JACKSONVILLE – It’s pretty safe to say the Pleasant Valley volleyball team knows its way around Jacksonville State’s coliseum by now. The Lady Raiders are the only team to have played in the Calhoun County Volleyball Tournament final every year since the match moved there as the first high school event in the refurbished gym in 2015.

The Lady Raiders are back in the final again – for the third year in a row – and this time they’d really like to finish the job.

Top-seeded PV punched its ticket to Monday’s 7:30 p.m. title match with two wins Saturday at Jacksonville High School – a 3-1 win over Weaver and a 3-0 sweep of No. 4 Oxford in the semifinals. The Lady Raiders (36-3) will play second-seeded Alexandria (25-5) for the title.
