Lady Broncos host camp

The Western Brown Lady Broncos hosted 19 campers at their annual Lady Broncos basketball camp, held June 15-18 at Western Brown High School.

Dennis Overstake’s first Western Brown Lady Broncos basketball camp has been labeled a success.

The legendary head coach with more than 500 wins in Ohio High School Athletic Association action held the annual basketball camp from June 15-18 at the Western Brown High School gym. Nineteen campers from third grade through eighth grade participated in the camp and learned under the tutelage of Overstake, assistant coaches Gina Lawrence and Andrew Gill, as well as more than a dozen high school varsity and junior varsity Lady Broncos players.

“The skill level was really good on the young ladies, they caught on fast to what we were trying to teach them during the week,” Overstake said.

“We worked on fundamentals, on the offensive end we worked on dribbling and ball handling, form shooting, correct shooting. We worked on individual play and team play on both the offensive and defensive ends, and on the defensive end we worked on man-to-man principals and showed them some things about zone (defense). We also worked on boxing out and fast-break transition.”

Overstake was grateful for the work of the high school players, coaches Lawrence and Gill, his wife Dixie and daughter Kayla for all their work setting up the camp in a short amount of time. Overstake was officially introduced as the Lady Broncos head coach on May 21, and held the basketball camp less than a month later.

“We had a lot of help to get the camp accomplished this week and the very short turn around from when I got hired to get the camp going,” Overstake said.

In addition to the fundamentals taught on the floor, the campers also heard speeches from Western Brown High School principal Heather Cooper, who is a former Lady Broncos player, and athletics director Tim Cook, who has been at the school for 20 years.

“It was a highlight to hear them speak about what it means to be a Lady Bronco and the pride in the program,” Overstake said.

Overstake hoped the camp has a long-term impact on the program looking forward.

“I think that the high school girls understood what we were trying to get through to the girls and they tried to help out at the various levels, and I think that really helped the campers to have the players in there showing them the skills, and not just the coaches,” Overstake said. “That’s going to help in the next several years because some of these young ladies, if they have time, they can watch our games because they’ve made a connection with one or several of our high school players.”

Overstake has been hard at work with the varsity and junior varsity teams during the month of June, taking part in scrimmages and shootouts. Overstake said for now the plan is to shut down in July as a majority of his team is preparing for the upcoming volleyball season, with practices beginning in July.
