“Everybody listen. Doing these drills is what it takes to be a Lady Panther,” Pine Grove coach Katie Bates told her campers.
“And y’all wan’t to be Lady Panthers one day, right?,” she asked in the sort of rhetorical way that the campers, age 6-12, didn’t quite grasp.
They responded with a resounding “YES!”
Of course they do. Everybody wants to play basketball for Pine Grove’s championship coach and program.
32 campers were on hand to go through dribbling, passing, shooting and defensive drills.
And to learn the “Lady Panther Way.”
“We are excited with this turn out,” Coach Bates said.
And the girls, if their pin drop silent reverence for the 3x state champion coach was any indication, were excited to be there.
