Chase and Josie Hiatt, the son and daughter of Ty and Dana Hiatt of Hotchkiss, attended the Brigham Young University 12 and 13-year old baseball camp in Provo, UT. at Miller Park.
The pair of youngsters enjoyed a week long camp and received pitching, catching, batting, base running and outfield play tips from BYU's baseball and softball coaches and the Cougar players.
The weeklong camp was packed with over 600 boys from California to New York and Josie was the only girl to attend the camp.
After the weeklong routine of drills, classes and hands-on activities, the participants enjoyed a two-day tournament.
The Hiatts received several special awards at the closing ceremonies; Chase was the catcher on the winning team, placed second in base running and was third in fielding.
Josie received a third- place award for her base running and "The Outstanding Cougar Award," which recognizes a player's sportsmanship, enthusiasm, heart and hustle.
Both feel that everything they learned and the new friends they made will be a lasting and lifelong wonderful experience.blog comments powered by Disqus
