Sports

HOOVER, Ala. (WIAT) — The Birmingham Live girls basketball camp finished its three day tournament. This event is a great way for travel teams to start july in front of college coaches. They attract some of the top talent and teams from across the country and we talk to some of our local girls about playing with one another.

One of the teams are formed with girls from our local area. There team name is the All Alabama Roadrunners. We talked to two of the players and they are excited about participating in the tournament.

Dakiyah Sanders from Ramsay High School says “It’s a great experience from playing these girls in high school and now having all this talent on one team it’s a great experience and i feel like we connect and play well together.”

“I have to say its pretty like cool because Birmingham kind of like has a reputation and to just have these different schools come and actually see us play i feel like it gives us more of a hype that we can actually do something,” says Hannah Edwards.
