The Woodland volleyball team downed rival Cass in a non-region match Tuesday on the road. However, the Wildcats came up short against Kell, settling for a split in the tri-match.
Woodland actually opened the night with the 25-16, 25-11 loss to Kell, which used to be in the Wildcats' region. Sydney Molinaro had five kills in the defeat.
Despite dropping the first set to Cass, 25-18, Woodland rallied to earn a three-sets victory. The final two sets were 25-20 and 15-7 in favor of the Wildcats (7-13).
Molinaro had another huge performance in beating the Colonels. The senior contributed 14 kills, eight assists and seven digs. Delaney Tuplin added six kills and two digs in the victory.
Emmalee Cigainero had 16 digs and four aces across the two matches. Cayley Stantz finished with 14 total assists on the night.
Woodland will return to action Thursday, when it hosts Paulding County and Cherokee.
Cartersville goes 1-1
Cartersville steamrolled to a first-set win over Murray County only to see the hosts storm back to grab a victory in non-region play Tuesday. The Canes bounced back to rout Rockmart to salvage a road split.
Against Murray County, Cartersville earned a 25-12 win to begin the match. Things went downhill from there, as the Canes dropped the final two sets by scores of 25-16 and 15-10.
Perhaps fueled by the defeat, Cartersville rolled past Rockmart, allowing a combined 19 points in the two-sets victory.
London Moultrie led the Canes with a dozen kills on the night, while Ailee England contributed seven. Layne Condra paced Cartersville with four aces. England and Macey Vaughn finished with three apiece.
