Lady Blues basketball hosts annual summer camp

Graham High School and the Lady Blues basketball program hosted its annual summer camp this week. The camp was Monday-Wednesday at the high school in the mornings and was conducted by the Lady Blues coaching staff. 

There was a solid turnout for this year’s basketball camp.

“We had 54 campers grades four through nine.  I was very pleased with the turnout this year,” Lady Blues head coach Ky Graham said. “We worked a lot of fundamentals, and played a lot competitive games and I believe the girls had fun.”

At the end of the camp the coaching staff handed out awards to the girls that performed at the highest level. The Hot Shot champion was Reagan Bullard. The Offensive MVP was Chloe Menard and the Defensive MVP was Anna Wales. The Fighting Heart award went to Georgia Martin.

The coaching staff was out in force for the camp and all hands were on deck to help coach the younger girls and help them have some fun with the sport of basketball.

“I really had great help with Sarah Curd, Angela Tate, Shannon Weaver, Chrysti Mercer and Misty Mills,” Graham said. “Having great assistants is key to having a great program and I am very blessed to have them with us.”

Graham was pleased by what he saw at the camp and is very optimistic about the future of Lady Blues basketball.

“I was very encouraged with not only the girls work ethic, but also the talent level at this camp was very high,” Graham said. “The future of Lady Blue Basketball is looking very good.”

The Blues return most of their girls for the 2016-2017 season. The team’s experience in the playoffs last year will provide the team momentum and needed experience, as they look to take the program to the next level.
