Georgia Northwestern Women’s Volleyball hosts the “Rumble In Rossville” Friday at the Rossville Athletic Complex (R.A.C.) in Rossville, Georgia. Area high schools, as well as Georgia Northwestern, will be playing matches throughout the day.

Tipping things off at 3:30 p.m. will be Collegedale Academy (TN) vs. Oakwood Christian Academy (GA). At 4:30, Collegedale will face-off with Grace Baptist (TN). Then, at 5:30, Grace and Oakwood will close out high school action.

Then, scheduled for an 8 p.m. start, the Lady Cats will host Hiwassee College (TN). Georgia Northwestern (0-5) has had some near misses early in their competitive schedule against four-year programs across the region.

Second-year head coach Carrie Powell and her squad won their first match in 2012 against Hiwassee College on the road in Madisonville, Tennessee. 

Admission for the “Rumble In Rossville” is $3 for adults and $1 for children.

Lady Cats Intercollegiate Volleyball is a member of the NJCAA, the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association, and a unit of the Technical College System of Georgia.
