    Katy Hining remembers the pain when last season's Western Big Six volleyball title slipped from the Quincy High School team's grasp.  A two-set road loss to Rock Island in the regular season finale denied the Blue Devils a third straight conference championship, despite finishing with an 8-2 conference record. The Rocks took the conference title with the victory. "It was heartbreaking," Hining, a junior outside hitter, said.
