b-ball camp a success
By Misty Volaski
The Run with Coach Cotti Ojai
Girls' Basketball Camp, held at Matilija Junior High gymnasium
last week, proved to be a success.
There were 22 girls between the ages of 7 and 14 who participated
in the inaugural basketball camp.
Coaches included Nordhoff girls' basketball coach and teacher
Ted Cotti and ex-Ranger boys' basketball star Matt Murphy - who
has currently accepted the assistant boys' basketball position
at Villanova Preparatory. Current NHS Lady Ranger players Alison
Bennett, Sarah Nylander, Sasha O'Brien and Ariane Roach also
lent their teaching skills to the camp.
The main focus of the camp, said Cotti, was fundamentals, but
was also meant to be fun.
It included a camp free throw, three ball, one-on-one and five-on-five
championship. Every camper received a T-shirt and a basketball.
The camp was sponsored by Giorgio's Sports Deli.
Proceeds will benefit the Nordhoff girls' basketball program.
