With one of the most successful high school volleyball programs in southern Ohio, Coach Katie Ragan and her staff took one of the steps necessary to keep the program rolling by holding their annual Youth Volleyball Camp for girls in grades 5-8. Aided by high school players who are in the midst of a 39-game Southern Hills Athletic Conference winning streak, the Lady Devils’ camp ran from May 31-June 2, with 23 girls participating along with 10 high school players to help out, along with JV coach Keisha Lewis, in an atmosphere conducive to instruction and also a fun introduction to the game of volleyball.

“At the camp, we worked on skill development and had some fun competitions,” said Ragan. “There were passing and serving drills, a three on three tournament, Queen of the Court competition, and Survivor competitions. The high school girls also did some demonstrations.”
“We try to make the camp fun and get the kids interested in playing volleyball.”
The following is a list of athletes who attended the three-day camp: Shelby Thatcher, Sierra Kendall, Myla Toole, Kirsten Campbell, Shelby Bingaman, Olivia Wright, Keetyn Hupp, Kendal Sullivan, Aimee Waits, Brooklyn Tolle, Calee Campbell, Jaylynn Collett, Sydney Collett, Meleah Hall, Chelsey Conley, Lauren Eiterman, Wylie Shipley, Brea Stout, Daisy Holt, Jadyn Wright, Samara Myers, Karlie Kennedy, and Natalie Ragan.
High school players on hand to assist were: Madison Jenkins, Maddie Toole, Charlee Louden, Sydney Kendall, Abby Campton, Adison Wright, Avery Harper, Brooklyn Stout, Abbi Stacy, and Cortney Brown.
