Karlee played for the dark team and scored 4 fast break points. Although her team lost in a close game, Karlee was excited to be a part of the experience.
"I felt honored to be asked to play in the Colby All-Star game. Playing with some girls I knew and didn't know was really fun. The best part of the day was bowling after practice," said Karlee.
Josh played for the light team who won with a score of 116-111. Josh scored 8 points in the contest.
"It was a lot of fun to play with that many good players. It was a competitive game too, which made it even better," said Josh.
