A lot of local kids who got new basketball gear for the holidays had a chance to put it to quick use last week, as Putnam Science Academy held its 2022 Christmas Break Drills and Skills Camp.
The three-day camp was attended by 50 kids from the surrounding areas playing in two divisions separated by age groups. The Celtics won the older NBA division; Providence took home the Big East crown among the younger teams. PSA coaches Josh Scraba, TaNajia Smith, and Dana Valentine, plus former player Michael Phav, led the campers through drills and coached the teams.
“This was a shorter camp week than usual because of the holiday,” said Tom Espinosa, “but it really was a great week. The kids were into it for sure. They came to have fun and work. They were great.”
Award winners from the NBA include: TJ Espinosa (Player of the Week), Liam Bertram (Defensive Player of the Week), Sydney Anderson (Coaches Award), and Jack Keller (Mr. Hustle).
Award winners in the Big East division were: Axle Kapitulik (Player of the Week), Jacob Martel (Defensive Player of the Week), Noah LeGary (Coaches Award), and Sawyer Scott (Mr. Hustle).
