Cager Classic games slated for Saturday
A basketball tradition continues this weekend, as the top seniors from all over the area will gather at Highlands High School for the annual Cager Classic all-star games.
Angelena Borriello and Griffin Myers will represent Plum at the 17th annual event.
The skills competitions — featuring hot-shot and 3-point contests — will be Friday at 7 p.m. The girls all-star game will be Saturday at 6 p.m., and the boys contest is set for 8.
Borriello and Myers will be on the court with other standout players from Apollo-Ridge, Burrell, Deer Lakes, Ford City, Fox Chapel, Freeport, Hampton, Highlands, Kiski Area, Kittanning, Knoch, Leechburg, Mars, Riverview, Springdale, St. Joseph, Valley and West Shamokin.
Players from West Shamokin are new to the all-star games.
Myers will share the court on the East team with Nick Stone and Adam Robison from Plum nonsection rival Kiski Area, while Borriello will be on the same team with Alexa Yaksich and Rachel Ranii from section foe Fox Chapel and Kiski Area star Maddie Antone.
Last year, Plum graduates Regan Donatelli, Kelsey Robertson, Tarique Ellis and Nolan Cressler took part in the Cager Classic.
Cressler earned team-MVP honors after he scored a game-best 38 points — with five 3-pointers — for the East team in a 118-95 loss to the West in the boys game. Ellis added 10 points.

The East Hills Summer Tennis League is looking for new members for its 2013 season.
The league, which has been in existence since 1969, had more than 170 members in 2012 competing in 12 separate singles, doubles and mixed doubles divisions of varying skill levels.
The league is flexible — opponents are scheduled on a weekly basis, but they then can decide to play their match at a specific time and location of their choosing.
