The Lee County 12U All-Stars swept their way to the sectional championship and to a shot to play for the state championship this weekend, winning the SWAC (Statewide Athletics Commission) Central Sectional Tournament in Rocky Mount last Friday-Sunday.

The tournament title advances Lee County to the SWAC State Championships this Friday-Sunday in Selma.

The Lee County All-Stars went undefeated and had to defeat the same squad in back-to-back games, the semifinal and final, to win the tournament. Lee County won the championship game 57-38.

The All-Stars are coached by Jeff Yow, Barry Harrington and Pat Cross. The team is an all-star team from Lee County Parks and Recreation's winter league season.
