Congratulations to Beddingfield senior Jean Best who was chosen to play for the North Carolina side against South Carolina in the 2008 Carolina Classic All-Star Game in Charlotte's Bobcats Arena on April 5.
Best, a 6-foot-4 center who has signed with East Carolina University, will be joined on the N.C. team by her 3-A Eastern Carolina Conference nemesis Brittani Billups from Eastern Wayne. The pair, along with Wake Forest-Rolesville's Terrica Jones, are the only girls from schools east of Raleigh on the team.
The N.C. head coach is Marty Stanley of Kernersville Glenn while Rocky Mount's Pam Gainey is the assistant coach. Fike head coach George Drawhorn will serve as an assistant to the N.C. boys head coach Butch Blalock of Gastonia Highland Tech.
