Olympian Jennie Finch hosts softball camp in Pikeville

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - An Olympic gold medalist was in Pikeville this weekend coaching youngsters in the sport she loves.

The Jennie Finch Softball Camp was open to girls in third grade and up. Finch's professional and Olympic teammates were working the camp. The Pikeville Director of Attractions, Sean Cochran, says girls came to Pikeville from around the country for the camp.

"I mean it's just girls from all over. And this is just a tremendous opportunity for us as a city to be able to show off what we have," said Cochran.

Today was the last day of the camp.
