Lake Forest Academy junior Ryan Clamage could always shoot the ball.

He had no choice if he wanted to be in the conversation for best shooter in the family. His older sister, Lauren Clamage, scored more than 1,000 points for Lake Forest Academy and is now a freshman playing at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minn.

The siblings would often do a drill where they each had to make 10 jump shots from five different points on the floor.

“At most, she would miss two shots at every spot,” Ryan Clamage said with a smile. “We were competitive with each other and she pushed me to work harder and get better.”

All of Ryan Clamage’s hard work on his shooting — combined with rigorous work in the weight room over the summer — is allowing him to play a key role for the Caxys (3-2). He is averaging about 10 points per game.
