Lynn Camp continues to show improvement

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

ONEIDA BAPTIST — The Lynn Camp Lady Wildcat volleyball team is twice as good as they were last season. Literally.

Cody Dixon’s team notched its sixth victory of the season Tuesday, knocking off Oneida Baptist Institute in two sets, 25-5 and 25-13.

Dixon said he was pleased with the win and said his team has showed him that they know how to have fun.

“That’s what is most important is that the girls are having fun,” he said. “Even the girls that don’t play all the time, they seem to be enjoying things right now.

“We weren’t playing the same type of competition that we played yesterday in McCreary Central, but we played good,” he added. “We have six wins this year and that’s twice as many as we had all season last year, so that’s a big step forward.”

Lynn Camp sits at .500 with a 6-6 record. A match against district rival Knox Central looms large Thursday as the Lady Cats try to improve on their recent winning ways.

“That’s a big rivalry for us for a couple reasons,” Dixon said. “We want to compete in our district and it’s also one that we want to win because it’s Knox Central.

“As for competing, we want to show that we can play with these teams come postseason,” he added. “I feel like the girls are getting more and more confident as they continue to compete. I said the other day, they come into matches now expecting to play with any team, where before they came in expecting to lose.”
