The annual City-County Basketball Game is set for 7 p.m. Friday night at the Pike County High School gymnasium. All proceeds benefit the American Heart Association. Annette Toney, assistant coordinator, said everyone is encouraged to come out, enjoy a couple of fun – if not great – basketball games and support this very worthwhile cause.

"We have a fun night planned and we hope everyone will support us in the fight against heart disease," Toney said. "In addition to the women’s basketball game and the very competitive game between the Pike County Sheriff’s Department and the City of Brundidge Police Department, we’ll have door prizes and special entertainment at the half of each game."

Merchants who have not donated a door prize but would like to support this local fundraiser for the

American Heart Association are asked to contact Toney at 566-7270 Ext. 5227 or 670-6761.

"We will announce the names of the businesses that donate door prizes as an incentive to shop at home," Toney said.

The rosters for the women’s teams have been announced.

Team members of the Pike County Lady All-Starzzs are: Lisa Hartman, captain, Crystal Fendley, Amanda Young, Teresa Pryor, Leneshia Pryor, Pam Nix, Brandy Long, Earmine Money, Judy Tillery, Delilah Baker, Mary B. Johnson, Tasha Howard, Wanda Moultry, Eula Douglas, Carla Starks, Terra Townsy, Arlesha Lane, Katie Parker and Camille Thomspon. Darrius Carlisle will coach All-Starzzs.

Atica Helms is the captain of the Pike County Lady Blazers. Team members are Mary Alice Leverette, Sabrena Wingard, Debra Pinchon, Sarah Jones, Shirley Tuck, Darlene Hill, Lana Johnson, Annie Percy, Barbara Shipman, Natalie Vidal, Athenia Smith, Olympia McGill, Melissa White, Diana Canty, Felicia Thomas, Alexis Collier, Shirley Hooten, Annettte Toney, Peggy Scott and Rosalyn Haskin. The coach of the Lady Blazers is Carl Hollis.

The members of the Sheriff’s depatment and the Brudidge PD will "play" themselves.

Admission to Hoops 2002 is $2, but additional donations to the American Heart Association are very much appreciated.
