Correction In last week’s article “Rockford High School girls varsity water polo earns gold Academic All American honors,” senior goalie Kaitlyn Korhorn was inadvertently omitted from the list of post-season team members. With only one year of full-time goalkeeping, Korhorn put up enough saves to be ranked fifth all-time in saves among Rockford goalies. She is the only Rockford player from the varsity water polo team to continue playing after high school. Next year, Korhorn will be guarding the net at Michigan State University.
