JACKSONVILLE – It’s been a while since Alexandria played in the finals of the Calhoun County volleyball tournament. Not 29-cents-a-gallon while, but long enough to not want to miss another year. The only reason coach Whitney Welch remembered just how long is because it came in a year the Lady Cubs played in the state championship match.

The Lady Cubs have been talking about playing for the ultimate bragging rights in the county for years, but always seemed to come up short.

Last year Pleasant Valley kept them from playing for the crown, ending their run in the semifinals. The Lady Raiders stand in their way again, but this time it’s in Monday’s winner-take-all title match at Jacksonville State the Lady Cubs have wanted so much to be a part of.
