The Vandalia Junior High School seventh-grade girls volleyball team won its first regional title since 2001, defeating Toledo Cumberland, 25-23, 21-25 and 25-17 on last Thursday night.
The Lady Vandals advanced to the sectional on Monday night, with a trip to state on the line. They couldn't overcome Casey-Westfield attack heavy offense and lost, 25-14, 25-23.
"This was the best team we've played all year," Coach Jane Bell said. "They had the most attacks on us all year."
