  • <b><i>Star shooter...<br></b></i>
Nationally renowned shooting instructor Jay Wolf talks to a group of attendees at the Star Shooter basketball clinic held Monday, July 21 at Grand County Middle School. A total of 43 local kids attended the clinic, according to Connie Wilson, who coordinated the effort to bring the Wisconsin-based Wolf to town. Two sessions were held, each 3.5 hours in length, with a morning session for students in grades five through seven and an afternoon session for eighth-graders and older. “It’s all about consistency,” Wolf told the participants. “Your shot should be the same every time.” Wilson said the event was part of the ongoing efforts by Grand’s middle school basketball coach Conrad Yanito and his staff to keep young players focused on the sport and its fundamentals, even in the off-season. As part of that effort another event — a three-on-three basketball tournament — was held at GCMS on June 21, and attracted some 60 youth players. Photo by Jeff Richards
