The Lady Cavaliers began their season last Saturday at the Linden Invitational, competing against several teams, including the host Eagles, as well as Midland Dow, New Lothrop, Imlay City, Flint Powers Catholic, Hartland, Ida, Swartz Creek, Holly and New Haven. The event was moved to Fenton because Linden’s gym wasn’t ready for play after summer renovations.
The tournament began with pool play, and unfortunately for the Cavs, that is as far as they would get. Carman-Ainsworth fell in its match with Swartz Creek, 25-20, 26-24, and also dropped a contest with New Lothrop, 25-18, 25-15.
The Cavaliers will travel to New Lothrop today. — B.P.
