    WILLS POINT — The Sulphur Springs Lady Cats did well against new teams in scrimmage action Saturday.
    The Lady Cats took on Mabank and Caddo Mills as part of a volleyball scrimmage held at Wills Point.

    “We probably played better against Caddo Mills. Mabank did some attacks and something we haven’t seen yet. It did us good to go up against two competitive programs,” said Allison Irvin, Sulphur Springs head volleyball coach.
    The teams all played on a rotating format with a 40 minute running clock. No scores were kept.
    “We took on some talented, aggressive teams,” Irvin said. “We did a lot of good things. We found out how important communication is. We did not communicate well, then we fixed it and we played better. Both Caddo Mills and Mabank communicated well.”
    The Lady Cats played their same 10-11 player lineup they used in home scrimmage competition Friday against Commerce and Cumby.
    “We made good adjustments to the things the teams we doing. We are still young and learning,” Irvin said. “Both our middle girls are freshmen. We need to block with better timing and placement. We had some girls step up, we learned a lot from the scrimmage.”
    Sulphur Springs will play their first game of the volleyball season Tuesday in Pattonville against Prairiland and North Lamar. The ninth grade, junior varsity and varsity will all be in action starting at 4:30 p.m.
    The first home game for the Lady Cats is Aug. 19 against North Lamar, ninth, JV and varsity at 4:30 p.m. One gym will be used, the varsity game is set for 6:30 p.m.
