Lindsey has had Devyn, Sarah, Daphne, Victoria, and Alysha this week. She has had an awesome time and can't wait for tomorrow's tournament. She has already asked about next year. She put part of her birthday money away for next year! She has increased her setting abilities, jump serves, and spike approach capabilities.
AWESOME CAMP and LEADERS! Thanks so much.
