FLINT — The Carman-Ainsworth volley team is going to embrace the wipe-the-slateclean mantra that many schools adopt at this point in the season. At 5-23, the season looks bleak for the Lady Cavs. However, coach Barb Hurand says it matters not what the team has done to this point.
“Whatever happened in the regular season is history at district time,” Hurand said. “Anything can happen at tournament time.”
Carman-Ainsworth faces St Johns in the second round of the Class A district 9 tournament at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 2. They will play in one of two semifinal matches. The first semifinal match at 5 p.m. Wednesday will pit Swartz Creek (1-5) against the winner of the opening round match between Owosso and Flushing (23- 17-1) at 4 p.m. Monday, Oct 31. The semifinal winners will meet for the championship at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 3.
Key players for the Cavs this season have been Diamond Lester, Morgan Sherrer, Alexis Reno, Amaya Campbell , Lauryn Bissonette, Katie Speaks and Angel Eubanks. Also contributing key points and pivotal roles are Mary Dollinger and Madison Travis.
