After leading the East Union Lancers to their fourth straight Valley Oak League championship and 10th consecutive Sac-Joaquin Section playoff berth, head coach Jim Agostini will get to take a curtain call when he guides one of the squads in the 15th Annual Six-County All-Star Game.

Tip-off is scheduled for 6 p.m. at Modesto Christian High School in the girls game, with a boys game to follow at 8 p.m. Nearly 50 of the area’s top graduating seniors will participate in the showcase that will feature both games, a 3-point shootout and slam-dunk contest.

“It’s an honor to have an opportunity to coach a game like this,” Agostini said. “With these types of games, as coaches, you just don’t want to get too much in the way.

“It’s their night; it’s their moment to show off their skills one more time before they move on.”

Agostini will be coaching a pair of his players in the contest, as Rachel O’Neal and Krystal Young will be participating. The pair combined to help the Lancers outlast a talented group of VOL squads, and now will try and close out impressive high school careers with one more victory.

The area’s lone male invitee is guard Ernie Pimentel,  who led Manteca High to its second straight VOL championship.

“Those two girls have just been a pleasure to coach,” Agostini said.
Weston Ranch will also be representing the VOL, as its standout perimeter shooter Courtney Duran will also be participating on Agostini’s squad.
