   The Ripon College women’s basketball team hosted its youth camp for grades 2 to 8 Monday and Tuesday in the Doc Weiske Gymnasium at the college.

   The camp aimed to provide a fun and competitive atmosphere. It included offensive and defensive fundamental work, camp contests and college coaching instruction.

  It was led by Ripon College head women’s basketball coach Lauren Busalacchi, assistants Dave Johnson and Megan Jensen, and several current players, such as Kassidy Walters, who is fresh off beating cancer.
