County teams play in Sequoyah Classic

East Coweta's volleyball team split its first two matches to open this weekend's Sequoyah Classic, sweeping Kennesaw Mountain after going the distance with Etowah in a battle of programs that reached the Class AAAAAA state playoffs last season.

The Lady Indians, who opened the season with a scrimmage win over Fayette in three games and a sweep of Riverwood (25-21, 25-14) in their season opener last Saturday, improved to 2-1 overall and 1-1 in the tournament with a 25-13, 25-14 victory over Kennesaw Mountain.

It came after East Coweta fell in three games against Etowah, winning the first, but ultimately dropping the next two in a close 26-24, 22-25, 14-16 decision.

Newnan and Northgate also opened play in the annual tournament on Friday and will face off this morning to close pool play in the 32-team event.

Matches are again split among eight pools at four host sites - Sequoyah, Etowah, River Ridge and Creekview. More than half made the state playoffs last year.

Newnan and Northgate join Woodstock and Oconee County in Pool B. Both schools swapped opponents on Friday in a pair of matches against the Lady Wolverines and Lady Warriors. Scores were unavailable at deadline.

East Coweta is grouped in Pool C with Cobb County schools Kennesaw Mountain and Sprayberry.

The top-two teams in each pool advance to the gold bracket and the bottom two play in the silver bracket to compete tournament play today.
