It has been a very exciting and successful season for the Sandhill Ballers, Sandhill Lady Ballers and Sandhill Jr. Ballers.
The teams ended their 2013 season with an awards banquet held at the home site, Pleasant Grove A.M.E. Zion Church. The program was opened by Rev. Tucker, pastor of Pleasant Grove A.M.E. Zion Church.
The team members also participated in the program by bringing the welcome address, reading of Scripture, prayer and a special tribute to the president of Starbound Youth Association II, Larry Davie.
The players were presented with trophies and honor roll awards by Coach Larry Davis, Coach Charles Miller, Coach Shaun McClendon and Coach Ernest Davis.
Prestigious leaders of the community brought forth a message to the players. The special guests were, Irene Avery, Vice President and Chairperson of the NAACP, Jordan McCoy, Varsity Basketball Head Coach at Chesterfield High School, Wayne Chapman, Professor at Virginia College of Florence, S.C., and Rev. William Ellis of Angelus Chapel A.M.E. Zion Church.
