Double Trouble – Best Friends Katie Camp and Katie Kabbes

Raleigh, N.C. March 2008. By Mike Miazga. “Cardinal Gibbons High School (Raleigh, N.C.) girls coach Jim Freeman had a feeling about Katie Camp and Katie Kabbes. So much so that he purposely issued uniform No. 3 to Camp and No. 4 to Kabbes when they were freshmen. ‘I knew they would be special when they got here,’ said Freeman, who completed his 17th year as coach in 2007. ‘I numbered them so they would fit in with the rest of the retired jerseys. Those two numbers were the last of the single-digit jerseys we had. It’s kind of like the New York Yankees and they are kind of like Babe Ruth and Lou Gerhig. It was so obvious they would be the two best players we have ever had.’ More from Volleyball Magazine.
