ABILENE â€” Three more recently-graduated Nolan County high school athletes were on the winning North teams Saturday for the conclusion of the three-day Big Country Chevy Dealers-Fellowship of Christian Ath-letes All-Star Festival.
Micaela Reschman, a 2014 Sweetwater High School graduate, was a member of the North volleyball team that won 25-16, 25-23 over the South in a game held at Wylie High Schoolâ€™s gym.
The North football team, which included both Kaleb Hoover of Sweetwater and Roscoeâ€™s Shelton Toliver, beat the South 14-11 a few hours later in their game at Abileneâ€™s Shotwell Stadium, which is known as the FCA Myrle Greathouse Big Country All-Star Classic. It was the Northâ€™s seventh straight win in the event, which is in its 15th year, while the volleyball game â€” which is in its second year â€” is now tied 1-1. Reschman was credited with three digs for the North, while Toliver â€” a receiver â€” had an eight-yard catch.
In Fridayâ€™s baseball game, James Clift of Sweetwater was the MVP as the North shut out the South 3-0 in the inaugural FCA game at San Angeloâ€™s Foster Field after getting the go-ahead single in the seventh inning and also pitching the first three innings with three strikeouts. Sweetwaterâ€™s Stephen May, one of five North pitchers in the game, earned the victory.
Highlandâ€™s Sierra Allen scored 17 points in leading the North girls to a 63-44 basketball victory over the South at Brownwood Coli-seum on Thursday and was also named MVP.
