Receive free admission by bringing at least one non-perishable food donation to go to The Care Mission based in LaFayette, Georgia. The Lady Cats start things off by hosting Welch College (TN). The Bobcats will play immediately following against NJCAA Region XVII opponent West Georgia Tech.

The Lady Cats have four regular-season games remaining between now and the NJCAA Region XVII Tournament at Emory-Oxford in Oxford, Georgia.
