West Carrollton looks to change progam around with Bball Camp; Dunbar track headed to Nationals without star sprinter
After having years, even decades of being a losing program it looks as if the folks of West Carrollton have had enough, and are looking to turn the program around. With the Varsity Football and Mens Varsity Basketball team placing new coaches in the fold, its obvious to see that the Pirate program is looking in an upward direction. Add to the fact that the Womens Varsity Basketball - led by Scott Davis - had its best season in over 20 years?
Now you might be onto something.
And in continuing that trend, SportsEffectLive has partnered up once again with the Pirates coaching staff, along with the WCMBA to put on the 2nd Annual Developmental Basketball Camp at the High School on June 27th and 28th.
Despite the long drought, it seems that the Pirates are on the right track.
Last year the Developmental Camp featured almost 40 kids - which was a major turnout for its Inaugural one, nevertheless. With former UD Flyer hoopers such as Nate Green, pro players such as Devaughn Buntyons and coaches (Ohio Flash Charles Hickman) the camp went smooth, was ran flawlessly, focused on the fundamentals and was lauded as a great "Stepping Stone Event" for the future in West Carrollton.
This year looks to be even better with more coaches, pro players, and more kids expected to attend since there's no AAU to compete with.
And if you aren't in West Carrolltons program but want to have your son or daughter be a part of the camp?
Last year we had almost 15 kids come from all over the Miami Valley to the camp.
Every kid will recieve a T-Shirt, lunch, a Player Evaluation form, and a chance to win a free video game (Courtesy of Game Stop). Awards wil be give out as well in the different areas (Shooting, Dribbling, Passing, Hustle, Defense, Etc.)

Dunbar will compete for National Championships this week
The D- 2 track champions of Ohio will compete this week in the National Championship in North Carolina.
Despite not having D-1 signee (Houston) and superstar-in-making Brian Bell (pneumonia), Bell actually had pneumonia while he was running for state title in Columbus, but was able to grind it out for the team in one of the greatest stories in City League track history.
However, the Wolverines, who won the indoor championships earlier this year, will make a couple minor adjustments, and should still be in the running for another title.
The Wolverines won back to back titles this season, and will look to complete the rare sweep of winning State and National Indoor and Outdoor titles in one season.
Good luck to Dunbar Nation as they look to complete history.
And knowing Dunbar?
Dont bet against them winning it all.
