October 27, 2016
The John A. Logan volleyball team completed the regular season by defeating SWIC 3-1 to finish in second place in the Great Rivers Athletic Conference. It was a close match from start to finish with the Lady Vols prevailing, 25-23, 31-29, 22-25 and 25-13.
The win also gives the Lady Vols the second seed in the NJCAA Region 24 tournament on Friday and Saturday at John A. Logan. The Vols will face Kaskaskia on Friday at 7 p.m. with the winner facing Lake Land for the Region championship on Saturday, 1 p.m.
“It will be good to be at home in the tournament,” said Logan coach Bill Burnside. “I thought we played OK against SWIC, but we will have to play better to defeat Kaskaskia and advance to the finals on Saturday.”
