June 19, 2013 - Clarkston High School gymnasium was filled with 150 enthusiastic girls last week as they worked on their skills and learned new techniques during Volleyball Camp.

"It gets more and more popular," said Kelly Avenall, head coach for the Lady Wolves varsity volleyball team. "I like to see they are excited about playing volleyball and having fun. They are spirited."

Eighth grader Hannah Chadwell and fifth grader Kate Gualtieri enjoyed their second year at the camp and had fun. They added they keep getting better at the sport.

"It will turn into muscle memory," Chadwell explained on how it will help when she plays this year. "Everything will happen naturally."

"All the skills I learn here will help me get on the team and help me become a better volleyball player," Gualtieri smiled.

The girls also could ask their favorite varsity players and alumni for questions and tips to make them better.

Proceeds from the camp go right back into the Lady Wolves' volleyball program.

The freshman, junior varsity and varsity teams begin their season in August as the younger teams will start in the winter season. Please check www.clarkston.k12.mi.us/athletics for tryouts and conditioning updates.
