Lady Dragons hold annual camp

Pictured here are the coaches, helpers, and campers who took part in the second annual West Union Lady Dragons “Generation Next” Summer Basketball Camp. held from June 1-4 at West Union High School.

A spirited game of “Dribble Knockout” highlighted the final day of girls basketball camp at West Union High School.

Though the turnout may not have been what Coach Jason Claytor was hoping for, that didn’t dampen the enthusiasm as Claytor and his staff hosted the second annual West Union Lady Dragons “Generation Next” Summer Basketball Camp, June 1-4 at the West Union High School gymnasium. A total of 19 young ladies in grades 2-7 took part in the four-day camp, which ran each day from 9-11:30 a.m.

“Overall, I thought we had a great week,” said Coach Claytor. “I thought every girl that showed up this week worked hard, listened well, and had fun. We saw major improvements throughout the week in every girl.”

During the four days, the girls spent time daily drilling on the fundamentals of basketball through station work and individual games, that all emphasized the basic skills of shooting, ball handling, passing, defense, and rebounding. The campers competed in Dribble Knockout, Free Throw Challenges, Hot Shots, and Obstacle Courses.

“The focus of the week was basic fundamentals,” added Claytor. “Ball handling was probably the one area that we focused on the most. We wanted to make sure we gave the girls things that they could work on at home.”

The following young ladies took part in the 2015 Lady Dragons camp: Reagan Kersey, Ashlah Staten, Chesnee Ayres, Sara Boldman, Lauren Hoop, Raylee Narnett, Emily Stapleton, Alexa Taylor, Skylan Pennington, MaKayla Setty, McKinzie Stout, Clare Stapleton, Kayden Francis, Molly Purcell, MaKenzie Fisher, Kendra Grooms, Lauren Grooms, Teslyn McClanahan, and Tallie McClanahan.

Winners of the individual contests were: Hot Shot Champion- Tallie McClanahan, Obstacle Course Champion- Molly Purcell, Free Throw Champion- McKinzie Stout, and Queen of the Court- MaKenzie Fisher.

Coaching staff and helpers on hand for the camp were Coach Jessica Thompson, Coach Eric Courtright, Haley Daniels, Kaley Daniels, Caitlyn Greathouse, Shannon Runyan, Sianna Mills, and Clayton Johnson.

“I want to thank all the kids that showed up and all of the parents who made the effort and got their kids to camp,” said Claytor. “That type of effort is what it takes to build and sustain a great program.”
