LOGAN, W.Va. — Recent Marshall University basketball standout Shayna Gore will be giving back to her home community of Logan, hosting a basketball camp, The Shayna Gore Summer Basketball Camp, June 5 and 6 at the old Logan East gym.

The camp runs 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day and is for boys and girls ages 4 to 16.

Gore is “super excited to hold my first summer basketball camp in June in my hometown!,” she said in a Twitter post. “Hope to see everybody out!”

She shot 38 percent from beyond the 3-point arc, sinking 90 3-pointers. She also had 50 steals and nearly 100 assists.

The 5-foot-10 guard finished her Marshall career with 2,081 points, a mark that is third in program history and tied for sixth in C-USA’s record book.

Gore had an illustrious prep career at Logan High School as she led the Lady Cats to the 2013 Class AAA state championship game, getting upset wins over Princeton and Spring Valley along the way.

She averaged 28 points per game her senior year in 2015 and was named as the West Virginia Gatorade Player of the Year.

Named to the all-state first team three years in a row, Gore closed her prep career with 1,991 points, the most in Logan High School history for either gender.
