The 1982 Sandburg Volleyball Team is the first volleyball team in the school´s history to win the Arrowhead Conference Championship and were one win away from a spot in the state volleyball championship tournament. Fatigue may have played a part in Sandburg´s defeat in the regional tournament. "We lost our momentum due to a lack of concentration," Sandburg head volleyball coach Mary (Campagna) Robson said at the time. It was Robson´s first year as the head volleyball coach at Sandburg. Prior to coaching at Sandburg, she coached the volleyball teams at Lombard Middle School (Galesburg, Ill.) and at Galesburg High School.
