The Fruitvale Lady Cats wrapped up non-district play last week, sweeping past Cumberland Sept. 15 before falling just short against 4A Pittsburg Sept. 19.

Fruitvale made it look easy against Cumberland cruising to a three-set win. Callie Harris and Mattie Davis both had seven kills each. Lulu Campbell finished with a team-high 12 assists and Abby Williams added nine assists.

The Lady Cats hosted Pittsburg Sept. 19, falling 28-26, 22-25, 25-23, 25-15 to the Lady Pirates. Abby Williams finished play with five kills and seven assists, Callie Harris totaled nine kills, Lulu Campbell finished with 11 assists and two kills and Mattie Davis added seven kills.

Coach Jerry Ptak stated, “The girls played hard and just missed out on a couple of plays that could have gone either way. It was a good match to get ready for district play this Friday (Sept. 22).

The Lady Cats were scheduled to host at Miller Grove at 4 p.m. Sept. 22 to open district play before traveling to take on Yantis Sept. 26.
