Campbell came out of the break with fire. they would eventually cut the Trojan lead down to two. However, the Trojans pushed back as the second half went on. Thanks in part to Devyn Reggi who had a phenomenal second half. The Trojans led 48-38 with 2:40 left. Campbell proceeded to go on a 13-2 run to cap off their comeback win.

Campbell’s lone senior Cayla Marshall willed her team to victory and scored a game-high 25 points for the Devils. Shuger also finished in double figures with 15 points. Sims added an important 7 points to the cause.

For Sebring, Reggi finished a great night with 20 points. Blake Thomas was also in double figures for the Trojans with 14 points.
