GEORGETOWN, KY – This past weekend (Feb. 1), Georgetown College women’s lacrosse held another first. The Tigers hosted an all-comers high school lacrosse camp that brought in 75 athletes from five states and 17 high schools.
“It is exciting with everything we do having that newness to it,” said GC coach Brandon Davis. “It was great to see that many interested in taking part of our first-ever camp. I think it went as well as can be expected for a first time.”
Campers came from as far as New York, North Carolina and Indiana. Kentucky and Ohio were the other two states represented. The range of experience was also wide – brand new to seasoned-veterans of 10 years.
“With camps, what I like to see, is my athletes running the drills, while I circulate throughout the camp,” Davis said. “It was a new experience for some of my players having to break the drills down or even further break down the set up. It took a while to get in rhythm, but I think they really enjoyed it as did the campers.
“The influx of athletes came in the day leading up to camp, so there are some things I see there that need to be tweaked to insure a better complete experience, but overall I was really pleased with the entire day.”
The day was filled with four hours of instruction and drills, a session on sports nutrition with the GC Athletic Training Staff and a recruiting question and answer session with the coaching staff.
