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.”

THE WAY IT IS: Football is in the air in the Tri-County
These cool summer days are reminding me of the cool football Friday nights of September and October, and with that said, these cooler temperatures have me in the mood of writing about things to come for our local football teams in the Tri-County.
It’s never too early to talk about what games will be the big ones for the Tri-County high school football fans to watch this upcoming season. I’ve tried to narrow my list down to 10 games, but honestly, it really wasn’t easy to do — but I did manage to do it.
Let’s just say things should be very entertaining, and interesting, for you the fan this season.
