Sophomore Kyleigh Camp drove a two-RBI double through the middle and into the outfield to break up a scoreless game Wednesday night against Franklin County. Camp’s twp RBIs proved to be just enough for the Raiderettes as they held on to top visiting Franklin County 3-0 on Senior Night.
Camp helped her older sister Kelsey Camp, along with teammate Sarah Raby — the only two MCHS seniors — close out their prep careers on a good note at home. Both Moore County seniors were honored before the game.

Kyleigh Camp scored on a single by Kate Bowles to put the Raiderettes ahead 3-0.
After a walk and a single in the top of the seventh inning gave Franklin County hope, MCHS pitcher Kasey Harvey got a strike out and a fly out to end the game. Harvey went the distance for Moore County, pitching a shutout while fanning nine Rebelettes. The walk in the seventh inning was the lone free pass.
Moore County finished with eight hits, led by Kyleigh Camp’s two.
The win avenged a 7-2 loss to Franklin County way back on March 14.
