The senior stars of the Southern Hills Athletic Conference will shine bright again on Friday, March 31 as local radio station C103 Country will sponsor the 34th annual SHAC Senior All-Star Game.  This year’s “night full of fun” will take place at West Union High School with doors opening for what is always a full house at 5 p.m.
Besides the Girls and Boys All-Star games, there will be a night full of other activities and contests, organized by the extreme hard work of the staff at C103.
For musical entertainment, the renowned West Union Percussion group will bring their unique and distinctive sounds for a performance at halftime of the girls game.  Also, the West Union Choir, fresh off a performance at the girls state tournament in Columbus, will sing the National Anthem before the boys’ contest.
Between the two games, there will be the annual Hot Shot Contest for the girls and the boys, with one of each gender then meeting in a championship challenge.  A few minutes into the boys game, play will be halted for the C103 Cash Scramble, where some lucky blindfolded fan will be able to grab as much cash as they can off of the WUHS gym floor.
At halftime of the boys game, there will be an auction of basketballs autographed by the girls and boys team plus a megaphone signed by all the All-Star cheerleaders.  Soon after that, the always popular Slam Dunk contest returns with those “questionable” judges wearing the black and white stripes.
Besides all the fun events, the most important part of the evening also comes at halftime of the boys game with the announcement of the 2017 winners of the C103 Scholarships.  A group of hard working and well-deserving senior athletes from the SHAC will be awarded $1,000 scholarships after a rigorous selection process.  The station has given out over $100,000 in scholarships over the years.
As far as the basketball is concerned, the radio stations extends invitations to senior players from all of the schools in the SHAC, while the coaches are those whose teams finished in either first or second place in the big and small school divisions of the conference.
