Campbell County was down two games in a best-of-5 but battled back.
The Camels trailed 12-0 in the first game but battled back.
And in the clinching game, Campbell County (22-14) scored the final eight points to come back from six down in a 19-25, 23-25, 25-14, 25-17, 15-13 win over Scott (27-13) in the Region 10 final at Montgomery County on Thursday.
“They really, really fought back and that’s something that we’ve done a lot this year is fight from behind,” Campbell County coach Kimberlee Nemcek said.
Junior outside hitter Emily Rich led the Camels with 17 kills, and senior midfielder Dixie Schultz added 16.
“I just felt like the girls knew they worked so hard all year and it was something they didn’t want to throw away,” Nemcek said, “The first game we came out down, 12-0. Scott came out swinging really hard.”
It was the fifth meeting between these teams this season, and Campbell County had won three of the first four matches vs. the Eagles.
