The statistics mentioned here are not official but were recorded by me at courtside and should be fairly accurate. There is a lot more to the game than scoring and several girls impressed with their skills and intangibles. A perfect example of this was Mckenzie Leigh who was on a team with several scorers and proved she could score with 13 points in the first game but was not called on to score as much in the remaining two games. However, she was a major contributor in these games with all around play and shows the ability to either play with her back to the basket or step out and knock down the jump shot.

Rick and Josh Bolus did a great job organizing and hosting this event. The event, as advertised was extremely busy all day with the exception of a lunch break. Each player had three games, team practices, stations, contests, and a guest speaker. The success of any camp depends on the players and this group played hard and expended a great effort all day. There were impressive players at all ages from seventh graders to seniors. 5-8 Sr. Lexi Graham Bullitt Central Shepherdsville was unable to play in the games today as she is recovering from an injury. However Lexi participated in the drills and impressed with her deadly shooting. 5-11 Sr. Casshai Greer Owensboro KY impressed with her athleticism in the paint. This was the first year of this event and hopefully it will continue as an annual event.
