A standout performer in junior high; Sederwall led the Lady Comets basketball team to the state tournament, captured first in three events at the district track meet and later starred for the Quincy Junior Jets softball program. A natural in five different sports Sederwall can boast of having earned a spot in the starting lineup in volleyball, basketball and softball and three varsity letters while in her freshman year. As a sophomore Sederwall again earned three varsity letters and was named to two All-Tournament teams in both volleyball and basketball. But it was on the softball diamond where she excelled. Asked to pitch out of necessity, Sederwall turned in an outstanding record and fired a conference best three no-hit games. During her junior year, Sederwall captured spots on the All Western Big Six and Quincy Herald Whig All-Area basketball teams. And on the softball diamond Candi batted .350 and pitched in every game. Sederwall turned in impressive records in all three sports during her senior year. She was chosen as a co-captain on the volleyball squad and was again selected to two All-Tournament teams. She retained her spot on the All-Western Big Six squad and was named to the Champaign News Gazette All-State team all while setting a school record for terminations. Sederwall then went about putting together a monster season on the hard court, collecting All-Tournament honors in Hannibal and East St. Louis, and winning spots on the All-Western Big Six and Herald Whig All Area teams. She was selected as the team's co-captain, Most Valuable Player, was the team's best free throw shooter and set a school scoring mark with 1,197 points. She graduated as the all-time leading scorer. Sederwall capped a great high school career by being named to the Herald Whig All-Area team for her efforts on the softball diamond and starred in the McDonald's/Herald Whig All-Star basketball game later that summer.
