NRHEG senior to play basketball, softball at Iowa college

FOREST CITY – Kayley Camerer looks to provide in the paint on the hardwood while producing at the plate on the softball diamond as she continues her athletic career as a dual-sport athlete at Waldorf University.

Camerer, an Ellendale, Minn. native and senior from New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva High School, signed letters of intent with the Warriors on April 23.

"It is a surreal feeling to be able to continue both basketball and softball," Camerer said. "It shows that all the hard work I put into for both sports paid off."

A 5-foot-11 center, Camerer was a four-year varsity letter winner and started for NRHEG the past two seasons.

"Kayley comes from a winning program that has had some excellent seasons over the past few years," Waldorf women's basketball coach Katie Schutjer said. "She was part of a program this season in particular that worked extremely hard to be winners and ended her senior campaign with a state tournament berth."

Pat Churchill, boys’ basketball coach at NRHEG, along with his staff and current varsity players will be running a boys’ basketball camp June 12-15 for boys going to be in grades 3-9.  The cost is $40 per camper, and will include instruction on fundamentals, a camp T-shirt and prizes.
