On June 19, 2017 the Hartnell College Women’s Basketball offered their annual camp and welcomed over 20 girls during the four-day basketball bash. Women’s Basketball Head Coach Destiny Grijalva directed the camp. The camp could not have run as smoothly if it was not for our studentathletes volunteering their time to teach campers their techniques. Student-Athletes Erica Cano, Martha Grimes, and Lannie Calunsag offered their time to coach and teach these girls basic basketball skills. Erica volunteered to be at the camp all week. She is a returning sophomore and is planning to graduate and transfer next Spring, Erica will pursue a career as a K-6 teacher. “I enjoy being at the camp because they remind me of how I started to play basketball; my favorite part of the camp is to coach the girls one on one on how to shoot,” explained Erica. Martha also volunteered to be at the camp all week; she is a returning sophomore majoring in Kinesiology. “I enjoyed being here every day because I got to teach them new moves and skills but also the most rewarding thing was to see how much they improved at the end of the camp.” Martha expressed. Lannie also volunteered in the camp. She is a sophomore and will be working toward a career in criminal justice.
