Published 9:09 pm Tuesday, September 27, 2022

The Vicksburg Missy Gators are still the queens of the volleyball court.

Kennedy Mullins served nine aces, and had 11 assists and 11 saves as well, as Vicksburg High beat Florence 3-1 (25-15, 25-22, 25-27, 25-14) on Tuesday to clinch the MHSAA Region 6-5A championship.

“Kennedy Mullins was the motor for the team, but it was a total team contribution from the other players,” Vicksburg coach Deborah Brown said.
