Lady Yoe drops matches to Lexington and Rogers

The Cameron Lady Yoe are in the midst of a rough patch in their season.  Continuing into 20-3A play last Friday, Cameron had lost three consecutive district matches without taking a set.  The ladies appear to still be in a bit of a funk, with losses to Lexington (0-3) on Friday and district leading Rogers on Tuesday (0-3) to extend the streak to 15 straight sets.  The ladies still have 6 more district matches to start something up and build momentum.


“We still have some games and we can compete and fight for a spot,” said Cameron coach Kamol Nohe.  “We just have to get the kids focused and ready to play.”


Cameron will host Franklin on Friday (4:30) before traveling to Hearne on Tuesday (5:00).
