On Thursday, Roger Smoak’s troops close the regular season with a road match at Wilson.As for the win over the Gamecocks, Camden swept all five singles matches to put this one away early on an afternoon in which the guests had several different faces in new places on their ladder.“We were missing some people for different reasons,” Smoak said. “This was a good opportunity to move some of our players up.”Staying put at first singles was Jo Jo Tiller, who raised his season record to 13-0 in singles with a pair of 6-0 victories over Chris Galloway.
