Rickman Elementary basketball player Ellie Butler has been chosen to participate in the East vs. West Classic All-Star game which showcases the top twenty 8th grade girls and boys basketball players in the East Tennessee region. This game is a celebration of these elite athletes as they complete their middle school careers and begin their bright futures as standout players for their respective high school programs. The game will take place Thursday, March 25th at Knoxville Catholic High School at 6:30 p.m. with the boys’ game to follow at approximately 7:45 p.m.
Ellie’s stats speak for themselves, but she brings so much more to the game with her work ethic, toughness, and lead by example mentality. Overton County is very proud of Ellie on and off the floor and would like to wish her the best of luck in the All-Star celebration.
