An official from Vandalia will be a line judge at the state volleyball tournament next Friday and Saturday.
Ruth Holliday, who has been an Illinois High School Association volleyball official for 33 years, for the first time in her career was selected to take part in the state tournament in Normal.
“It’s an honor and a thrill,” Holliday said. “It’s the first time I have gone this far.”
In other postseason action this fall, she will also officiate at a super-sectional match.
