Several campers made their names known Tuesday by working extra hard and playing the game the right way.  Including:

Brady Trombley (Blue division).  Says Coach Bryce:  “Brady’s four ball team showed significant improvement today, they beat their previous high score with each consecutive game they played. Brady also played great defense in his 5 on 5 games, communicating off the ball and shutting down opposing players.”

From Red Division Coach Beth Mac: “My player of the day is Braden Kusma because of his fantastic attitude and hustle. Even when his team is down he takes accountability and gets things done. Great leader and great hustle.”

Also from Red Division Coach, Jake Thomas:  “Xavier Lowe was my player of the day because he outworked the entire camp in the blitz.  He really pushed it hard and on top of that he showed great sportsmanship today by shaking other camper’s hands and saying good game.”

Finally, from Coach Geo, “I was very impressed with Anna Orow. She is very fundamentally sound and is always the first player breaking on offense or getting back on defense. She does all the little things that helps a team win.  She was outstanding today.”
