Lady Canes sweep to area wins, Woodland splits area openers, Cass drops pair
Cartersville volleyball swept its opening Area 5-AAAA matches Tuesday night in Carrollton with wins over Cedartown and Central-Carroll. The Lady Canes won both matches in straight sets.
The Lady Canes topped Cedartown 25-14, 25-12 and took down Central-Carroll 25-21, 25-16.
"Our setters and middles played well tonight," said Lady Canes head coach Dustin Cothran. "Nedu Evans was dominant on offense and defense. We are starting to get some girls healthy now, so the lineup is changing a little. We will be better as those girls continue to heal and gel with the others."
Cartersville (13-2, 2-0) travels to Chapel Hill next Tuesday to face the host Panthers and play Troup. Area play begins at 5 p.m.
