Fundamental Skills Camp, High School Shootout set for women's basketball

Allison Nash shoots during warm ups


HANOVER, Ind. – The Hanover women’s basketball program will host its annual Girls’ Fundamental Skills Camp and High School Shootout later this month.

Hanover will open the summer by hosting the Girls’ High School Shootout Saturday, June 17, followed by the skills camp on Sunday, June 18, through Wednesday, June 21.

The Panthers are coming off a six-win improvement in Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference play under second year head coach John Jones. Hanover returned to the HCAC Tournament as they finished the regular season in a tie for fourth.

Former Hanover women’s basketball coach and current assistant athletic director Molly Jones, along with her husband John, will co-direct the summer events. Molly amassed a career record of 405-296 through 28 seasons as a collegiate head coach, including a 271-175 mark at Hanover. John just finished his second year as the head coach of the Panther women’s basketball program and spent the prior 10 years as an assistant on the staff.

The skills camp will be for girls entering grades 3 through 9 for the 2017-18 academic year. The campers will be grouped according to age and ability and the daily schedule will provide excellent instruction of fundamentals while also creating ample time for 5-on-5, 3-on-3 play and individual contests.

Hanover finished the 2016-17 season with a 13-13 overall record and 11-7 mark in HCAC play. The Blue and Red have appeared in two of the last four HCAC tournament championship games, while also winning the 2014-15 conference tournament championship and advancing to the NCAA National Tournament. As a program, Hanover has appeared in four NCAA National Tournaments, with the last three entries all coming since the 2010-11 season.
