Playing on its biggest stage of the young season, Lugoff-Elgin looked every bit the part of a performer ready for their turn in the spotlight.After having opened the volleyball season with three consecutive losses, the Lady Demons reversed that trend by adding their second and third wins of week by sweeping past both Lexington and host Camden inside a noisy Dog Pound last Thursday night.L-E kicked off what would be a special night by downing Lexington, 26-24 and 25-12, in the evening’s first pairing. Camden followed suit by outlasting the 4A Wildcats, 25-21, 25-22 and 25-22, in what served as the opening act for the night’s headliner.In what was a precision-like effort, the Lady Demons sliced through their cross-river rivals in the first game, playing run-and-hide with the lead in what became a 25-8 romp. L-E looked to follow the same script in the second game, racing to an 18-10 lead before the Lady Bulldogs rebounded with a flurry to go on top, 24-23 and would be serving for the win, only to see the visitors close the evening with a 3-0 run for a 26-24 victory.For a week which started with a victory which got the Lady Demons into the win column for the first time, second-year head coach Jessica Mullins said Thursday was her team’s best performances thus far.“Most certainly,” she said after beating her former high school coach, Camden’s Paige Wilson, for the second time in three regular season pairings.
