Tarleton women’s basketball coach Ronnie Hearne’s TexAnn Basketball Camp, which began its first session this week, has been “kind of a little reunion,” Hearne said.

Most of Hearne’s current staff help run the camp, led by Hearne’s current assistant coach, Misty Wilson, and Rodney Gee, head girls basketball coach at Eastland High School.

Gee also worked under Hearne, as an assistant at Cisco Junior College.

Nearly one dozen current or former TexAnns are also working the camp, as group leaders and referees.

As at last week’s boys camp hosted by Texan head coach Lonn Reisman, the campers look up to their coaches at the camp, both literally and figuratively.

“My players really like to come back and do this,” Hearne said.

A second session follows next week (Editor’s note: See listing at left), along with a day camp in July. Hearne said overall numbers were up from last summer, to 240 total campers.
