Aucilla Christian Academy’s girls’ varsity basketball team attended their seventh summer basketball camp at the University of Florida, June 28-29, 2013. Twelve varsity, junior varsity and middle school players attended camp with Head Coach Daryl Adams, Assistant Coaches Amanda Sapp and Shaina Mattingly, and ACA Middle School Coach James Burkett. Players included: Dena Bishop, Cali Burkett, Morgan Cline, Lauren Demott, Marissa Duber, Maddie Everett, Camryn Grant, Ashley Hebert, Brittney Hughes, Kayla Knecht, Kinzi Mattingly and Whitney Stevens. ACA played a total of six games and was one of the few 1A teams among the 4A and 5A schools at UF. “Teambuilding was our main focus at camp,” said Coach Daryl Adams. “We improved our performance with every game, and the girls are continuing to understand that basketball takes a lot of work to succeed.” Ten middle school, junior varsity and varsity boys’ basketball players attended Valdosta State University’s instructional basketball camp June 17-21, 2013, to further develop their fundamentals. This was the team’s fourth year at VSU. ACA players included: Zack Arcensaux, Nathan Green, Ricky Finlayson, Timothy Finlayson, Jim Flournoy III, John Flournoy, Nathan Green, Carson Nennstiel, Gatlin Nennstiel and Steven Trest. “Our team has improved from last year,” said ACA Varsity Head Coach Dan Nennstiel. “They’re more competitive this year. The boys played well over the summer, and we enjoyed opening the gym on Thursday nights at ACA for alumni and parents to play with their sons and daughters.” Thirteen ACA players also participated in Tallahassee Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) basketball tournaments with Coaches Richard Finlayson and Dan Nennstiel. This was their second year participating in AAU. Players included: Zack Arcensaux, Casey Demott, Ricky Finlayson, Timothy Finlayson, Jim Flournoy III, John Flournoy, Brandon Holm, Eric Hutsell, Ryan Jackson, Braden Mattingly, Carson Nennstiel, Gatlin Nennstiel and D.J.
