Lady Pioneers prepare future at basketball camp

STILLWATER, Okla. — The Stillwater Lady Pioneers girls basketball head coach position may be vacant. That didn’t stop the Lady Pioneers from having a decent turnout at its annual basketball camp, which concluded Friday at Pioneer Fieldhouse.

“We had a lot of girls walk in,” said Kendra League, assistant basketball coach. “With the late notice, I think some people thought it was canceled. We still had a pretty good turnout despite the circumstances.”

Clay Stephens took a job in Weatherford last week before the camp was to start. League, who is entering her sixth season as an assistant coach led the camp and said it was great getting a look at the future of the program.

“We had a lot of girls from around here, that I’m looking forward to seeing progress and coach them later on down the road,” League said.

Girls that were entering first through eighth grade participated. The camp focused on the basic fundamentals — dribbling, shooting, passing and ball handling. The older kids competed in a 3-on-3 tournament. League said she noticed a lot of improvement at the end of camp.

“There were a lot of girls who improved,” League said. “I did the ball handling drill. There were some girls that improved by 30 seconds. Every girl improved throughout the camp. It was really fun to watch.”

The camp ended with an awards ceremony and each child received a shirt and a basketball.
