Varsity boys' basketball represented in county All-Star game

by Greg Kohn, Online Sports Editor
Senior Issy Melton has been named to the Montgomery County 4A All-Star Basketball team, and senior co-captain Milton Colquehoun was an honorable mention. Melton and Colquehoun recently led the boys' varsity basketball team in a victory over Wootton to advance to the regional semi-finals, the team's longest playoff run in over a decade.

Coaches pick players all over Montgomery County, based on season performances, to form all-star teams representing each division. Divisions are determined by school size, from the smallest (1A) to largest (4A). Melton will play in the 4A versus 3A All-Star game on March 19, at Montgomery College-Rockville at 7 p.m.

Melton has anchored Blair's defense all year, switching between forward and center, and is excited to play in the game. "It's truly an honor [to be selected]," Melton said. "I just hope I can go out, get some playing time and represent Blair well."
