The 26th Annual Oho River Basketball Camp wrapped up Thursday with championship competitions in The Pit and a Parade of Champions in the RvHS Auditorium.
Named to the All-Camp Team (MVPs) were Gunner Daugherty (College Division), Luke Jackson and Hannah Rose (Olympic Division) and Isaiah Morgan, Riley Heatherington and Hayden Mandrake (NBA Division).
Winning ACE Awards were Sage Gorrell, Seth Marra and Trey Mandrake (College Division), Colt Corder, Patrick Francis and Devin Raines (Olympic Division) and Collin Mocyunas, Stephen Dawson, Lauren Bennett and Blake Bennett (NBA Division).
A total of some 116 campers took part in the annual basketball fundamentals camp, and veteran coach Mick Price said the 2012 camp was one of the best-ever.
“It’s hard to believe this was our 26th camp,” Price said. “It’s successful because of the number of businesses we have which are willing to support the kids. And our group of coaches and camp counselors also play a huge part in our success.
“The kids had fun, learned a lot about the game of basketball which will translate to their respective teams and they learned life lessons which are very important to me. I can’t guarantee that they’ll be better basketball players after this camp. It’s up to each one to take what he or she has learned, apply it to their individual games and work hard. But I can guarantee they are better people for the experience.”
Along that same line, Ravenswood Chief of Police Lance B. Morrison addressed the campers as part of the Parade of Champions assembly, stressing the importance of making the right choices and the fact the police are always there to help.
