Aubrey Ashley wins co-op scholarship to N.C. State Women’s Basketball Camp

Roanoke Cooperative has awarded Aubrey Ashley, 11, the 2023 Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp scholarship to N.C. State University. Ashley is a rising 5th grader at Hertford Elementary School. She will join other campers from across N.C. this summer to learn fundamental basketball skills and teamwork. Camp attendees also meet other talented players and even pose with N.C. State Women’s Basketball Coach Wes Moore for a picture. The basketball camp scholarship program expresses Roanoke Cooperative’s commitment to its local community.
Ashley is committed to sports of all kinds. Her activities include playing travel softball for Carolina Shockwave, travel volleyball for Albemarle Regional Volleyball Club, and volleyball, basketball, and softball for the Perquimans Recreation Department. She was a member of the N.C. Tarheel League State Champion last summer. She is also active in her community, regularly participating in youth programs at Middle Swamp Baptist church, attending Camp Cale each summer, and helping with community fundraisers. In addition, she loves making crafts, cooking, and baking with her grandmother in her spare time.
Ashley said she is excited to attend the camp “to learn new skills, learn to play as a team with new teammates and receive coaching from experienced coaches.” She adds, “The sport of basketball means a lot to me. It is a game where you must work as a team, learn from your mistakes, hustle, and give 100 percent effort with every possession or defensive play. You have to trust your teammates and coaches. Attending this camp means meeting other girls my age who love the sport like I do.”
