Cedar­town vol­ley­ball still in re­gion, area play

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL SPORTS - Staff re­ports

The Cedar­town Lady Bull­dogs vol­ley­ball team have been hot in the past few weeks, gain­ing wins and im­prov­ing their over­all record to above even as the reg­u­lar sea­son con­tin­ues on the hard­wood.

Since Aug. 25, they’ve put up a 7-5 record in both reg­u­lar and tour­na­ment play and are be­gin­ning to look to­ward a chance at the state play­offs.

Cedar­town has thus far racked up a win and a loss over Wood­land at a Dar­ling­ton tour­na­ment on Aug. 25, plus a win over the Lady Tigers later that day and a loss to North­west Whit­field.

They’ve con­tin­ued to play a lit­tle hot and cold since, with a win recorded on Aug. 28 on the road at Tem­ple, then a loss the fol­low­ing day to South Pauld­ing.

On Aug. 30, they picked up a sec­ond win over Rock­mart, but fol­lowed it up with a loss to East Pauld­ing.

As play has con­tin­ued into Septem­ber, they’ve won over Cen­tral on Sept. 4, but then dropped games to Cartersville the same day.

They put up a pair of wins over Dar­ling­ton and Rock­mart on Sept. 6 as well.

Cedar­town still is in the mix as they start to get into re­gion play in earnest this week. Af­ter press time on Tues­day, they were trav­el­ing to LaGrange to play the Lady Grangers and Sandy Creek, and to­day host Rome and Pauld­ing County in non-con­fer­ence play.

They con­tinue play on Thurs­day with a trio of con­tes­tants set to visit Cedar­town and they’ll face the Model Lady Blue Dev­ils, Bre­men Lady Blue Dev­ils and Pep­perell Lady Dragons.

Next week they’re back on the road at Chapel Hill to face the Lady Pan­thers and the Lady Tigers of Troup County on Sept. 18, and on Sept. 20 head to Model to face the Lady Blue Dev­ils again and Rome. A break gives them time to breathe be­fore wrap­ping up on Sept. 27 at Pep­perell to face the Lady Dragons and Cass, and then they’re sched­uled to play Hi­ram on Oct. 4.

Check back for more up­dates on the Lady Bull­dogs progress as they be­come avail­able.
