Lady Canes edge North Paulding in five set match; Cass splits Area matches


Cartersville volleyball defeated North Paulding in a grueling five set match at The Storm Center Tuesday night to close out the regular season and celebrate the Lady Canes’ Senior Night.


North Paulding took the opening set 25-15 before Cartersville won the next two sets 25-22 and 32-30. North Paulding edged the Lady Canes 26-24 in the fourth set, but Cartersville pulled out the deciding set, 15-12.


“North Paulding has a very good team,” said Cartersville head coach Dutch Cothran. “We were fortunate to come away with a win tonight.


Nedu Evans finished the night with 23 kills, two aces, and a dozen digs. Bekah Stevens contributed 14 kills, two aces, and ten digs. Anna Mathis totaled three aces and 16 digs. Anna Grace Brock had seven kills, four aces, and 14 digs.


“We made some errors, but our serving was huge tonight,” added Cothran. “Having Nedu on the outside and Bekah right side keeps the blockers honest. Plus Grace Hunter does a great job getting them the ball.”


Cartersville improved to 20-11 on the season and will play next Tuesday, October 9 in the first round of the Area 5-AAAA Tournament at Chapel Hill. Cartersville will host the second day of the region tournament on Thursday, October 11.


“I’m grateful for our seniors and their parents,” continued Cothran. “Our program is healthy due to their tireless effort over the past four years.”
