PARKLAND, Wash. – Pacific Lutheran's men's basketball team earned their second consecutive Pierce County Volunteer of the Year Award as presented by Lakewood Recreation Center Leader Meredith Smith. Following the award presentation, the team hosted the 10th Annual Basketball Clinic on April 18.
"Meredith does such a great job of organizing the Spring Leagues for these young people," said Steve Dickerson, PLU head coach. "This clinic is an opportunity to help her with the game that we love.
Over 175 girls and boys from the community received instruction in the arts of passing, dribbling, shooting, ball-handling, rebounding and defending from members of the Lutes team. Current Lutes Joshua Baird, Jared Christy, Dylan DeWalt, Markus Mitchell Glenn, Kasey Johnson, Brandon Lester, Kyle Sawtell, Zac Webb and Garth West all participated in the clinic.
"It was a wonderful feeling when we can brighten a kid's day with a little basketball," said West.
