Playoff basketball teams aren't built in Junes.
But it sure can be a foundation.
That's what Sarah Grab and her Corry Lady Beavers were hoping to do this past week with a camp at the high school.
Villa Maria brought in two teams, and there were strong clubs from Mercyhurst Prep, Girard, Eisenhower, Maplewood and Titusville.
"Overall, I was really pleased with our team camp," said Grab. "I thought that it was good experience for us to play against competitive teams from around the region.
"All the other coaches and teams were very complimentary of how things were run," she stated. "Playing teams like Girard and Villa are always a great challenge.
"It is also good to see where we stand as a team; improvements that we need to make and strengths as well," Grab commented. "We have a lot to work on but it is still so early; I keep telling the ladies by November we are going to be a completely different team."
Grab, in her second season, is coming off a 12-11 effort but must replace the likes of Megan Frisina, Sarah Curtis and Tiffani Danks.
“The summer provides wonderful opportunities to showcase our talents and try new things out," she said. “As far as the rest of the summer goes; we have open gyms twice a week, we leave for a team camp in Akron today.
"We have a team camp in Girard in two weeks, and we travel to Gannon for another team camp in July," said Grab. "So we will be busy but it is great experience and practice for the ladies."
So the foundation is being built.
