    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted Williamstown in their last regular season match on Oct. 16 and came away with a convincing 25-18, 25-15 victory.

    It was fitting that on senior night, coach Katie Ruff singled out her only senior Kim Barmore for her play.

    The Lady Cats and Lady Demons traded points early in the game as both teams struggled to find some consistency.
