Area athletes named to All-Star teams
Three area high school athletes were recently named to All-Star teams by the Arkansas Activities Association.
Abby Wallace of Harrisburg was named to the East volleyball squad as Rachel Lard and Alexis Slaughter were named to the East cheer team.
Lard and Slaughter were both selected as All-Americas at summer camp in Panama City Beach, FL with Lard also earning all-state honors. Slaughter has been asked to be an instructor for the Universal Cheerleaders Association for the 2016 summer camps. "I am excited to get to coach these ladies at the all-star game. They are both great leaders and it has been a pleasure to work with them the last two years," EPC cheer coach Payton Weathers said.
