CAMPBELL OH- Wednesday night volleyball action had the Campbell Memorial Red Devils (2-3) defending home court against the (3-2) Sebring Trojans who are in the midst of a three-game road stand. This was a non-conference exhibition between members of the MVAC Scarlet and Gray Tiers.
Set one was led entirely by the Red Devils who jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead before Sebring got on the board. Sebring was led most of the night by their kills leader No. 1 Blake Thomas who had some absolutely lethal spikes on the night. Thomas helped lead her squad back into a competitive set one that stayed around a three-point score difference after the initial Red Devils lead. Campbell would find the momentum around the midway point and cruise home to victory in set one 25-13.
Set two was much closer as Sebring jumped on the board quickly scoring the first point, but they were answered immediately by Campbell who quickly returned the favor. This was a seesaw battle in set two in which neither squad was able to seize momentum. The two teams kept within one or two points and forced it to a tied game at 23 each before Campbell made some great plays to close out the second set of the night.
Set three was what would be called a volleyball clinic as Campbell could do no wrong being led by their kills leader No. 12 Kendall Brunn who not only added on to her kills total in this third set but was dominating with blocks at the net as well. Campbell would go up by a dozen before Sebring had their first point of the set and from their it was lights out. Campbell would allow just one more point in the set and would take home their third and final set of the night 25-2 over Sebring.
Both teams moved to (3-3) on the season after this game. All of Campbell’s wins this season have come on 3-0 wins at home. They will play host to Champion Thursday night at 6:30PM. Sebring will finish off their three-game road stand against Mineral Ridge Thursday night at 6:30PM.
