The Illinois High School Association (IHSA) and COUNTRY Financial are teaming up to recognize the rich tradition of high school girls volleyball in Illinois, as they proudly introduce the IHSA Girls Volleyball Vintage Games series presented by COUNTRY Financial.
Through interactive fan polling, the COUNTRY Financial Vintage Games series will look to recognize the best state championship matches in IHSA history from four different decades, including the 1980’s, 1990’s, 2000’s and 2010’s.
