MONTGOMERY, AL -- The 2013 North-South all-star baseball teams for the 17th annual Alabama All-Star Sports Week competition were announced Tuesday by Alvin Briggs, Director of the Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association (AHSADCA).
The two teams, comprised of current junior student-athletes from across the state, will play at Riverwalk Stadium, the home of the Southern League’s Montgomery Biscuits, Monday, July 15.
All-Star Sports Week, set for July 15-20, includes in-state all-star games in soccer, volleyball, softball, basketball and football in addition to the AHSAA Summer Conference with clinics and special sessions for coaches, principals, athletic directors, cheerleader coaches and contest 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, which honors all schools that have not had an ejection or fine during the 2012-13 school year, and the Championship Coaches Awards Banquet, which recognizes coaches whose teams won a state championship in the 2012-13 school year as well as the 2013 Making A Difference Award winners.
The North All-Stars will be coached by Roger Wright of Buckhorn, Jason Fuller of Deshler, Brandon Brown of Winterboro and Pat Hamrick of Thompson. St. James’ Keith Lucky, will serve as the North administrative coach.
Coaches for the South All-Stars are Brent Boyd of Spanish Fort, Larry Cotney of Kinston, Ab Argent of Thorsby and Kevin Hall of Holtville. Trinity Presbyterian’s Ken Whittle will serve as the South’s administrative coach.
