Indiana Fever player Sydney Carter made a guest appearance Thursday afternoon (June 12) at the Columbus North Girls Basketball youth camp.
Carter spoke to about 140 people at the camp in the Columbus North main gym. The third-year WNBA player offered tips on skills, conditioning, nutrition and motivation to about 90 campers that ranged from entering second-graders through entering eighth-graders. In addition, about 30 current Columbus North players listened to Phillips' remarks as did a number of coaches, parents and others in the audience.
Carter, 23, is in her first season as a member of the Fever. Previously, she played part of one season with the Chicago Sky and most of another season with the Connecticut Sun. Carter is a 5-6 guard who is averaging 5.5 points this season for the Fever.
A native of Texas, Carter played at Texas A&M and helped the Aggies to the 2011 NCAA Championship. She graduated from A&M in 2012 and began her professional career later that year. She also has played internationally in Israel.
