(St. Leon, Ind.) – For the first time in school history, an East Central varsity basketball player has been named an Indiana All-Star. 

Senior guard Hope Fox was selected to the Indiana Girls All-Star Team on Tuesday.

Those chosen to the team will play three games in June, including one exhibition game against the Indiana Junior All-Stars as well as a home-and-home contests against the Kentucky All-Stars.

The Junior-Senior exhibition game is set for June 8 at a site to be announced.

The first game against Kentucky will be June 10 at the Owensboro Sportscenter in Owensboro, Ky. The final game against Kentucky will be June 11 at Southport Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. The games in Indianapolis are at Southport because Gainbridge Fieldhouse is unavailable because of a third phase of renovations will be occurring there during June.

The Indiana senior girls lead the series with Kentucky 51-39.

Fox will be joined on the Indiana All-Star Team by Miss Basketball and UConn commit Ayanna Patterson (Homestead), two Michigan commits in Kate Clarke (Carmel) and Alyssa Crockett (Westfield), Maryland commit Mila Reynolds (South Bend Washington) and Purdue commit Lilly Stoddard (Crown Point). 

The Lady Trojans' star will also play college ball at Southern Connecticut State University, and her list of accolades is lengthy. 

Some of Fox's senior accolades include IBCA Senior First Team All-State, IBCA Academic All-State First Team, EIAC All-Conference and Team Defensive MVP. She was also selected to play in the HBCA All-Star Classic on April 3.

This season, Fox averaged 14.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 2.9 steals per game, helping the Lady Trojans to their third-straight sectional championship. 

She will leave East Central with the record for most made three-point baskets, three-point field goal percentage, and free throw percentage.

At the Indiana vs. Kentucky All-Star Game, Fox will have the opportunity to once again be coached by Kevin Moore, who was selected to the Indiana All-Stars coaching staff last month.

  • Costume Swap at the Dearborn County Recycling Center

    The Dearborn County Recycling Center’s Costume Swap was created as an annual event offering customers the chance to share and reuse costumes that would otherwise only be worn once. Last year over 800 individuals used the program. The program saves money and reduces waste by reusing items that otherwise would only be used once. Over 1,000 costumes for adults and children are available. Masks, wigs, makeup, accessories, treat bags and décor are also available. All available costumes are clean and in good condition, with many being brand new. The sizes of costumes range from infant and toddler to adult sizes. Costume Swap even has a small selection of pet costumes. Participants are asked to bring a costume that is clean, in ready-to-wear condition, and free of rips, tears, and stains. To be considered for exchange, all costumes must also be complete with original items, including masks and accessories that came with the costume originally. Those without a costume to exchange are asked to make a cash donation to the reuse program. Shopping times and the number of guests allowed to shop at a time will be limited. Visit dearborncountyrecycles.com for more information. Participants should be prepared with a donation in case their costume is not accepted. The program does not operate as a charity. Costume Swap is open to everyone; it is not exclusively for Dearborn County residents.
