The all-freshmen Lady Cats Women’s Volleyball squad from Georgia Northwestern wraps up the home side of their NJCAA pilot season with a “Pack The R.A.C.” night on Monday, October 15 at 6 p.m. The R.A.C., the Rossville Athletic Complex in Rossville, Georgia, is the home to GNTC Women’s Volleyball and Men’s Basketball.

GNTC will play Oakwood University (AL) in a rematch of a September 29 contest in Huntsville, Alabama. “They had a packed gym and a loud crowd and our girls were in it from the start,” said Georgia Northwestern Head Women’s Volleyball Coach Carrie Powell of the closely-contested road loss. “We want to return the favor on Monday.”

Powell is asking the high schools from which her squad hails to come out to the season-ending match to show their support of the program.

The 2012 Lady Cats consist of Alysa Daniel (LFO), Brandi Francisco (Ridgeland), Siouxanne Hawkins (LaFayette), Kristine Huskey (Battlefield Parkway Christian Academy), Fallon Larmon (LaFayette), Candice McClain (LaFayette), and Kayla Pierce (Gordon Lee).  Powell is a former all-region player from Ridgeland High School, as well as an all-conference standout for Georgia Northwestern during her college career.
