The Class 1A Altha Lady Varsity Wildcats closed out their regular season last Thursday with a 18-5 overall season record that included a sweep of 3A Chipley and a split with Marianna which is also a class 3A school.
Regular season statistical leaders for the Varsity Lady Wildcats includes Loni Johnson with 133 points and 57 aces. Christy Simmons hammered 128 kills, accounted for 10 blocks and she had 43 digs. Cortney Harris posted 133 assists.
Yesterday these Lady Wildcats (3-3, District 2, Class 1A) began district tournament play against Robert F. Munroe (check out The County Record's website for the score) that is also being hosted by Munroe.
Regardless of the outcome of yesterday's game, the following team members have put together a remarkable season that will not soon be forgotten: KK Beauchamp, Emily Brooks, Cessna Folsom, Cortney Harris, Loni Johnson, Nikki Schamens, Christy Simmons, Amy Tharp and Rebekah Wiltse. Their coach is Leanna Hall.
With the Wildcats' junior varsity and middle school teams doing well also, Altha's varsity program will continue its upward climb for years to come. Already Wildcat fans are saying, "I can't wait 'til next year!"
