Lady Canes win; Woodland, Cass split volleyball tri-matches


Cartersville volleyball made quick work of Armuchee Tuesday to move to 11-2.

The Lady Canes won in two sets, 25-8, 25-14.

The teams were also scheduled to play Coosa, but that fell through.

“I feel like we came out and did exactly what we were asked to do today,” Cartersville coach Dutch Cothran said. “The girls did a great job of maintaining their focus.”

The Lady Canes will now be off for a full week, returning to action next Tuesday against Central, Carrollton and Cedartown.
