“Credit our girls to do enough to win,” Greenville coach, Rachael Kerns said following the game. “At the end of the night that ‘W’ is what we are looking for.”

Camacho had her second quarter of the night drilling two triples to lead the Lady Wave to an 11-6 fourth quarter score to earn the win over the stubborn Lady Skyhawks.

Greenville defensive specialist Avery Baumann went down Monday night in the Lady Wave 55-50 comeback win over Indian Lake with 03.9 seconds left in the game with an injury and was not in uniform in the Wednesday night win.

“It’s going to take time to adjust,” Kerns stated. “It’s kind of a new season – it’s kind of a new team. We have to learn to play with what we have and move forward.”
