Lady Canes fall to St. Pius X in state semifinals

The Cartersville volleyball team had its state tournament run come to an end Tuesday night at The Storm Center in a straight sets loss to St. Pius X, 25-16, 25-14, 25-5.

Prior to Tuesday’s Final Four loss, Cartersville had state tournament wins over Madison County, LaFayette, and Richmond Academy, but perennial power St. Pius proved to be a much bigger task.

The loss ends the Lady Canes’ season with a 26-12 record. Cartersville also won a third consecutive Region 5-AAAA championship and this was the program’s first-ever trip to the state’s Final Four.

The Cartersville team will see the departure of eight seniors, including five lineup regulars. St. Pius X advances to face Marist in the GHSA Class AAA State Championship match Saturday at Marietta High School. Marist prevailed at Columbus in the other state semifinal match Tuesday night 25-19, 21-25, 25-20 and 25-23.
