Olympic High player chosen for All-Star Classic

BJ Gladden of Olympic High School will join 40 of the top North and South Carolina high school seniors chosen to represent their school and state in the 16th annual Carolinas All-Star Basketball Classic March 22-23 in Myrtle Beach.

While their coaches initially nominate players, the North and South Carolina Coaches’ Associations make the final selection. The in-depth nomination process, which takes into consideration each player’s academic and athletic ability, adds to the prestige of the event.

The two-day event attracts about 4,500 fans from throughout the Carolinas.

Tickets may be purchased in advance or day of the event. For more information, visit carolinaallstarclassic.com or call 843-213-0032.
