Several local players make East/West All-Star game

The inaugural East/West all-star girls basketball game, to be held April 23 at 6:30 p.m. at Whittier College, has a pretty substantial local flavor, as five county players have been added to the East’s roster. San Bernardino guard Jasmine Ray, Summit guard Adrienne Thomas, Alta Loma forward Sylvia Shepherd, Colony guard Te’onna Campbell and Upland Christian forward Destinee Duncan are all scheduled to play as of now.
