A tradition continued last week at North Adams High School as Lady Devils varsity coach Rob Davis and his staff hosted their annual Girls Basketball Camp. This year’s camp ran for three days and included young ladies from grades K-8, on hand to improve their skills and knowledge of the game. There were 63 girls participating in the 2014 camp, the largest attendance the camp has ever seen.
A majority of the camp time was spent on the basic fundamentals of basketball, especially with the younger groups who worked extremely hard on their dribbling and passing skills. For the older campers, it was an opportunity to sharpen some skills before they delved into the world of summer leagues and shootouts.
Taking part in the 2014 Lady Devils Basketball Camp were: (K-2) Addison Shupert, Ava Pistole, Emma Pistole, Layna Pistole, Jacee Davis, Natalie Ragan, Aubrey Gill, Carly Garrison, Hannah Easterling, Hannah Hesler, Aulbrea Meade, Katelynn Boerger, Taylor Shelton, Hunter Grooms, Sylvia Beighle, McKenna Shelton, and Elizabeth Easterling.
(3-4) Kenlie Jones, Karlie Kennedy, Harlee Brand, Jayden Teriaca, Calee Campbell, Brea Stout, Libby Meyers, Paige Harrison, Olivia Wright, Tori Staggs, Taylor Staggs, Sydney Figgins, Sierra Kendall, Kendal Sullivan, Myla Toole, Laura Hesler, Morgan Shupert, Arenna Goon, Lauren Eiterman, Keetyn Hupp, and Grace Pence.
(5-6-7) Jaden Smith, Braylie Jones, Karissa Buttelwerth, Alyssa Mays, DeLaney Harper, Marah Call, Abby Gast, Ainsley Grooms, Faith Howell, Brooklyn Tolle, Sydney Collett, Bethany Merritt, Savannah Waters, Alaina Eiterman, Carolyn Shupert, Mary Sonner, Grace McDowell, Christin Young, Havalah Gormen, Abbi Stacy, Jordan Yoder, Courtney Brown, Brianna Piatt, and Kaitlyn Shreffler.
No camp can be successful without the valuable assistance of the program’s JV and varsity players. The following members of the North Adams girls varsity program were on hand last week to lend their assistance: Lakyn Hupp, Avery Harper, Charlee Louden, Brooklyn Stout, Addison Wright, Taylor Hesler, Madee Shipley, McKayla Raines, Brooklyn Wylie, Caitlin Young, Allison Harper, Josie McDowell, Brooklyn Young, Madison Jenkins, Jade Spriggs, Taylor Wylie, Staci Dinsmore, Kayla Baker, Rylee Copas, Cassie Davis, and Karly Boerger.
