Summer Hoop Fun at Gordon's Bennett Center

Over 70 girls ages 7-16 from across the North Shore are attending one of two weeklong basketball camps sponsored by Gordon Athletics and held in the Bennett Center. But this July marks the first time local girls will experience the leadership benefits of Gordon’s newest coach, Julie Brown, head women’s basketball coach, who started officially on July 1. Now a resident of Beverly, MA, Brown comes to Gordon from Florida State University (FSU) in Tallahassee where she served for four years as the director of special projects and recruiting coordinator for the FSU women’s basketball team. (Read more about Coach Brown here.)

Pictured here are the coaches for the girls basketball camps held July 12-23. Some even flew in from around the country to offer their b-ball skills: (from left) Josh Cannon of Birmingham, AL; Kayla Pacheco of Sutton, MA;  Sam Christopher of Manchester, MA; Becca Berman, an incoming first year student and player at Gordon from Thousand Oaks, CA; Gordon College Head Coach Julie Brown of Beverly, MA; Kristi Leach '11 of Naples, ME; Laura Cande of Bedford, NH; Kerry Chomic of Lakeview, MI.
