CAL seniors set for All Star Saturday in Ocean City

Prime Events All Star Saturday will be held at the Ocean City Intermediate School on Saturday with top seniors from the Cape-Atlantic League facing off in the final two basketball games of four that celebrate the present and future of the CAL.

The games are being played at the Intermediate School because the high school was not available on Saturday.

The two high school games, starting at 3:30pm, will match the best CAL seniors. The all star teams were selected based on the all star voting of the league’s coaches.

In the Heist Agency Dixie Howell Memorial Boys Game, Wildwood Catholic’s Dave DeWeese and St. Augustine’s Paul Rodio will coach one team, Atlantic City’s Gene Allen and Pleasantville’s Butcfh Warner will coach the other.

In the Wonderland Pier Girls Game, Mainland’s Scott Betson and Atlantic City’s Jason Lantz will coach one team, Ocean City’s Paul Baruffi and Millville’s Jason Kessler will coach the other.

The coaches are determined by which teams go the furthest in the CAL Tournament.

At halftime of the girls game there will be a three-point shooting contest. Before the boys game, the boys will compete in a three-point shootout. Then, at halftime of the boys game, the girls and boys three-point champions will go head-to-head.

The three-point contests are the Beth Hartman Memorial Shootouts and each winner will receive a college scholarship from the Hartman family.

During the two high school games, the 24th annual Boo Pergament Memorial Awards will be presented to the CAL’s most improved players, co-sponsored by William Schoppy Inc. and the Ocean City PBA.

The day starts at noon with two games featuring middle school girls and boys from the CAL area against teams from Camden County. At halftime of each midle school game there will be a foul-shooting contest.

The MVP in the high school boys game will receive the Dave Lewis Memorial MVP Award.

Sponsors for the event include the City of Ocean City, Gillian’s Wonderland Pier, Thomas H. Heist Insurance, the Ocean City PBA, Ocean City Free Public Library, Cape May County officials, Ocean City Aquatic & Fitness Center and the Ocean City FMBA.

Admission is $6 for the day with portions of the proceeds going to the Edythe T. Selvagn Memorial Scholarship Fund.
