Seventh-grader wins Pass, Shoot, Dribble title

Greenfield’s Cameron Wise had no equal on the hardwood earlier this month.

The Greenfield Central Junior High seventh-grader won the Optimist Club’s Tri-Star Pass, Shoot & Dribble state title at the New Castle Chrysler Fieldhouse.

At 13 years old, Wise has made winning a habit, already claiming the 10-year-old state title in 2013 and the 12-year-old championship in 2015.
