Future Rebels Got Game

Biddy Ball

TABLE GROVE, APRIL 1 — The South Fulton Biddy Ballers wrapped up their spring camp on Saturday at VIT High School.

Over 100 campers spent the month of March learning the game of basketball, and were able to showcase their talents on the weekends with games against players of their own age.

“This was a lot of fun, said high school girls basketball Coach Carl Beebe. “We always had great crowds on hand to watch the kids play, and the support from the communities was outstanding. The Lady Rebels basketball program always looks forward to this time of year, and would like to thank those who were involved in making the camp a success.”
