Victoria College will host the VC/Chick-fil-A High School All-Star Volleyball Game on Monday.
The game will showcase the athletic talent of 24 volleyball players representing 15 area high schools.
Volleyball coaches from area high schools nominated their best senior players and submitted them to Pirates head volleyball coach Josh Moore, who then selected the All-Star team from among those nominations.
Players will be divided into two teams, the Maroon Team and the White Team, who will face off against each other.
The team who wins three games out of five will be declared the All-Star winner.
"This All-Star game is a great showcase of the talent in our local high schools, but we also provide these young women the opportunity to learn about VC and get excited about going to college," said Moore. "And if they do choose to begin their college education at VC, we'd love to have them join the VC Pirates women's volleyball program."
Refreshments and snacks, including Chik-fil-A sandwiches, will be available at the game.
