Great Summer

Streaks Basketball had a great summer.

At the beginning of the summer, three teams and about 35 girls attended camp at the University of Tennessee. Obviously it is exciting to be on the Tennessee campus with their rich tradition of women's basketball. But the extra bonus for the Streaks was to be able to interact with Coach Jason Shay. Coach Shay was an outstanding player at Galesburg HS before going to the University of Iowa. He is presently an assistant in the men's program at Tennessee.

Later in the summer, two teams of players attended a weekend camp at the University of Wisconsin. For Coach Gohlinghorst (Howard), it is a reunion of sorts as one of her college coaches, Ty Margenthaler, is now an assistant at Wisconsin. Besides great basketball in great facilities, the girls got to enjoy all of the wonders of Madison-- State Street, brats, the lakes, and of course Bucky Badger!

Finally, we had seven girls reach "milestones" for their individual efforts this summer. We had a shooting program modelled after cross country programs summer mileage programs. The girls were challenged to shoot, make and record three point shots. Congratulations to Tai Peachey, Mickey Rodriguez, Megan Young, Jamie Johnson, and Paige Klinck who made over 5,000 threes this summer. And to Jessica Howad and Jessica Lieber who made over 10,000 threes!
