Six members of the St. Lawrence men's basketball team conducted a
week-long basketball camp for youth in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, in August.
The players, Andy Hoercher '10, of Auburn, NY; Tom Wopperer '09, of Manlius, NY; Ben Araya '11, of Westborough, MA; Garrett Sharlow '12, Massena, NY; Terry Parham '12, Fort Drum, NY; and
Josh Sharlow '10, of Norwood, NY; ran the program, for about 50 boys, aged 10 to 14.
While in the Dominican Republic, the students also played an exhibition game with "Los Mellizos" a prominent local semi-pro team. The camp was hosted by the El Buen Samaritano church and the Puerto Plata Basketball Association.
This video, featuring the players from St. Lawrence, was created to promote the camp.
