The Henry County Lady Cats traveled to Owen County Thursday night to take on the Owen County Lady Rebels.

In the teams’ previous meeting at Henry County, the Lady Cats pulled out a 3-2 win.

The Lady Rebels turned the tables this time around and won the match 3-2 to even the season series.

Henry County started slow in the match and fell behind according to Coach Katie Ruff. But the Cats stormed back to take the first game.

Owen County turned the tables on the Henry County in the second game as the Cats couldn’t seem to get in a rhythm.

“We just weren’t ready to play,” Ruff said. “We were not consistent.”

The Lady Cats battled back to take game three as the team showed signs of coming together.

But Owen County defended their home turf by taking games four and five to win the match.

“We showed a lot of potential but we can’t seem to keep it up for an entire match,” Ruff said.

HCHS 0, Anderson County 2

Henry County hosted the Lady Bearcats of Anderson County on Sept. 18 and fell in two games.

The Lady Cats got off to a slow start in game 1 and fell behind but made a nice run to get back in the contest. But the Lady Bearcats pulled away for a 25-18 win.

In game two it was more of the same as the Cats made a nice run at Anderson before falling 25-19.

“Anderson was a good team,” Ruff said. “They were tough. We stuck with them but we got off to a slow start and never really got back in it. We had some good runs but it goes back to being inconsistent.

“Molly Williamson passed really well against Anderson. She had some great digs in this match.”
