SPRING VALLEY — A trio of local girls’ basketball players were able to hit the court one last time last month in Spring Valley.
Becca Moll, a 2017 graduate of Glenwood City High School, and Morgan Kuhn, a member of Boyceville’s Class of 2017, were selected to participate in the 28th Annual Western Wisconsin All-Star basketball classic game at Spring Valley June 12.

Moll’s mother, Katie, said she was proud her daughter was nominated and chosen to participate.
“The event in itself was a lot of fun,” Moll said. “You could see the girls still felt competitive, but in a fun way.”
Hellmann explained the game was played by splitting all the girls selected as all-stars into two teams. She could not remember the score, but knows the team she was on lost.
She also said she was thrilled to be asked.
“I wasn’t part of the original selection, but when one girl dropped out, Morgan called me and asked me if I wanted to play in a game with her one last time,” Hellmann said.
Attempts to reach Kuhn or her parents, Troy and Heather Kuhn, were not successful. Angie and Nick Hellmann are Brooklyn’s parents, but declined to comment on the game.
Moll’s parents are Katie and Brian Moll.
Several attempts were made to obtain game results and player statistics from Spring Valley, but no response was received prior to publication.
Players selected for the girls’ team were from Boyceville, Bruce, Durand, Glenwood City, Hudson, Osseo-Fairchild, Plum City/Elmwood, Thorp, Fall Creek and Turtle Lake. [/emember_protected]
