Late Tuesday night, KSST Sports learned that the first place Lady Tigers of Texas High had lost a volleyball road contest at Hallsville. That upped the ante for this Friday’s Lady Cats’ volleyball team’s home contest against Texas High. With the T High loss and the Lady Cats win over Greenville at home Tuesday night, the Lady Cats find themselves just one game out of first place. A win Friday would put the Lady Cats into a first place tie with the Lady Tigers.
The word is beginning to spread. SSISD publicist and former basketball coach Rusty Harden is helping spread the news. In an e-mail entitled The Lady Cats Need You, he is encouraging everyone to come to the game Friday beginning at 4:30 p.m. and cheer on the Lady Cats. All SSISD students from Pre-K to fifth grade can get in free. Two students can enter free with a paying adult. Harden says to wear Wildcats colors or pink for an October pink out night. He encourages bringing support posters and being loud.
