Dixon sends message to players during loss

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

LYNN CAMP — After Tuesday’s loss to Harlan the Lynn Camp volleyball team may be in for a surprise the next time they take the court.

During the Lady Wildcats’ 2-0 (25-12 and 27-25) loss, head coach Cody Dixon said he used mass substitutions Tuesday to get a point across to his varsity squad after its lackluster play. That message — "”they can be replaced.”

After falling behind 19-5 in the first set, Dixon said his team was off from the previous match, which forced him to go to his bench.

“The girls just seemed to have a different mindset tonight as opposed to the Bell County match,” Dixon said. “I ended up putting in my junior varsity squad to play and they did a good job.

“It was really just a learning moment for the girls, showing them that if they aren’t going to go out there and give their best effort, they can be replaced,” he added. “No disrespect toward Harlan, but I really think we should have won this match if we had played half as good as we did against Bell County.”

Lynn Camp moves to 0-4 on the season and will be back in action Thursday when it hosts Middlesboro at 6 p.m.
