The 26th annual edition of Comets Basketball Camp was May 30–June 2 at the GHS gym.
Greenville High School coach Todd Cantrill welcomed 55 future Comet athletes for the four-day experience.
“Campers were excited, they got after it and listened,” said Cantrill. “Everyone showed improvement throughout their time at the camp.”
Cantrill was aided by assistant coaches Adam Doll and Terry Swalley. Several current Comet players helped teach skills and give encouragement to the campers as well.
Several campers won awards for their play over the three days.

Scoring champion and Jump Shot champion, Brantley Jackson; Rebound champion, Macoy Helige; Assist champion, Cameron Glisson; Free Throw champion, Carston Rainey and Jump Shot champion, Jackson Swalley. Jackson was also named Mr. Comet.
