A-J volleyball team wins title

The Anna-Jonesboro High School volleyball team won the Southern Illinois River-to-River Mississippi Division Conference outright over host Sparta 25-22 and 25-20 Thursday, Oct. 20.

“The girls set goals at the beginning of the season and they accomplished their goals,” A-J volleyball coach Amy Fitzgerald-Wilson said. “They play to win and they play like winners.” There were several games this season where the Lady Wildcats were down and came back.

“I’m so proud of this group and the conference championship,” Fitzgerald-Wilson added.
