The Camden High School volleyball program will host its annual "Dig Pink" Match on Wednesday, Oct. 9 when Cardinal Newman and Irmo come into the Dog Pound for a non-conference tri-match.
SUMTER --- So much for that post-rivalry letdown.
It may not be on the same scale as an overzealous reveler on New Year's Day, but Camden, too, could be feeling the effects of a hangover.
After having opened conference play with losses to A.C. Flora and River Bluff, the Camden girls' tennis team found their way into the win column with a 4-3 road victory on Tuesday against Dreher at the Columbia Tennis Center.
After a wet and relatively cool summer, Mother Nature brought the heat just in time for the cross country season.
