The Lady Cat Volleyball team ended their conference season 14-0, while only losing one set all season. Senior Kennedi Wyrick really led the charge for this group. “With me just being here for 3 years and having the experience to help take our team to the next level really helps,” said Wyrick. The Lady Cats got a bye the first day of the state tournament and had several key players to step up the next day for the quarterfinals game vs the Bentonville Tigers. Junior setter Olivia Wiedower had 41 assist, senior outside hitter Kennedi Wyrick had 22 kills, and senior middle blocker Madison Hollaway added 12 kills in the lady cats 4-1 quarterfinal win. The lady cats then went on to lose to the Fayetteville Bulldogs 3-1 in the semifinals.

Nevertheless, the Lady Cats had an amazing run that nobody expected. This Lady Cat volleyball program has been amazing these past few years and there are no signs on them slowing down,
