“Starlight’s Tenacious Defense proves itself once again”

After trailing by 6 going into the 2nd half, Starlight’s defense proved to be the deciding factor once again. The girls never gave up. Everyone chipped in defensively, scoring at least 1 point each. “I am very pleased with our girls” With their relentless style of play, Starlight will be hard to beat in Wayne County.

Diego “The Explorer” Returns!

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

We are excited to announce that Diego McCoy will again be calling Camp Starlight home this summer. Diego is looking forward to spending his 2nd summer at camp and bringing his high energy, up-tempo approach to the basketball courts.

Diego continues to work during the winter with 1 on 1 Basketball in and around the District of Columbia teaching and developing young athletes.

For those of you who have not been to camp, Diego came to Starlight last summer with an extensive coaching and playing background. He played college basketball at West Virginia University and scored 30 points during an NIT Tournament semi-final game at Madison Square Garden.  Diego also played professional basketball overseas before returning to the United States and getting involved in teaching and coaching. He spent years as a college assistant before dedicating his life to working with middle and high school children in and around Washington DC.

Diego hopes that all of the Starlight basketball all-stars had a great youth, middle, or high school season.  He can’t wait to get back out on the courts and “run through” the Wayne County Competition.
