Women's Basketball Spends Time At The Ashbrook School

Sept. 17, 2009

CORVALLIS, Ore. - All 14 Members of the Oregon State women's basketball team recently took time to visit students and perform a clinic at the Ashbrook School on Thursday.

'This was my first community service experience in Corvallis, and it was fantastic,' said El Sara Greer. 'Thank you to Ashbrook's John Schneider for inviting us to run the clinic. I enjoyed meeting all of the children at Ashbrook and it was great that the kids did the OSU chant at the end.'

Approximately 50 third, fourth and fifth graders attended the event. The students listened to the Oregon State players as they performed drills at stations, which included passing, rebounding, ball handling, defense and shooting

'Being able to conduct the clinic at Ashbrook is a great way for our team to reach out and give back to our community, and especially the kids who support our team all year long,' said Julie Futch. 'It was a great experience and I'm glad to have had the opportunity to work with them.'

The quotes are from just two of the team's 14 student-athletes this season, but each one could have said the same thing as it was an enjoyable experience for everyone involved. The visit Thursday marked the third straight year the Beavers have visited.

Ashbrook Independent School is a private co-educational school with preschool, elementary and middle school programs, with grades from pre-kindergarten to the eighth grade. Ashbrook's students range in age from three to 14.
