Short in height, but long on heart.There are a lot worse things that a team can be.Having lost starting center Chelsea Reynolds for the season, due to a knee injury, the Camden High girls’ basketball team lost their only true post player last week. And when the Lady Bulldogs were down 17 points midway through the third quarter to a taller Lakewood team on the Mike Culp Court on Tuesday, it looked as if the end result might be predictable.But a funny thing happened on the way to a blowout victory for the visiting Lady Gators. Camden dug deep and climbed out of its hole to draw within two points of Lakewood in the closing 98 seconds of play in what would end up being a 42-39 loss for the hostesses.The comeback and the effort to close the gap to a one-possession game left CHS head coach Natalie Jeffcoat in admiration of her undersized team.“Great, great effort,” Jeffcoat said, while managing a smile after her team fell to 1-3 in Region 6-AAA play.
