With nine matches left to play, it’s a good bet that the Campbell County High School varsity volleyball team will meet or surpass last year’s win total of four.
The Lady Cougars have a 3-16 overall record after beating Wartburg earlier this week.
“We’re creeping up on our first district win. We’ve just got to be able to close a match out,” said Campbell County coach David Seals.
Campbell County took Knox Halls to the wire Thursday night, scoring 18, 20 and 21 points in three games.
“We pushed them,” said Seals.
“I’m hoping, with how we are playing competitively in our district, that we can’t be considered an easy win now.”
Seniors Amber Meadows and Lyndsi Tomblin lead the major statistical categories for Campbell County. Tomblin has 22 kills this season, while Meadows leads the team in aces (21) and service points (37).
Alaina McCarty, a junior who shares captain duties with Meadows, is among the team leaders in all categories. She is third in kills (19), second in aces (18) and third in service points (33). Chelsea Monday is ranked second on the team in kills (21), while Niki Ward is third in aces (17).
Junior varsity statistical leaders are Olivia Hammons (23 kills), Alyssa Miller (20 aces) and Whitney Sawyer (33 service points).
