 -  -  12


Bethel College will be hosting the returning Michiana McDonald’s All-Star game on Monday, March 26. The teams were recently announced, as many schools were competing in Regional and Semi-State. This is a much anticipated event because of all the local talent and quality teams. Players will be representing the following high schools: Mishawaka Marian, Elkhart Memorial, Penn, South Bend Washington, Niles, Mishawaka, Concord, North Judson, Warsaw, Plymouth, Triton, Northridge, South Bend Clay, Westview, Peru and Wawasee. One of the players that many will keep their eye on is Marian’s Demetrius Jackson, a junior guard who helped the Knights win their first Regional Championship. He will also be joined by his teammate Robert Mischler, who is committed to play at Cornell next year. South Bend Washington will be represented by Bo Calhoun, who assisted the Panthers in claiming a perfect 8-0 record in the Northern Indiana Conference. Calhoun has stated that he will continue his career at Ball State next season. Other top players include Warsaw’s Lucas Grose, who will be playing at Hillsdale College next year and Triton’s Clay Yeo, who will join the Valparaiso squad next season. Many Bethel students are excited to see the event come to Wiekamp and anticipate seeing some high-level basketball, including senior Pilot basketball player Steven Ward. “I am excited to see how talented these area players are,” said Ward. “ It is a very unique and fun opportunity.” The game will begin at 7 p.m. and admission is $5 for adults and $2 for children 12 and under.
