SALEM, Va. (WFXR) — The Roanoke College softball team giving their knowledge of the sports to more than 90 young ladies in their annual summer camp Tuesday at the Moyer Sports Complex in Salem. The Maroons players and coaching staff spent the day helping the campers improve their skills on the diamond. The camp is a win win for all involved. “We do our camps a little be more. Some teams use their camps more for recruiting, we do that to look at players. We are more trying to build the softball community. We are growing and hopefully trying to teach the young ladies hopefully when they leave our camp they learned something along the way,” said Roanoke College head softball coach Mike Mitchell. “It is nice to do what other players did for me. When I was coming to these camps when I was young I would look up to the players. So it is nice to have the roles reversed,” said Roanoke College outfielder and pitcher Lauren Chappell. “I feel like since we are with the college girls I graduate in 2025, so i feel it is a big deal to hang out with the older girls and the older girls helping us out with everything I feel that it is a big deal to me,” said Roanoke College softball camper Cora Robinson. This is the 13th season of the Roanoke College summer softball camp.
