Ford cancels girls junior high camp

BOONEVILLE – Northeast Mississippi Community College Lady Tiger head basketball coach Ricky Ford cancelled the second junior girls’ camp for grades fourth-sixth that was set to hit the hardwood on June 11-13.

“Due to lack of enrollment we are going to cancel the junior high girls basketball camp”, said Ford.

After taking a year off during the remodeling of Bonner Arnold Coliseum, the Lady Tiger basketball camps were scheduled to go into full force for the summer of 2009.

Unfortunately, taking last year off may have hurt this years junior high enrollment explained Ford, “I regret that we are doing this but not having camp last year really hurt our enrollment.”

However, Ford will still host the junior high girls’ camp for seventh and eighth graders that is set to kick off on June 4-6 at Bonner Arnold Coliseum.

Northeast wraps up its Lady Tiger basketball camp season with senior high girls (grades 9-12) and individual/team camp on July 6-8, and applications for the senior high camp are still being accepted.
