Future stars polish skills at Warwick Girls Hoops Camp
This year’s Warwick Girls Basketball Camp attracted 46 girls, who worked hard improving their skills while having plenty of fun times last Monday through Thursday, June 17-20 in the Warwick High School gymnasium.
The camp was open to girls entering third through ninth grades in the 2013-14 school year. Assisting Warwick head girls basketball coach Amy Derr as counselors were alumni Megan Hunt and Meredith Michel, along with current players Maddie Toney, Hannah Shue, Kate Martin, Alexa Mohler, Lindsey Lefever, Destiny Butler, Katie Hipple, (team manager) Taylor Croyle and Morgan Haines.
Campers were divided into two groups, with the little players (grades 3-5) in one and big players (grades 6-9) in another.
Taking home Camper of the Week honors were Amber Houser in the younger group and Abby Garman among the older girls.
The four players in grades 3-5 who earned Camper of the Day accolades were Rachel Horner (Monday), Jess Williamson (Tuesday), Sam Rogers (Wednesday) and Tanner Armstrong (Thursday). In grades 6-9, Abby Rogers (Monday), Mikayla Baker (Tuesday), Emily Williamson (Wednesday) and Hannah Citsay (Thursday) earned Camper of the Day recognition.
