After a rough start, Carroll County bounced back to defeat Pulaski County in straight games Thursday in a non-district volleyball tilt in Hillsville.

Carroll County found itself down 5-1 in the opening game and the Cavaliers appeared lethargic at the outset of the contest. Head coach Cindy Edwards called timeout, however, and Carroll County (5-1, 1-0 Three Rivers District) began to rally. The opening game was close throughout until the Lady Cavs went on a run to close it out 25-18. Carroll used that momentum to sweep the second and third sets by scores of 25-19, 25-22 respectively.

Adrienne Harris was active at the net, leading the Cavaliers with 11 kills in the victory. She also contributed six digs and an ace. Chasity Tompkins posted a game-high 12 digs for Carroll from the libero position and Hannah Spangler guided the offense with 13 assists. Taylor Spangler tacked on six assists and a team-high four aces in the Cavaliers’ victory.

Laura McDonald (10 digs) and Serenity Mitchell (seven kills) led the way for Pulaski County (3-5).
