Girls Basketball Game at Camp Tioga

Score 23 -14

Today 9th grade played Camp Tioga in an exciting away game. From the start of the game the young ladies were in attack mode. Francesca G showed off her flashy ball handling skills as she drove to the basket to score her first two points for Starlight. Francesca was accompanied by Morgan S and Samantha B as leading scorer with 6 points. Not only did Morgan and Samantha score 6 points but they also lead the team with steals and proved to be a powerhouse in the point snatching in 7 rebounds. Samantha also contributed in a major way by being the silent assassin; doing everything her team needed. We wouldn’t have held Camp Tioga to only 14 points without the help of our defensive specialist Jessica W who came to the game and locked down Camp Tioga’s  star player. I am very proud of these 13 young ladies and the season is looking very promising.

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.
