Rosters announced for March 6 County all-star basketball event

The annual Aroostook League Senior All-Star Basketball Game will be held at Caribou High School on Wednesday, March 6, with the girls’ game starting at 5:30 p.m. and the boys’ game at 7 p.m.

This is the final time for basketball fans in Aroostook County to watch many of the outstanding senior boys and girls basketball players display their skills on the hardwood.

Admission is $3 for students and $5 for adults.

Proceeds from the game fund the Aroostook League Scholarship program. Last year, the Aroostook League awarded 10 $400 scholarships at the annual Aroostook League Scholar/Athlete Banquet held in March at Caribou High School. The scholarship winners were chosen by a drawing and the scholarships were awarded at the beginning of each student’s second semester of their first year in college.
