    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted Walton-Verona in a match that was unusual in a couple of ways Sept. 6.

    Both teams had a player missing for the match due to illness so the coaches decided to score as a three-person match rather than the usual four-person match. It was also very cool and windy for an early-September day with temperatures in the lower 60s and the wind blowing hard from the northwest.

    The Lady Cats powered through the tough conditions to beat the Lady Bearcats 147 to 163.
