It was a road which Camden had been down twice before this season and each time, the Bulldogs arrived at a dead end.
Seeing as how Dreher starts three players who check in at better than 6-feet tall, it puts the onus on the Lady Blue Devils' opponents to make the best of their looks at the basket. In all likelihood, the first shot may well be the only one each trip down the floor.
Looks don't come much clearer than this.
Just when Camden thought it had a big fish on the end of its line, the Bulldogs left it get away.
Facing the meat of the Chapin order in what amounted to the bottom of the ninth inning, Camden was unable to complete the upset of the second-ranked Eagles.
Coming off a one-sided loss to powerful Dreher three nights earlier, Camden girls' basketball coach Natalie Jeffcoat was interested to see how her team would respond with soon-to-be 4A entry Westwood in town for a rainy Friday night contest.
When Westwood came out in a 2-3 zone and stayed in that defensive scheme throughout the night, Camden head coach Ron McKie must have felt like a kid who found a leftover gift from Santa behind the tree.
Camden's players and several of its fans seated in the rows behind the Lady Bulldogs' bench found out just what Natalie Jeffcoat's breaking point was during Friday's game with River Bluff.
For better or for worse, the Camden boys' basketball team will not play in a post-Christmas tournament.
Camden kicked off Region 4-AAA action with a 65-50 loss to host A.C. Flora in a Tuesday night contest played in Columbia.
Avenging their only loss in three starts this season, the Camden boys basketball team handed host Lakewood a 52-42 defeat on Wednesday night in Sumter.
After putting in countless hours during what was a wet summer, the Camden High girls' basketball team reaped the rewards of their hard work on a late autumn night when drops of rain fell from the sky.
If you are old enough to remember when a record would skip and play the same part of the song over and over again on a record player, you can probably sympathize with the plight which Camden head coach Ron McKie found himself in on Tuesday.
Camden High School senior Madison Grant and junior teammate Morgan Wilson were named to the 2013 All-Region 4-AAA Volleyball Team as selected by the conference's seven head coaches.
