LYNN CAMP — After starting the season winless after their first four games, the Lynn Camp Lady Wildcat volleyball team is beginning to hit stride at an important time of the season.
Lynn Camp (3-4) captured its third straight win of the season by defeating Kentucky School for the Deaf in two sets, 25-8 and 25-5, and will now enter Saturday’s 13th Region All ‘A’ Tournament against Middlesboro with a lot of momentum.
“We are playing really good right now,” Dixon said. “I give a lot of credit to Kentucky School for the Deaf. They are a better team than I thought they would be and they really gave a great effort out there.”
The three-game winning streak is Lynn Camp’s first dating back to mid-September of 2007.
“The big thing about this team is they have a winning attitude,” Dixon said. “I don’t think we really had it last year, but we do now. These girls enter every game they play thinking they have a chance to win. We might not win every game, but we do give ourselves a good chance.”
The Lady Wildcats dominated Thursday’s action against K.S.D. by reeling off 14 straight serves in the first set and 13 consecutive serves in the second set.
“We were really crushing our serves tonight,” Dixon said. “We did a really good job of serving.”
Now Dixon will try to lead his team to the 13th Region All ‘A’ Classic Tournament championship Saturday at Middlesboro High School. Lynn Camp’s first round opponent will be Middlesboro and the winner will face-off against Red Bird.
“We got a good draw,” Dixon said. “I really feel like if we can get past Middlesboro we can get to the championship game and once you get there, who knows what can happen.”
