CLINTON – With high anticipation as the first Mississippi state championship that will crown seven state champions after the addition of the 7A classification this season, the 2023 MHSAA Volleyball State Championships, presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Mississippi will be played at Ole Miss’ Gillom Athletics Performance Center on October 19-20.
“We appreciate the hospitality and warm welcome shown by our friends at Ole Miss, and hosting events in Oxford continues to provide our spectators and participants an awesome experience,” said MHSAA Executive Director Rickey Neaves. “We look forward to handing out seven volleyball state championship trophies in Oxford next month.”
