4 Observer-area stars named to Carolinas Classic All-Star rosters

Four Observer-area players have been named to the 2019 Carolinas Classic All-Star Basketball games.

The boys and girls all-star games match some of the top public school seniors in North Carolina against their S.C. counterparts. The game will be played March 23 at Wilmington Hoggard High School. There is a similar game for private school players played annually at Providence Day School.

This year, Morganton Freedom’s Fletcher Abee, the school’s all-time leading scorer, was named to the Carolinas Classic N.C. boys’ team, along with North Stanly’s Bryson Childress and Concord Cox Mill’s Caleb Stone-Carrawell, a Charlotte 49ers recruit.

Marion McDowell’s Brian McDowell is an assistant coach on the boys team.

UNC recruit Nia Daniel of Harrisburg’s Hickory Ridge High will play on the girls team. There were no Observer-area players named to the S.C. teams. Clover’s Bailey Jackson is an assistant coach on the S.C. boys team.

Tickets for the game will go on sale in March and will be $10 for adults and $5 for children.

In addition to playing the game, the student-athletes will participate in community service events, including visiting the New Hanover Regional Medical Center’s children’s hospital and four New Hanover County elementary schools.
