                                                     Solanco High School: Young players from first to eighth grades took to the field the week of June 20th to learn the basics of field hockey.  The annual camp had 35 players. Helping to coach the camp were 17 members of Solanco High School's field hockey team. The camp included team building activities, tactical skills, and actual hockey games.  On Tuesday the campers wore a “fun” color. Wednesday they dressed in wacky attire. Thursday they dressed as twins and Friday they wore their camp shirts. In recent years the camp has been held for a week in June. Source: Southern Lancaster County Chronicle   Don HessKeller Williams Realtyof Central PA East930 Red Rose CourtLancaster, PA 17601717 553-2500 office717 715-6288 mobile717 786-7967 dir...
