Franklin-Simpson Lady Cat’s volleyball team celebrated their season with a banquet and lock in at Franklin-Simpson High School last Saturday night.

The Franklin-Simpson Lady Cats' volleyball team celebrated their season last Saturday night at their season ending banquet.

As head coach Megan Vincent said at the beginning of the season, wins were going to be earned this season as the schedule was going to be much tougher as it was in the past because she wanted to challenge her team to bring out the best in each and everyone of her players.

They honored their five seniors, including Cassidy Eversole, Meadow Hall, Shelby Johnston, Maddie Squires and Rylie Spears. These five seniors have competed in the 13th District Championship match and the 4th Region Tournament two seasons in a row. Also they made school history by winning their first ever match in the region tournament with a four set win over the Clinton County Bulldogs in 2017.
