3/18: All-Star Basketball

For the second year in the New River Valley, there will be a boys and girls’ senior All-Star basketball game! These contests will take place at Pulaski County High School on March 18, 2017, with the girls playing at 6pm and the boys to follow.

This event is being put on by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) of the New River Valley as an outreach and a fundraiser. Cost of admission is $5, and there will other activities as well as concessions available.

FCA is the largest sports ministry in the world, and staff work regionally in areas to see its core values of Integrity, Serving, Teamwork, and Excellence embedded on our sports teams.

New River Valley FCA covers the following counties and cities: Tazewell, Bland, Giles, Wythe, Pulaski, Radford, Montgomery, Grayson, Galax, Carroll and Floyd.

Almost every school in these divisions will have a senior playing in one of the two games. Also, all the coaches for these teams are current head varsity or JV coaches in our area.

Six of the players participating scored over 1000 points in their career. One player has scored 2000 points.

The games will be in a West vs. East format. The East squad for boys and girls will include players from: Giles, Auburn, Floyd, Eastern Montgomery, Christiansburg, Blacksburg, Carroll County, Radford, and Dayspring Christian Academy.

The West Squad includes Richlands, Tazewell, Graham, Bland, Narrows, Rural Retreat, George Wythe, Fort Chiswell, Pulaski County, Grayson County, and Galax. However, to help even the roster numbers – the Pulaski Girls players will play on the East squad.
