MILFORD — For most of her life, Cissna Park junior Brooklyn Stadeli has been better known as “the twins’ sister,” growing up the younger sister of former Timberwolves boys basketball stars and 2019 graduates Christian and Julian Stadeli.

But the junior outside hitter has spent the past three seasons making a name for herself, most recently with her and her team’s performance in Monday’s IHSA Class 1A Milford Sectional semifinals.

Stadeli had eight kills — tied with Josie Neukomm for a team-high — to go along with six aces to help lead the Timberwolves past Aqsa 2-0 (25-7, 25-2) and into Wednesday’s sectional championship game.
