  • Coming back nothing new to St....

    LEBANON – A St. Elmo volleyball comeback is not a new concept.

    Not this season, anyway.

    A three-set win in the finals of the Lebanon Sectional marked the sixth time that the Lady Eagles had used all three sets in a victory this season.

    “All through our season, we have always dug a hole and gotten out,” said senior Perry Manley. “We work together as a team and don’t quit, so little-by-little we get what we need.”

    Three seniors from Vandalia earned all-South Central Conference honors in volleyball.

    RaeChelle Leiken was voted to the first team by every coach in the conference, Austyn Krueger also earned first-team honors and Sierah   Ruffner was named to the second team.

    Leiken led Vandalia with 245 kills and added 41 service aces.

    Krueger was the leading server, with 52 aces, and she added 194 kills.

    Ruffner had 174 kills.

    There is no admission charge to the event, and a full schedule follows.

  • South Central's eight...

    FARINA – Though South Central was upset in the semifinals of the regional tournament last Tuesday, a large senior class still should be proud of how they banded together to get another 20-win season.

    The Lady Cougars finished the year at 23-11, and the eight-member senior class had a lot to do with that success. Coach Mary Brimberry said she will miss her fun-filled group.

    She said Kallie Garrett was the team’s “mother figure,” Jaci Rothe and Kellie Crain kept the atmosphere lively, and Riley Williams also had a joke to tell.
