Brown and Moore were named to play in Wednesday’s Midsouth Association of Independent Schools All-Star game on Sept. 25. This is both of the players first time playing in this All-Star game.

Moore said being named to play in the All-Star game is her No. 1 ranked accomplishment, among athletic and scholastic accomplishments.

“I’m really honored to play in the All-Star game,” Moore said about this achievement. “ It’s really exciting and I can’t wait to see how it goes.”

When Brown heard her name called, Brown said she couldn’t believe she was called.

“I really didn’t think it was me. I don’t get many sports awards,” Brown said. “ I get more academic awards. I was kind of shocked.”

This season, Moore and Brown helped the Lady Green Wave win the MAIS Division II South in Class 4A. Lady Green Wave would face East Rankin Academy in the first round.

“This was probably one of our best seasons,” Brown said about the Lady Green Wave’s success. “We worked as a team well, communicated well and there was a stronger bond than in previous years.”

The MAIS All-Star game is set to start at 4 p.m. Wednesday at Jackson Preparatory School soccer field.

“It makes me kind of nervous because I know all of the bigger teams are going to be good,” Moore said about playing in the All-Star game. “I’m excited for the chance that it’s giving me to play against harder competition and different people.”
