Prep roundup: Kaneland announces interim AD plan

Kaneland School District 302 on Thursday announced that three retired educators will fill the role of interim athletics and activities director for the remainder of the 2013-14 school year.

Ralph Drendel, Rudy Keller and Ross Truemper will collaborate to fill the role left vacant by Leigh Jaffke's resignation last month. Jaffke became Kaneland’s athletic director in 2000.

Drendel, a longtime former Kaneland teacher, coach and assistant athletic director, was a recent inductee into the athletic wing of the school's hall of fame. Keller and Truemper also have extensive administrative experience, including a two-year stint as interim principals at West Aurora.

Kaneland assistant principal Mike Rice had been overseeing athletics on a short-term basis.
