Lady Pioneers get look at future

STILLWATER, Okla. — The last two seasons the Stillwater Lady Pioneers’ volleyball team has been pretty successful as it qualified for the Class 6A state tournament. During the last four days, the Lady Pioneers got an early look at who will try to lead them to state a couple years down the road during the Lady Pioneer volleyball camp.

“(It was) a lot of fun,” Webber said. “There was a lot of learning going on. It’s neat to see so many of these girls come out. Had a lot of coaches to have a low coach to camper ratio and give them as many touches as we can.”

Campers learned the fundamental skills of serving, passing, setting, attacking, blocking and individual defense. Webber said getting to work these girls at a young age is very valuable.

“They grow up really quickly and we can see what they will do for the high school program,” Webber said. “We got some girls in the next session coming in from out of town. They know the work we do in Stillwater. They like to stay in the high level competition and learn some new skills that they can take back home.”

At the end of the camp day, campers competed in three-on-three games. Webber said the success of the program has helped boost interest in the summer camp.

“Not everyone can play club all year round,” Webber said. “So having a camp and getting them started younger and giving them as much touches as possible are all really great things. We try to keep it fun for the younger ladies. We have a blast all week long.”

Along with Webber, SHS alumna Courtney Carman, Stillwater assistant coach Jarne Carroll, Bishop Kelley graduate and an Oklahoma State physical education major Zoe Stinchcomb and OSU volleyball club member Raelee Perry also coached.

The Lady Pioneers open the 2014 season on Aug. 12 against Oklahoma Bible Academy.
