Houston senior Kylee Elmore will play alongside some of the region’s top players Saturday afternoon in the 10th annual Grizzly All-Star Classic at Missouri State University-West Plains.
The girls’ game will get underway at 3 p.m., followed by the boys at 5. Both games will be played in the West Plains Civic Center arena. Three-point and slam dunk contests will take place between the games.
Players from schools in Alton, Bakersfield, Bunker, Cabool, Couch, Dora, Eminence, Gainesville, Hartville, Houston, Koshkonong, Licking, Mansfield, Mountain View-Birch Tree Liberty, Mountain Grove, Norwood, Plato, Rolla, Salem, Summersville, Thayer, West Plains, Willow Springs and Winona, as well as Mountain Home, Ark., will be featured in the games.
Coaches for the girls’ teams will be Kristi Chester of Thayer and Jack Harris of Gainesville with coach the girls’ teams. The boys’ coaches are Steve Voyles of Winona and Brett Reed of Hartville.
“It’s always our pleasure to give these young ladies and young men one more opportunity to put on their high school uniform and give residents in their hometowns one last chance to see them in action,” MSU-WP coach Yancy Walker said. “I think this will be one of the best games we’ve had for a while. It’s also neat to see kids from rival high schools play together.”
Tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for children age 11 and under.
