Another exciting volleyball season highlighted by two Bartow County high schools reaching the state tournament, great rallies and outstanding athletic effort on both sides of the net has come and gone.

But it is hard to argue which high school was the most dominating on the court and who is the county's MVP.
The Cartersville Lady Purple Hurricanes is the county's Team of the Year with their 25-15 overall record and having made it all the way to the second round of the Class AAA state tournament. Cartersville finished the season ranked ninth in Class AAA and 88th overall in the state.
The Lady Canes, who also won the Bartow County championship, capped off their season by finishing second in the Area 4-AAA volleyball tournament and then beating the Jackson Jaguars in the opening round of the state tournament.
