CAMDEN’S FAITH GRANT GOES up for a block in Tuesday’s first round state playoff win over Woodruff.

Camden made quick work of Woodruff, winning in three straight sets, 25-19, 25-10 and 25-14, to advance into Thursday’s AAA second round contest at Pickens.
The winner of the CHS-Pickens match will take on the winner of River Bluff at Daniel with Daniel hosting the third-round pairing next Tuesday with a win over the Gators.
The Lady Bulldogs received six kills from Faith Grant, who was perfect on all 10 of her chances. Madison Grant had seven kills on a 17-for-19 night. Michaela Taylor (6-8) and Emma Buchanan (16-18) had six kills each with Kristen Carter having four kills as she was perfect on all nine of her attempts.
Owens Morgan served up five aces on a 10-for-13 night from the service stripe. Morgan Wilson (13-15) had four aces. She was followed by Kaitlyn Riley (9-10) and Carter (13-16) with two each while Maddison Flowers (8-8) had an ace.
In the passing department, Wilson found the mark on 35 of her 39 passes followed by Morgan (19-20), Caroline Kelly (9-10) and Haley Maree (5-6).
Camden head coach Paige Wilson said this was the kind of opening match she was hoping to get from her squad.
”Overall,” she said, “I was pleased with our performance.  Woodruff was a scrappy team that that kept the ball in play. 
“We had a slow start in the first set, making too many unforced errors, but improved that in sets two and three. 
“Quite a few of our girls had strong performances from the service line with Haley Maree leading the group.  Faith Grant and Kristen Carter stepped it up with their hitting tonight.  Michaela Taylor, Madison Grant and Emma Buchanan also had solid performances. Morgan Wilson, Owens Morgan, Haley Maree and Caroline Kelly continue to share in the defensive rolls. Owens Morgan, being the newest addition to the defensive group, has really shown progress in recent matches.”
Wilson said Camden must improve on this showing when they met Pickens in a rematch of last year’s third-round pairing won by the Blue Flame.
“In recent matches we had been flat in our play,” Wilsonsaid. “(Tuesday), I was pleased to see our intensity as a team improve.  We will need to step it up another notch for the next round.”
