Concord University men’s basketball head coach Kent McBride has announced plans to hold an instructional basketball camp for boys ages 8-18 July 17-20 at the Carter Center.

The camp will feature thorough instruction on the fundamentals of basketball as well as team play (up to eight players on a team) according to age and individual experience level.

Attendees will have the option to stay in the Concord University dorms or commute to and from the camp each day.

Cost of the camp is $220 for resident campers, which covers camp fees, all meals and the cost of their room. A camper planning to stay overnight should bring casual summer clothes, swim wear, complete practice outfits, socks, tennis shoes, towels, toiletries, pillow, linens for a twin bed, a blanket and spending money.

Those wishing to commute will pay $180. The price includes camp costs as well as meal tickets for lunch and dinner.

Campers should plan to arrive on the first day of camp at noon. Registration will take place in the lobby of the Carter Center between 12 and 1 p.m. The first session will begin at 2 p.m.

For questions or to secure a registration form, contact McBride by phone (304-384-5330) or by e-mail at coachmcbride@concord.edu.

A state record skipjack was caught by Zachary Hankins of Chesapeake, Ohio on May 7. Hankins caught the 19.21-inch, 2.64-pound fish on a crappie jig while fishing from a boat below the R.C. Byrd Lock and Dam tailwater on the Ohio River in Mason County.

Hankins’ skipjack establishes a West Virginia record for length and weight, exceeding the 19.1-inch skipjack that Howard Neal Craig caught last year on the Ohio River. The record also exceeded a 2.61-pound fish caught by Steve Skeens from the Kanawha River in 2002.

Anglers who believe that they have caught a state record fish should check the record listing in the 2013 fishing regulations brochure. The brochure also outlines the procedure to follow for reporting their catch. This information also is available online at www.wvdnr.gov.
