C103 Senior All-Star Game is March 24 at North Adams High School

Local radio station C013 Country will step up to the plate once again next week as they sponsor their 33d annual Senior All-Star Game. After broadcasting hundreds of basketball contests throughout the 2015-16 season, the station now will host a gathering of the senior student-athletes of the Southern Hills Athletic Conference for a night of fun and friendly competition.

This year’s game will take place on March 24 at North Adams High School, with the girls action beginning at 6 p.m., the start of a big night of showcase activities.

Besides the girls and boys All-Star Games, the evening will include the always popular Slam Dunk Contest, won last year by the high-flying prowess of West Union’s Tyler Sininger. Also part of the competition will be the Hot Shot Three-Point Shooting Contest, won in 2015 by Peebles’ Zach Arrasmith and Fairfield’s Kaitlin Evans.

Besides the basketball activities, there will be the “Cash Grab” plus a Split the Pot which always sends some fan home with a nice payday. Also on the slate will be an auction of a megaphone signed by all the cheerleaders and basketballs signed by the girls and boys teams.

The fun on the hardwood is the focus of the evening, but perhaps the most important part of the night is when C103 will award its annual scholarships. The station has given away over $100,000 in scholarship money at past All-Star Games.

Earlier this week, all of the senior student-athletes and cheerleaders who were chosen for this year’s game got together for practice and a pizza party and the opposing teams were chosen and are as follows:
