The Lady Yoe prevailed in four games 17-25, 25- 19, 16-25, and 14-25. In each game the Lady Eagles were very competitive until they hit a lull. In each game lost, Lexington allowed Cameron to reel off four to six points in a row after being tied or in the lead.

Game 1- Lexington was always behind, but just one or two points, until Cameron ran off four points in a row, lost a point, got a point, and then ran off four more points to put the game out of reach. Unofficially Johna Alford had four kills and a block in the game. Karley Wren and Aleece Moerbe each had a kill.

Game 2 -Cameron served first and Aleece Moerbe got the point with a kill. The teams swapped points until Moerbe ran off six points in a row to get Lexington out to a nice lead. The teams swapped points again until Alford served for the second time. She ran off six points, the last three being aces, before Cameron could get the serve back at 23- 19. Cameron hit the ball into the net for 24-19. Brittany Nichol served and Karley Wren provided the kill to end game 2.

Lexington was playing with the state ranked team until they got called for a rotation penalty. Six points later the game was essentially over. Alford did get four more kills. Wren had two, and Moerbe a swat.

Game 4 - Once again, Lexington let Cameron run off points in a row. This time it was eight in a row, followed by the final four in a row for a convincing win for the Yoe. Meghann Wrinkle had an ace for Lexington. Alford and Nichol had kills.

Lexington is now 1-1 in district play.

The JV Green and Gold each lost to Cameron in two games.
