Winning breeds interest in any high school sports program and that is definitely the case for Coach Katie Ragan and her North Adams Lady Devils volleyball program. Coach Ragan and her staff have created a perpetual winning program at the high school level and when the time comes around for their annual summer Pee-Wee volleyball camp, the amount of interest generated equates to a nice turnout.
The 2015 Pee-Wee Camp took place on May 18, 20, and 21 and was overseen by Ragan, JV coach Keisha Lewis, and junior high coach Jaylnn McClellan and involved girls in grades 5-8. The campers spent their three days working hard on the fundamentals of the game of volleyball, all the while having fun and enjoying the camaraderie of being in camp with their friends and classmates.
