The LHS Classic Volleyball Tournament was held Saturday, October 8. Licking was plagued by injuries, yet came through pool play with only one loss, splitting sets with Houston. They advanced to the brackets as the number one team from the Black Pool, with Central (Park Hills) as team two. Mountain View and Salem were teams one and two, respectively, for the Orange Pool.

In bracketed play, Licking faced a determined Salem team in the semi-finals. Another injury for the Wildcats during the set did nothing to help their momentum and they fell, 1 set to two.
