Danielle Savage (middle) watch a free throw approach the basket during the fifth annual all-star girls? basketball game Saturday at Hesston College between the Mid-Central Activities Association and the Heart of America League. The girls? and boys? games involved a total of 10 senior athletes and two coaches from the five schools in the Free Press distribution area that are members of one league or the other. The two leagues will be reconfigured next academic year, as are several other leagues across the state. The MCAA will be disbanded, and the HOA is receiving and losing members. For a report of the two all-star games and the future leagues of local schools, see Page 9A.
