Cameron Ends Lady Eagles’ Season
Lexington and Cameron met Friday afternoon in Rockdale to decide the third and final place from District 27-AA. Cameron won in four games 14-25, 25-19, 21-25, 23-25 in a hard fought match after game one. Johna Alford led the Lady Eagles with 20 kills, seven blocks, and six digs.

The loss ends Lexington’s volleyball season and sends Cameron into the 2A state playoffs as the third place team from District 27-AA.
Game 1- Lexington started slowly, very slowly as Cameron got out to a 15-5 lead. Lexington never recovered, losing 14-25.
Game 2- This game was an inverse of game 1. Lexington got out to a quick 4-0 lead, including an ace by Madison Bexley. Alford had four kills and Moerbe three kills in the game. Karley Wren had a block and Scantlin had an ace. Lexington used the big lead to cruise to a 25-19 win.
Game 3 - The game started off evenly, but Cameron got out to a three point lead. Wren then served five points in a row to pull Lexington into the lead. Meghann Wrinkle got a block and Alford had three kills. Cameron rallied and won the game 21-25.
Game 4-With Lexington facing elimination, they fought hard the fourth game. The teams bounced back and forth with each team leading by a point or two. When the dust cleared, Cameron had prevailed 23-25 and the Lady EGal season was over.
Lexington says good bye to Megan Scantlin, the only senior on the squad. The remaining varsity members return next year. The number of returnees should give Lexington a very good chance of making the playoffs in the 2012 season.
