The Bucs are coming off two solid wins against Belmont and Lipscomb at home over the weekend, before falling at Virginia Tech. The Bucs have received strong play from the bottom part of their lineup as senior Andra Voinea (Brasov, Romania) leads the team with an 8-3 (4-0 A-Sun) in dual play.
Campbell enters the weekend with an 8-4 overall record, including a perfect 4-0 mark in A-Sun play. Karolina Chernaya leads the team with a 10-2 overall mark and a perfect 4-0 record in A-Sun play, while playing mostly in the No. 2 position. Senior Lisa Sutton has also been solid for the Camels as she owns a 9-3 overall record and a 3-1 A-Sun mark.
