Logan hosting youth boys basketball camp

The camp will be held for four days from June 24-27. Boys entering grades 1-4 will meet from 8-9 a.m.; boys entering grades 5-6 will meet from 9:15-10:15 a.m.; and boys entering grades 7-8 will meet from 10:30-11:30 a.m.
The camp is called the 2019 Skills Academy. Cost is $30. The goal of the camp is to equip athletes with the skill and intensity level to take their games to the next level. Shooting drills, dribbling drills and other workouts will be sent home with each player at the completion of the camp to insure success for the following year.
Each session will consist of player development, speed and agility training and one skill game. Individuals will receive personal instruction from high level coaches. A maximum of 100 athletes will be allowed in each session in order to allow personal instruction and focused skill training. Sessions will last 60 minutes and will go as follows: 45 minutes of skill development (shooting, passing, ball handling and speed and agility) and 15 minutes of segmented game play/competitions.

Arch Madness: Blues win 1st Stanley Cup
BOSTON (AP) — Ryan O’Reilly scored for the fourth straight game and rookie Jordan Binnington stopped 32 shots in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 4-1 victory over the Boston Bruins and their first NHL championship.
Alex Pietrangelo added a goal and an assist and Brayden Schenn and Zach Sanford also scored for St. Louis. The Blues woke up on New Year’s morning with the worst record in the league but won 30 of their final 49 regular-season games and soared through the playoffs to reach the final for the first time since 1970.
Coach Craig Berube, who took over when Mike Yeo was fired in November, is the fourth coach in the past 11 years hired in midseason to lead his team to the NHL title.
Matt Grzelcyk scored the Bruins’ only goal, and Tuukka Rask stopped 16 shots for Boston.
