It was hard to say whether the Conklin Raiders Gold players or the campers were having more fun this year at our 3-day camp. There were countless smiles on both sides of the drills.
The days were full of activities and drills supported by players of past and present!
In three short days, we all became sisters! Thank you to all the campers that gave it their all this year. A special thank you to Forever Raiders and Coaches Cara Martin, Elena Shelepak, and Michaela Transue for their positivity and expertise at camp! Go Raiders!
As the Raiders readied themselves with Sunday clinics all winter long, they dedicated their last clinic to helping up-and-coming softball athletes get ready for their seasons. This was a fun day...the smiles say it all! The mutual love of the game helped everyone make immediate connections.
In the last of the scorching heat of fall, the Conklin Raiders Fastpitch Organization met at Onondaga Community College to spend the day with softball great, Bill Edwards, former Hofstra coach and Softball Hall of Fame member.
Through his inspiring words, drills, and hands on corrections, Coach Edwards got nothing but the Raiders' best. All of the Raiders recognize what it honor it is to work with Coach Edwards but he let the athletes know that the honor was all his.
Thank you for your time and dedication to the sport, as well as our athletes, Coach Edwards!
