The Mena boys basketball teams hosted a team camp July 17th at Jim Rackley Gymnasium. Junior high and senior high teams were in action throughout the day. The games started at 10 a.m. and went through the whole day. Acorn and Cossatot both brought their JV and Varsity teams to play in the team camp. Games were played with 16 minute running clock halves and the clock was only stopped within the last minute of each half if the score was within 10 points.
Mena has been participating in team camps throughout the summer and the Mena team camp was one of the last opportunities this summer for the Bearcats to get game experience. Many of the basketball players are dual sport athletes and will be playing football this fall, making this a valuable opportunity for coaches to work with their teams before the start of football.
