    “We’ll have all the usually good food,” said Johnna Maier, administrative assistant for the Shelby County Chamber of Commerce.

    Whether you’re in the mood for burgers, pizza, tacos, meatballs, or even some more upscale dishes, at $20 for all you can eat, you won’t go away unsatisfied, said Maier.

    Collins easily cruised to victory over the Wildcats, winning the two sets by scores of 25-13 and 25-9.
