Twenty-four outstanding junior volleyball players from across the state have been named to the North-South squads for the 16th annual Alabama All-Star Sports Week competition scheduled in Montgomery July 9-13, according to an announcement by Alvin Briggs, Director of the Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association (AHSADCA).
The two teams will square off Thursday (July 12) at Faulkner University at 4 p.m.
Sports Week, which also includes in-state all-star games in soccer, baseball, girls and boys basketball, softball and football, will also feature the Summer Conference with clinics and special sessions for coaches, principals, athletic directors, cheerleader coaches and officials.
Also, an All-Sports Equipment Expo and other related activities are scheduled throughout the week. Two of the highlights will be the Sportsmanship Banquet honoring all schools that have not had an ejection or fine during the 2011-12 school year and the Championship Coaches Awards Banquet that will conclude the week. Highlighting the banquet July 13 will be the naming of the 2011-12 Making A Difference Coaches of the Year.
