The Camden High volleyball team celebrated its annual "Dig Pink" night with a sweep over Irmo and Cardinal Newman last Wednesday night inside the Dog Pound at CHS.

The Lady Bulldogs, the fourth-ranked team in class AAA, fell to Irmo in game one, 25-23, before taking the second game, 28-26, and then the tie-breaker, 25-14.

"We had a slow start in game one, but picked it up near the end to make it close," said CHS head coach Paige Wilson, whose team pulled out game two with a strong closing surge before running away with the tie-breaker.

"Irmo is a much taller team and we had to play smart and aggressive to get points," Wilson said. "Irmo is the type of team that can have big momentum shifts and they are very capable at the net, with two players committed to Division I college programs.

"I was proud of the way we hung in there to pull out a tough match. The team rallied together to pull off the win."

After getting past Cardinal Newman, 25-16, in game one, the Lady Bulldogs had to put in extra work before coming away with a 32-20 win in a game two marathon.

"We had a solid first game, but game two was quite a battle," Wilson said. "We relaxed too much and struggled to put the ball down for points. I was happy with the win so it didn't go to game three."

In the two matches, Camden’s Maggie Speaks had 14 kills, 27 assists and eight blocks while Kelsey Hutto had 11 kills, 17 digs and 20 passes to target against Cardinal Newman.

Lindsey Cobb had 16 kills and two aces with Amber Jackson dishing out 22 assists while having four aces in the nightcap.

In addition to the victories, CHS, again, had a big night in terms of donation in the fight against breast cancer.

"Our third annual Dig Pink match was quite a success," Wilson said. "Camden High School and our community rallied together in support of something bigger than volleyball for this event. We would like to offer a ‘thank you’ to everyone for their support."

NC rolls past Central:

If NC defeated McBee ans Chesterfield defeated Lewisville on Tuesday, the Lady Knights would meet Chesterfield in a tie-breaker for the Region 3-A title Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at Buford High.

Tiffany Rogers helped lead the way against Central with 33 assists, four digs and a kill. Elexis Ross had 11 kills and seven digs while Madeline Pate added six kills, six digs and four aces. Cassady Robinson contributed seven kills, three digs and two aces for the winners.

The North Central volleyball team showed no signs of a letdown from last week's conference win over Chesterfield as the Lady Knights swept past Central, 25-11, 25-8 and 25-18, Monday night.
