The first annual Cait McMahan Trick or Treat Basketball Camp for girls is scheduled for Oct. 30 at Heritage High School. Open to girls 18-under, the camp will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Cost is $35, which includes a camp T-shirt. Pizza will be sold at lunch. The camp will focus on fundamentals and will feature team games and a special guest.
A former Tennessee Lady Vol, McMahan broke the Heritage all-time scoring record — boys or girls — in only three seasons as a Lady Mountaineer earlier this decade, a knee injury cutting short her senior season. The Heritage administration did the unprecedented by retiring her No. 3 jersey during her senior year at the school. McMahan would win a national championship with the Lady Vols during her freshman season in Knoxville in 2008, netting Tennessee coach Pat Summitt her record eighth national crown. Starting a basketball camp for area young girls who will follow her only seemed right, McMahan said.
“I could have done it anywhere, but I wanted to do it in Blount County,” she said.
Preregistration is encouraged and can be done by emailing McMahan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
