This week, Redmond athletes Max Hopper and Ryan Wellman are participating in an elite, one-of-a-kind camp, the Dusty Baker Baseball Camp in Rancho Cordova, California! Max will be entering his freshman year at Ridgeview High School and Ryan will be an 8th grader at Elton Gregory Middle School. Both athletes were nominated by Marc Horner, assistant principal of Elton Gregory Middle School to Gene Frechette, sponsor, former MLB scout and CEO of the camp.

Both Max and Ryan were chosen for this camp based on their athleticism, exemplary academic performance and community involvement.
