyke will go to Goreville Thursday, February 14 which is the sectional tournament to shoot. VanDyke is really excited since during the first week of basketball practice she broke the bone in the top of her foot and tore three ligaments. She was just released from the doctor after Christmas and has only played since the first of the year.
