Centennial's Williams pleased with talent level at camp
The numbers were big last week at Centennial’s volleyball camp with 170 future Lady Spartans participating.
“It was a good camp,” Centennial volleyball coach Julie Williams said. “We had a good turnout and all the kids had fun.”
The coaches and staff used all three gyms for the game. The campers were divided into three groups with incoming third- through fifth-graders in one gym; incoming sixth- and seventh-graders in another gym and the incoming eight- and ninth-graders in the main gym.
Williams said the youngest group of campers learned the basics and fundamentals of volleyball. She added that the most important thing was for this group to have fun at camp.
“Our incoming freshmen are pretty talented,” Williams said. “I know they play a lot of sports beyond volleyball, they are a very athletic group. I’m excited to have them as freshmen this year.”
The incoming eighth-grade class was equally as talented as the incoming freshman class according to Williams.
“There are some talented players in that group,” Williams said. “I didn’t get to see many of the younger players but all of the coaches seemed pleased with the girls and how hard they worked.”
