For the third straight year, Bandys High School hosts the Justin Harper Oddie Cares Foundation football camp.
The camp, which is operated by former Bandys, former Virginia Tech and current Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Justin Harper, takes place July 8-9.
The first day of the camp will focus on high schools players, while day two features a free camp for kindergarten through 12th graders.
Harper said this yearâ€™s camp will differ from yearâ€™s past.
It took eight innings in Thursdayâ€™s minor league baseball game, but West Virginia managed to score one run to get past Hickory.
After a pitching duel between Hickoryâ€™s Nick Tepesch and West Virginiaâ€™s Colton Cain, a double by Power first basemen Justin Howard in the top of the eighth gave his team a 1-0 lead they did not relinquish.
Tepesch (2-3, 3.43 ERA) had a strong outing, striking out nine batters in six innings, allowing six hits and no earned runs for Hickory (0-1, 40-29).
