Massac County's boys golf team's season is officially over now with Noah Matesevac and Hayden Summers' appearances at the Charleston IHSA Class AA sectional tournament.
While Matesevac struggled with the par 72 Charleston Golf and Country Club layout, Summers must have found it to his liking as he shot one of his best rounds of the year. His 81 was the ninth best score of the day and placed him in a tie for 19th place. Benton won the sectional and moves on to state this weekend at Illinois State's Weibring Course. Hopefully it doesn't snow like it did last year. Camren Ray of Lawrenceville was the overall medalist with a two under par 70. Benton's Cy Norman was the only other golfer to break par with a one under 71.

Massac's volleyball team was in action Tuesday night in a conference game against Benton and remained unbeaten in conference play. It took three sets but when the dust settled, Massac came out on top again. The set scores were 25-11, 22-25 and 25-15. The Lady Patriots got big games from a slew of girls. Jessie Lewis, Cali McCraw, Monique Hart and Hailey Edwards were once again strong at the net as they recorded 10 blocks and 22 kills. Kara Womack had 31 assists and Madison Hammonds and Sydney Wilke combined for 54 digs. Last Tuesday, the girls had a fairly easy time against Harrisburg, after a week's layoff, in a two set win. They then visited Caldwell County, Kentucky and were pushed a little harder winning the extended best three of five match 25-22, 25-21 and 25-19. Jessie Lewis set a school record with 25 kills in the match, and Kara Womack dished out a school record 46 assists in the win. The wins ran the girls' record to 24-4 overall and extended their winning streak to 14.
