Fresh off a split in the UNF Holiday Classic, Campbell Women’s Basketball (6-4, 1-0) returns home in preparation for the perennial Big South conference favorites; the Liberty Lady Flames.
Their recent trip was historic, traveling on a chartered flight for the first time in program history. For more on the sights and sounds of the journey, check out the video from GoCamels.com.
Campbell departed from Harnett Regional Jetport on Friday, practiced on the UNF campus and got the chance to briefly explore Jacksonville, Fla. before playing Central Arkansas and UNF over the past weekend, featuring a 66-55 win over the Osprey on ESPN3.
What made the experience special was when senior forward Amanda Coffer experienced her first ever trip in a plane, capturing her emotions on social media before departing Friday afternoon.
It was rather fitting then when Coffer played rather large in the Lady Camels’ victory over host UNF on Sunday, posting her four double-double of the season with 16 points and a career-high 13 rebounds.

After winning their sixth game over the last nine, the Lady Camels enter the meat of their conference schedule with a three-game home stand starting against Liberty followed by UNC Asheville (Sat. Jan. 2) and Gardner-Webb (Jan. 4).
The Lady Camels were accompanied to Jacksonville by Campbell Director of Athletics Bob Roller and his wife, Carolyn.
