Cartersville volleyball dropped a pair of matches Friday night competing in the Sequoyah Classic at Etowah High School. The Lady Canes fell to Centennial 25-20 and 28-26 in straight sets and also lost to Columbus 25-14 and 25-8.
“We played well and fought hard against Centennial,” said Cartersville head coach Dutch Cothran. “We found some things that worked for us, so I was pround of that.” “Against Columbus we played well in spurts, but struggled late,” Cothran continued. “We made too many errors. We’re growing and we’ll be fine in the long run, but give Columbus credit. They have a really good team and they played well.”
Lauren Wenzell had 14 kills, three aces, and seven digs. Halle Matthews contributed six kills and three blocks, while Macey Vaughn added 19 assists. Cartersville (1-3) will face East Coweta Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. at Etowah High School as the tournament continues.
