After a nearly 10-year absence, the City/County All-Star Girls Volleyball Game has been resurrected by Hoover coach Christina Nelson.
It returns Friday at Hoover's Event Center as a two-game event, the first for players from schools in Divisions III through V at 5:30 p.m. and the second for players from schools in Divisions I through III at 7:30 p.m.
Bee All-Stars Alli O'Banion (Dos Palos), Deja Manning (Hoover), Katie Grant (Minarets) and Melissa Samaniego (Woodlake) are among the 43 players scheduled to participate.
Edison's Luke McFadden (City) and El Diamante's Leslie Sorensen and Lemoore's Rachel Taylor (County) are the coaches for the Division I-III match. Lisa Schofield (Dos Palos) and McLane's Jesse Garcia will coach the North County and against the South County's Tori Johnson (Woodlake) and Tarin Brown (Kingsburg) in the Division III-V match.
Girls who play club volleyball will be admitted free if they bring their ID card or wear their team jersey.
