Holt to Represent SC in All-Star Classic

By Brock Bondurant

Lady Tiger fans have had the luxury of watching the #4 of the blue and white, speed around the basketball court at SCR-1 for four years. Her aggressive, in-your-face defense and quality ball-control skills as a point guard made Cali Holt stand out as a premier basketball star. It is these same tools that earned her a spot on the Missouri roster of the McDonald's/Herald Whig All-Star Classic, held in Quincy, Illinois this coming Saturday.

Cali, although a very capable offensive threat (7.1 points per game), was primarily selected for her superb play on defense. "Out of all the players I've coached over the years", says former SC girls basketball coach Jaryt Hunziker, "Cali is definitely one of the best defenders I've ever had [play for me]. Her effort on defense was contagious. Other girls fed off of her energy." Holt, who averaged 2.7 steals per game her senior year, will be joined on the Missouri squad by other area stars and former rivals Kathleen Hinkle (Knox County), Megan Brennan (Clark County), Katie Shuman (Canton), and Randi Lee Plunkett, Jessica Redd, and Rachelle Sharp (All 3 of Marion County). "It will be fun to play with [my former opponents] and see them in a different light", says Holt. Also on the team are Paige O'Bryan (Monroe City), Katie Serbin (Palmyra), and Cassidy Trenhaile (Hannibal). Coaching the Missouri squad is Mike Johnson and assistant Ryan Wood, both of Marion County.

Cali, who participated in the NEMO Officials all-star game in Kirksville last Saturday, is finally faced with the fact of a final game. "It's surreal to know that this is my last game. I am looking forward to competing one last time, but it is difficult to comprehend this as being my final game." The SC graduate says she will miss playing basketball for the Lady Tigers, as will the fans surely miss watching her.

The McDonald's/Herald Whig All-Star Classic will be played Saturday, June 9th @ 5:00p.m. at Quincy University's Pepsi Arena with the boys' game to follow. Come support Holt and other local Missouri stars as they battle against the all-stars of Illinois. Tickets can be purchased at the Quincy Herald Whig and both Quincy McDonald's locations for just $5 (good for both games). Children 5 and under get in free. Ticket sales go to the McDonald's/Herald Whig Classic Scholarship at Quincy University.

Last second scheduling change will allow former Scotland County standout Harley Stone to play in the boys' game. Stone was selected to play in this all-star game, but elected instead to play in the MHSBCA baseball all-star game held the same day in St. Joseph, MO. That baseball game has been rescheduled for the following day, giving Harley a chance to participate in both events. Stone averaged 13.4 points and 6.8 rebounds a contest as a Tiger senior.
