Maggie Speaks, more than anybody, knew how big a deal it was. As she looked up at her framed red number 3 Makedones Axiou jersey being placed alongside game jerseys worn by other Camden High graduates who played professional sports, Speaks could not help but think about the company she was joining. With parents who are both teachers at Camden High School, a father, a grandfather, a great-uncle and two uncles who were all stellar student-athletes for the Bulldogs, the 5-foot-10 setter for her Greek professional volleyball team is well-versed in the school’s athletic history.
