Last week was a break from instruction for most Lincoln County students but, for 33 hoops hopefuls, there was no "fall break" as they took part in the annual Patriot Basketball Camp.
The week-long camp, led by LCHS boys coach Jeff Jackson, was open to boys and girls in kindergarten through eighth-grade and provided one-on-one instruction in basketball from the basic fundamentals on up.
"The kids have done real well," said Jackson. "They've worked hard and had a lot of fun. The week went fast but I think they've learned a lot, at least, I hope they have."
Jackson's assistant coaches, Brad Petrey, Shawn Conley and Dean Jones, helped with camp instruction throughout the week along with Morgan Brown, Amber Newcomb and Kevin Bandura.
