Manchester hosts volleyball camp

From June 22-24, Manchester High School hosted a Summer Skills Volleyball Camp, welcoming girls from the host school plus Mason County High School, and led by Shawnee State head volleyball coach Susan Shelton.

In the box hitting drill, Manchester’s Kaitlyn Palmer works on her “killing” skills.

As the summer rapidly moves along, thoughts of fall sports have entered the minds of young athletes all over the area and that was evident in late June at Manchester High School as the Lady Hounds played host to 19 young ladies from two states in their 2015 Summer Skills Volleyball Camp.

The camp was under the direction of Shawnee State University head volleyball coach Susan Shelton, with the assistance of some of her college athletes, and ran from June 22-24 in the Manchester High School gymnasium.

During the three days of activity, the campers, who were from Manchester High School and Mason County High School, worked on numerous drills, designed to improve their individual skills, their offensive play, and their defensive play. “Susan did a really good job of getting a lot of these younger kids to come out of their shell,” commented Manchester’s Mark Johnson, who also assisted in the organization of the camp.

The campers who attended from Mason County were Katelyn Faul, Taylor Highfield, Kamryn Fryman, Grace Huber, Mallory Conrad, Breanna Cracraft, Jenna Thomas, Lexie Adams, Hannah Tune, Nikki Martinovic, Alyssa Cracraft, and Sarah Bravard.

From Manchester were Morgan Johnson, Summer Wilbur, Abigail McFarland, Kaitlyn Palmer, Katie Sandlin, Macy Huron, and Hannah Bundy.

The Lady Hounds also have hired a new varsity volleyball coach. At the July 1 Manchester Local School District Board meeting, Tabitha Spires was tabbed to lead the Lady Hounds in the fall of 2015. Shawn Palmer was chosen to take over the seventh and eighth grade volleyball programs.
