Learning the Fundamentals of Basketball

Cowley College men’s basketball coach Tommy DeSalme and assistant coach Eric Nitsche led the Tiger Basketball Camp for boys and girls entering grades 1-6 in the fall. A total of 32 boys and girls took part in the camp. Donnie Jackson, former assistant coach and current NOC-Tonkawa head coach, assisted, along with Jancye Sturd and Abby Hollins.
