The 14-under Shooting Stars girls team recently
netted its age group's sub-state championship in the Youth
Basketball of America (Y.B.O.A.) tournament.
With the title under its belt, the Shooting Stars
are now preparing for the state championships slated to be
played in Murfreesboro on June 4-6.
If the team should come out successful in state
play, it will advance to the nationals, being played in Cocoa
Beach, Fla., July 3-10.
Local players on the team include Elizabethton's
Michaela Pietrowski, Brianne Gouge and Mariah Pietrowski,
as well as Happy Valley's Jennifer Black and Courtney Byers.
