First Presbyterian Christian Academy girls’ basketball player Aaliyah Wilson has been picked to represent her school in Saturday’s Georgia-South Carolina all-star game in Augusta.
“She was selected and will be playing in the Georgia Independent School Association All-Star game,” Lady ’Lander coach Rosby Frasier said. “The game will be held in Augusta, and it’s the first time FPCA has a female basketball player chosen to the squad. She will be playing alongside 12 other Georgia all-stars against the South Carolina all-stars.”
Frasier said Wilson was a standout player all season, averaging 23 points and two assists per game.
Wilson, whose season high in points was 29, was the team’s captain and was picked for the GISA Class 2-AA all-region team.
Frasier said she and the school are excited for Wilson’s opportunity to play this weekend.
“She is a very good player on the court,” Frasier said. “She’s been a leader for us the past three years and is also doing well academically.”
The coach said she thinks this could open the door for future all-star selections for FPCA.
“We do have good athletes at FPCA and we just want to be competitive, and this will give her an opportunity to showcase her talent in front of college scouts and others,” she said.
