The Campbell Lady Camels rolled into Hayti Thursday to take on the Lady Indians in both varsity and junior varsity volleyball action. In the varsity game, despite starting out well, Hayti came up short on the scoreboard against Campbell in three sets, 25-21, 15-25, 16-26.

As noted, the Lady Indians came out of the gate with some gritty play, taking an early 5-0 lead. With the score at 10-5, 12-7 and 14-9, Hayti was in control, serving well and controlling the net, to go along with setting up the offense on almost each possession.

The Lady Camels did make a mid-set run to put the score at 18-15, but Hayti responded with big serves from Quameria Johnson and stout defensive efforts, including an acrobatic dig from Asia Burden. Campbell made another run at Hayti, but the Lady Indians held on and took the first set.

The first half of the third set featured some outstanding play from the Lady Indians. The set was knotted up at 11-11 when the Lady Camels stepped up their play to get the victory.

The junior varsity squad fell to Campbell in two sets, 25-12, 25-10.
