VANDALIA – On Thursday, the Lady Aviators Basketball camp came to a close after four days of success. The camp was run by volunteer coaches and players on the BHS women’s basketball team.

Head coach Molly Bardonaro was impressed with the turnout this year.

“We continue to reach new goals. We had 86 campers come out this year, which is an all-time high,” Bardonaro said. “We are going to continue to reach for more.”

The camp stresses the importance of fundamentals and basic skills of basketball, while encouraging campers to work hard and have fun.

“The girls have really surprised me with their work ethic this year,” said senior Willow Knight. “You really witness them grow as players as the camp goes on.”

The success of this camp has the community in good spirits regarding the future of the Lady Aviators basketball program.
