Lady Cats secure second seed

The Fruitvale Lady Cats will find themselves in a familiar spot once the regular season ends in less than a week, qualifying as a second seed in Class 1A with a rout of Yantis Oct. 13.

Fruitvale made it look easy against the Owls, sweeping their way to a 25-15, 25-4, 25-11 victory. Ashlyn Caffey had a great night serving getting 15 in a row in the second set. Callie Harris had 11 kills, Lulu Campbell had seven kills, and Lauren Brown and Abby Williams each had one kill.

Coach Jerry Ptak stated, “I’m very proud of this team. We are in the same position we were in last year and we feel good about getting to the Regional Tournament again.”

The Lady Cats were scheduled to travel to North Hopkins Oct. 20 before wrapping up district play with a Senior Night contest against Cumby Oct. 24.
