Cass took straight set wins over visiting Pickens and Woodland.
LADY CANES TAKE ROAD WINS
Cartersville volleyball won a pair of non-region matches Thursday in Tunnel Hill defeating Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe in straight sets and Northwest Whitfield in three sets.
Cartersville edged the host Lady Bruins in the opening set 26-24, but dropped the second set to Northwest 25-13. The Lady Canes bounced back to take the deciding third set, 15-11.
Nedu Evans had 18 kills, nine digs, and three aces against Northwest. Grace Hunter contributed 32 assists, six digs, three kills, and three aces. Bekah Stevens had six kills and Anna Grace Brock (photo) totaled five kills and nine digs.
“That first set was a battle,” said Cartersville coach Dutch Cothran. “I was happy with the way we finished that one out. We didn’t pass well in the second set, but played much better in the third.”

In Cartersville’s nightcap against LFO, the Lady Canes swept to a 25-13, 25-9 victory.
“We played without our starting libero Anna Mathis tonight,” added Cothran. “We missed her and the energy she brings, but the team pulled together and got out of there with a pair of wins.”
Cartersville improved to 15-11 and will take their 4-0 Region 5-AAAA record to Sandy Creek on Tuesday to play the hosts and LaGrange. A Lady Canes’ sweep would lock up the top seed in the region playoffs.
