Young athletes stay active, learn games

Young Wolves returned to Clarkston schools for sports camp.
After a week of learning and playing sports, athletes left with a better understanding of the game and words of encouragement.
‘Get outside and play,? Varsity Baseball Coach Phil Price told his campers. ‘The more you play, the better you get.?
They don’t need nine players and a baseball diamond to play, he explained.
‘You can’t stop playing,? said Girls Varsity Basketball Coach Tim Wasilk. ‘If you want to be a good basketball player, keep playing. Coaches are always available if you need them.?
Wasilk said he saw lots of varsity potential from the girls during four days of Dare to Dream Clinic.
‘We had a great group of kids,? he said. ‘They improved throughout the week. There were a lot of talented girls. It’s just a matter of them continuing to play the game.?
The cagers played contests until one player remained to be crowned champion.
Champions from the Hot Shot tournament were Darby Durrant, Anne Gregor, and Anna Manilla.
Free-throw champions were Kayla Miller, Ashley Skaggs, and Hayley Durrant; Miller, Taylor Dellenge and Natalie Drumb in lightning; and Darby Durrant, Dellenge, and Delaney Kenny in the one-on-one competition.
Boys Varsity Lacrosse Coach Brian Kaminskas brought his Lacrosse Camp back for its third year.
More than 75 campers learned how to play the game and work on their form with varsity and college players.
