Lady Dragons reacclimate while falling in splits sets to Savannah
Following a six-month hiatus due to COVID-19, Cameron High School sports fans got to see their first live action with the Lady Dragon Volleyball Team hosting Savannah Saturday morning.
Despite limited seating in order to adhere to social distancing guidelines recommended by the Clinton County Health Department, a ruckus crowd filled CHS gymnasium to watch the Lady Dragons fall in split sets 15-6, 15-9 Cameron and 10-5.
“We need to learn a few things we can’t from just scrimmaging ourselves,” Cameron senior outside hitter Karlie Fletcher. “I think I did OK serving, but I need to work on my passing. We just need to show some teamwork and make everyone feel like family.”
For junior setter Nattalie Garr one of the more unique experiences was play in front of a crowd for the first time. Although social distancing measures were in place, for the first time in months cheers filled the CHS gymnasium.
With Savannah being a Midland Empire Conference opponent, Cameron coach Addie Floyd said she did not show much during last Saturday’s scrimmage. With the team returning a bulk of their starting lineup, Floyd said the focus Saturday was shaking off the rust with many athletes not competing in any athletic endeavor since March.
“I’m pretty excited. We are not on the same level as we were last year at the end of the year, but we’re fairly close,” Floyd said. “We can build on that. We have a new freshman on varsity, but other than that it’s the same team as last year.”
