“It’s our best turnout ever,” said Crook County High School volleyball coach Rosie Honl about the annual Cowgirl Volleyball camp.
This year’s camp is attended by 65 second through ninth graders. There are volleyball players at the camp from Bend, Redmond, Sisters, Madras, Culver, and Dufur, as well as Crook County.
“The girls are extremely attentive to the skills we’ve been teaching,” Honl said. “They have been focused and mindful.”
The annual three-day camp emphasizes skills rather than playing volleyball. The goal of the camp is to provide volleyball players with the fundamental skills to be successful.
“It just gets bigger and better every year,” Honl said.
The camp ends on Thursday at noon, but that doesn’t mean that there won’t be more volleyball later in the week.
Several campers, as well as members of the Crook County High School volleyball team, are traveling to Seaside for a beach volleyball tournament over the weekend.
“We are taking 10 or 12 over to the Seaside Beach Volleyball Tournament,”
The tournament runs Friday and Saturday, with the pro championship and four-man tournaments decided on Sunday.
Honl added that they are able to take some many people to Seaside this year because of the generous help of Jody Stahancyk and her family.
“They donated a house for us to use at the Seaside tournament,” Honl said “We can’t thank them enough.”
