As teams settled in for their day 2 of camp at the BCAT Hoopfest, the excitement and competition was in the air. Even though it’s just summer action, it was good to see matchups that may normally not take place. From public schools to private schools competing, to small schools to bigger schools going at it, the girls from this state get after it no matter who lines up across from them. Fans were really in attendance today and none of these squads who competed didn’t disappoint . Girls were hitting their strides as shot after shot found the bottom of the net. What I loved the most about today, kids were getting after it on the defensive end. There was a lot of noise happenin and definitely energy from benches as girls climbed into one another. At the end of the day, it was all fun and games. Iron sharpens iron and our young ladies truly got better in more ways than one.
