Following its first winless night of the season, the Adairsville volleyball team bounced back nicely Tuesday at North Murray.
The Tigers overcame a scare in the opening set before cruising in the second en route to a 25-21, 25-13 Region 6-AAA win.
With the victory, Adairsville evens its overall mark at 7-7 and improves to 2-3 in the region, which currently has the Tigers in a four-way jumbled mess in the middle of the standings.
Kaylee Jordan led Adairsville with four kills and added the same number of digs. Grace Collins led the team in digs with five, while Aaliyah Applin added four. It was a similar story with assists, as Annie McCormick finished with a team-high five and Lexie Childers contributed four. Meanwhile, four different players managed two aces.
Cartersville sweeps in return
A long layoff seems to have done Cartersville some good, as the Canes returned to action Tuesday in impressive fashion.
After a week with no matches, Cartersville eased past Class 3A foes Coahulla Creek (25-10, 25-17) and Ringgold (25-11, 25-17) at a tri-match in Whitfield County.
London Moultrie paced the Canes with 19 kills, including 14 versus host Coahulla Creek. Mason Cline and Mia Nicklas each had six kills in that match.
Setter Macey Vaughn totaled 33 assists — two-thirds of which came against the Colts. Layne Condra led the Cartersville defense, finishing with nine digs against Ringgold and eight against Coahulla Creek.
The Canes jumped back above .500 at 7-6 with the pair of wins. Cartersville will look to carry its momentum into Thursday's road test at North Paulding.
