Valley Sports Report
WAVERLY — The 39th annual Waverly Basketball Camp concluded Friday with its “coaches vs. all-stars game,” and awards ceremony, highlighted by MVP presentations to Tioga's Evan Sickler, Sayre's Carson Rockwell, Towanda's Boom Thompson, and Waverly's Drew Croft.

This year’s camp was the largest ever with 187 student-athletes in attendance, and 19 coaches working the camp, including Waverly varsity coach, and camp director Lou Judson, recent Division I Citadel grad and standout Tyler Moffe, and a host of former Waverly standouts, including Dave Sickler, Hunter Bodine, Gavin Judson, Scott Woodring, Elle Nittinger, and Jon Ward.

“This camp has turned into one of the largest in the Northern and Southern tiers,” said Lou Judson. “I’m very proud of taking this camp to an entirely different level.”
