Oak Forest boys' skills improve at summer camp


While most kids were enjoying their summer vacations and getting ready for July 4, the Oak Forest Academy boys basketball team focused on putting in hard work while hosting their first ever annual basketball camp. MAIS programs Adams County Christian School, Bowling Green, Central Private and Amite School Center were invited to participate, as well as LHSAA members Independence and Albany.

“It was the first time all our guys were able to to get together, even my guys from football,” said Jackets Coach Curtis Matherne. “We played a lot of scrimmages, and my guys did a really good job at the small things. We took a lot of charges, grabbed a lot of rebounds and set a lot of screens.”

Matherne says his group had a long way to go before they started to look like a team, but persistence began to pay off by the end of camp for the Jackets.
