The Lady Bullets volleyball teams would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone that supported us in our efforts to spike out cancer this season.  We had a great turn out for our matches last night and that too is greatly appreciated.  The JV team lost in two sets but are back in action this weekend at the Pawnee Fresh/Soph tournament.  The Varsity team won a thriller over the Riverton Hawks in two sets.  The Varsity team plays Saturday in the Mahomet-Seymour Invite.
