    It was a match that most would have picked the Lady Bearcats as the favorites to win, but the Lady Demons gave them a game, challenging them by winning the first set 25-20, forcing Walton-Verona to win the next two sets or becoming the upset win Williamstown needed to get back to regionals.

    The Lady Braves accomplished their first goal in getting to the regional tournament.

    The Lady Braves defeated Mason County 4-0 in the first round of the 23rd District Tournament Oct. 10 at St. Patrick’s in Maysville.

    For senior Kristin Keeton the opportunity to go back in her final season will be heartfelt. Her mother has been battling lymphoma and has only been to a couple of games.
