District record still perfect, 4-0

FERRIS–The Mabank Lady Panthers volleyball team keep racking up the wins after a clean 3-0 match against Ferris Oct. 10 on the road.
Mabank won three convincing sets by scores of 25-6, 25-6 and 25-17 to lift their record to 25-10 on the season and remain a perfect 4-0 in district play. The win gives Mabank a victory over each team in its district.
The game was won so quickly that the Lady Panthers didn’t have the game time to compile as many stats as previous games. Madison Holyfield led Mabank with eight kills and added one dig and two aces; Payton Costlow had the most blocks with three to go with her other score lines of two kills and two digs and Meagan Holyfield had a team-high 16 assists with three kills and one ace. Brii Young had one kill, one dig and two aces; Madd Park three kills and one ace; Gabby Duncan one ace and Baily Swain three kills and three digs.
Head Coach Stacey Shelton says the Lay Panthers are on top of their game at an important time of the year.
“We are in the middle of our district schedule right now and we are taking care of business in a timely manner,” Shelton said. “I’m proud of how hard they are playing.”
The Lady Panthers begin their second pass through their district opponents Oct. 24 when the Athens Lady Hornets come to Mabank.
“Athens has always played us well and we are going to need to be prepared,” Shelton said.

HCPAC remembers 50 years of musicals

Special to The Monitor
ATHENS–The Henderson County Performing Arts Center (HCPAC) is in its final week of rehearsals before the opening of All Those Musicals: a 50 Year Revue.
The show features songs everyone will remember from more than 20 Broadway musicals performed at HCPAC over the last 50 years.
The shows represented, however, are only a fraction of the ones actually produced over that time period.
“It was hard to choose which songs to put in and which ones would have to be left out,” HCPAC Executive Director Marcia Colbert said.
“It just wasn’t possible to showcase every single show,” she added. “There were over 60 musicals produced at HCPAC since 1964, so, we just did the best we could and we think it is a fantastic show everyone will enjoy.”
The ‘walk down Musical Memory Lane’ will showcase songs from Fiddler on the Roof, The King and I, Camelot, The Sound of Music, Oklahoma!, South Pacific, Singin’ in the Rain and many, many more.
Audiences will recognize these wonderful gems and be tempted to sing along with the entertainers.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, Oct. 16-18 and 23-25, 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 19.
The opening night reception is at 6 p.m.
Tickets are $17 for adults, $12 for students and children. Group rates are available for 10 or more at $12 per person.
To make reservations, call (903) 675-3908.
HCPAC is a non-profit 501(C)(3) corporation located at 400 Gibson Rd. in Athens.
