Massac Junior High School (MJHS) volleyball team finished up another great year with a third place finish at the SIJHSAA Class L tournament held March 23 at Pinckneyville.

To reach the finals the girls had to knock off a gritty Hamilton County team that pushed them to a third set tie-breaker.

The girls won the first set, dropped the second and then made a statement in the tie-breaker winning 15-6.

The tall and powerful [aren't they always] Mascoutah Indians were next up in the semi-finals and Massac got going right out of the chute against them taking the first match 25-23.

Mascoutah returned the favor in the second set edging the Lady Trojans by the same score before the strong hitters of Mascoutah overwhelmed the scrappy Massac defense in the third set.

Centralia was the opponent in the third place game, and Massac took care of business in straight sets to finish out the year with a stellar record of 30-3.
