McCracken County begins its seventh-consecutive trip to the KHSAA state volleyball tournament at 2:30 p.m. Friday, taking on Notre Dame at Valley High School in Louisville.

The Lady Mustangs (32-8) successfully defended for the sixth time their First Region title last week, beating Graves County in straight sets at Hickman County High School.

The Lady Pandas (28-11), from Park Hills, Ky. – just outside Covington and 10 minutes from Cincinnati, Ohio – won the Ninth Region championship in straight sets over St. Henry last week.

Both teams went undefeated in region play this year.
