Vardaman youngsters participate in Lady Tiger hoop camp
BOONEVILLE – Northeast Mississippi Community College’s women’s hoops program concluded another successful summer with its annual Lady Tiger Basketball Camp for future hard-court star being held June 25-27 at legendary Bonner Arnold Coliseum.
The three-day event was open to any girl in the fifth through eighth grades. Several experienced area coaches aided Northeast head coach Brian Alexander in providing instruction during the camp.
Multiple members of the 2013-14 Lady Tiger hoops team as well as new players for the 2014-15 squad were also in attendance to help direct the different daily drills and tasks.
Local athletes attending this summer’s camp included, Jayla Culpepper, Mykilah Williams and Kayleigh Hill, all of Vardaman and Vardaman girls basketball coach Deanna Winter.
The camp was conducted under the watchful eye of Northeast Lady Basketball Coach Brian Alexander, who holds the distinction of being the only MACJC coach to take two different programs to the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) National Tournament.
Alexander, a New Albany native, carried Northeast’s men in 1994-95 and the Itawamba Community College men’s team on two separate occasions – 2006-07 and 2007-08.
While at the Lady Tiger hoop camp athletes learned the fundamentals of basketball while establishing the mental aspect of the game through sportsmanship, leadership and citizenship.
Girls also had the opportunity to work on ball handling, dribbling, shooting, passing, defense and other essential techniques while participating in a fun and relaxing environment.
Campers concluded each afternoon with a set of scrimmage games that put routines and capabilities that were refined during practice sessions to the test in a competitive manner.
Attendance was solid once again at Northeast’s function that is dedicated to helping area children further develop their skills and capabilities inside the gymnasium.
The following are those from Calhoun County who participated in the 2014 Lady Tiger Basketball Camp.
