(Oakwood University, Huntsville, AL) – The Lady Cats made the more than two-hour road trip for a prime-time match up with four-year college Oakwood University. After taking game one, Oakwood would have their hands full, but managed to steal away the next three to win the non-region match 25-20, 19-25, 23-25, 16-25.

The all-freshman squad from northwest Georgia would be led by Candice McClain with 13 kills on the night. The 5-foot-3 freshman hitter from LaFayette (HS), along with her first-year teammates, will help Georgia Northwestern (1-7) host Covenant College Monday night at The R.A.C., Rossville Athletic Complex, at 7 p.m. Covenant College took the first match of the 2012 series atop Lookout Mountain just one week ago in a four-game match win over Georgia Northwestern.

The Lady Cats compete in the N JCAA’s Region XVII and awards all students free admission with student i.d.
