Hannah Kennelly – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- The Manatee vs. Sarasota All-Star boys’ basketball games will be held at Friday, April 6 at LRHS. Three boys from the Mustang basketball team were chosen to play in the game. Seniors Evan Spiller, Jack Kelley, and Damien Gordon will represent the school. They will be joined by girls senior all-stars India Searls, Kayla Bell, Sarah Fazio, and Emma Fazio.
Spiller said, “The all-star game is a fun opportunity to play with and against all your friends you’ve been playing since middle school or growing up with.”
Spiller added, “For some it is a last opportunity to play in front of college coaches. Being on an all-star star team is an honor, you’re being recognized as being one of the best players in the area and you get to represent your school at the same time.”
The best seniors from the county are selected by the coaches from that county and have worked hard to earn their spots in the contest.
“Please come see these special student athletes perform for the last time in their Lakewood Ranch jerseys,” said LRHS boys basketball head coach Jeremy Schiller.
