In order to be eligible to compete in an all-star game, athletes must be nominated by a coach who is an active member of the LHSCA, and they must be on schedule to graduate at the end of the school year. The sports of volleyball, basketball, softball, baseball, football and soccer all hold all-star games, and Louisiana Coca Cola Bottlers is the official sponsor of the all-star series.
All-Star games move around the state to better showcase the senior student-athletes’ talents. High school senior athletes are submitted for their individual sports and are placed on either the East or West squads depending on their schools’ location. A committee of coaches selects both teams.
The volleyball all-star game was held Nov. 17 at Isidore Newman High School in New Orleans. To view a list of senior participants in this year’s volleyball all-star game, visit the Volleyball section of our website at www.lhsaa.org.
