The Lady Cats Volleyball Team will face quite a challenge as they play host to Wylie East on this Tuesday (September 17) game day. There will be JV and freshman contests beginning at 4:30 p.m. The Lady Cats varsity will take on the Lady Raiders at 5:30 p.m. in the main gym at Sulphur Springs High School. In recent history, tonight will mark the fourth time the two teams have meet starting with their bi-district contest at Royse City on Halloween night in 2017. The Lady Raiders have won the previous three matches coming into tonight. The two teams also met very early this season at the Garland ISD tournament and Wylie East won 2-0. Lady Cats Coach Bailey Dorner recalls that both sets were close ones and she is confident the Lady Cats can turn things around tonight. The Lady Cats have an 18-9 record. They have won two in a row including a 3-0 victory at Pleasant Grove last Friday.
Meanwhile Wildcats Team Tennis has a very challenging trip to Texas High on the schedule on this game day Tuesday. Matches begin in Texarkana at 3:30 p.m. Texas High is the gold standard for district tennis and they have won straight district championships for more than two decades. No matter what happens Tuesday, the Wildcats are heavy favorites to finish as the #3 seed in the district for the upcoming playoffs. The Wildcats are 1-1 in district play going into Tuesday’s competition after a big win at Greenville last Tuesday.
