|After competing against each other for years, four Weakley County girls basketball players will have a chance to work together. |
The Weakley County quartet of Westview’s Amber Rechis, Gleason’s Jenna Frazier and Kim Edenfield and Greenfield’s Katie McCall have been selected to play in the West Tennessee Golden Circle All-Star Classic this Saturday night in Jackson.
The annual contest pits the top recently graduated senior basketball players from northwest Tennessee against athletes from southwest Tennessee in an all-star game format.
The girls game is scheduled to begin at 6 on Saturday night at Liberty High School’s gymnasium in Jackson. An all-star boys game is scheduled to follow at 7:30 that evening, but no athletes from Weakley County are slated to compete in the boys contest. Cost to attend is $5.
Rechis, who is the all-time leading Lady Charger scorer and a signee with Florida Gulf Coast University, guided her team to the Class AA state tournament semifinals. McCall was a big part of the state-ranked Lady Jackets’ second-place finish in both the District 14-A regular season and tournament. Edenfield and Frazier combined to propel the Lady Bulldogs to within a victory of advancing to the Class A state tourney.
Other members of the North All-Star team are UT Martin signees and former Gibson County standouts Heather Butler, Heather Griffin and Aubrey Reedy; Bethel signee and Bradford star Molly Wallsmith; Northeast Mississippi signee and Humboldt leader Patra Hubbard; and Peabody’s Raechelle Bolden.
