Edwards County, Ill. – The lady lions’ season ends in heartbreak. The Edwards County Illinois High School Volleyball team played for a state championship today and came up short in the marquee game against Elmhurst losing in straight sets. The lady’s were aiming for their first perfect season and first state title. This season has been filled with emotion – mostly surrounding retiring legendary coach Linda Oxby. Oxby is retiring to focus on her battle with breast cancer. A parade for the team just wrapped up in Albion this evening.
