Bulldogs hoping for post season run

Camden— The Camden Lady Bulldogs softball team got just what they needed for the post season: a end of the regular season surge to advance to the Class AAA playoffs.

The youthful Camden squad worked hard during the second half of the regular season to make it, and while the team fell short in the district playoffs, the experience will be something the young team can take into next Spring.

In the first game of the District III playoffs, the Lady Bulldogs faced a tough Woodruff team, and while Camden played well, they fell 4-3.

Forced into the elimination bracket by the loss, the Camden team faced Powdersville in a win or go home situation. And win the Lady Bulldogs did, eliminating Powdersville 11-5.

The win set up a match with Seneca with both teams looking to advance to the district finals. However, it was the Camden squad that came up short, losing to end their season.

Head Coach Lynn Looney said earlier in the Spring that her team always had a great attitude and never gave up.

“We are young and somewhat inexperienced this year,” she said recently.

Players who contributed this season for Camden include the team’s seniors, who were passing their knowledge and great attitudes to the younger players so the program will get back to its winning ways.

Those seniors are Hannah Baker, Anastasia Lane, Brittany McCoy, and Deja Wimberly.

The Camden High School Bulldogs baseball team also saw a good bit of success this season, advancing to the district finals in the Class AAA playoffs.

Camden started out strong with a 5-0 win over Clinton. A follow up game against Powdersville, however, did not turn out as well as the Bulldogs fell 9-1.

Camden rebounded to beat Clinton again - this time 11-4 - to advance to the district finals, where they lost to Powdersville, 3-1 in the second game after winning 2-0 in the first game.

Senior pitcher and third baseman Devin Beckley was one of the leaders on the team. Devin was all region and has signed with The Citadel.
