CENTRALIA — In a matchup between two of the top four teams in our Volleyball Coaches’ Poll, the Nashville Hornettes showed why they are the top ranked team in the area, winning at number four Centralia 25-19, 25-15.

The Hornettes improved to 9-1, while the Annies suffered their first loss in four games this season.

Nashville head coach Josh Konkel believes scheduling up and playing quality 3A teams such as Centralia will help his squad down the road, especially with an SIRR Mississippi gauntlet that includes Carterville, Pinckneyville, and Du Quoin.
