Lady Statesmen fall to John A. Logan in 4
Inconsistency proved too much to overcome for Lincoln Trail College's volleyball team Wednesday night (Sept. 25).

The Lady Statesmen played well at times, but it was not enough to get them in the win column, as they dropped their home match to John A. Logan in four sets, 23-25, 13-25, 25-20, 15-25.
