For the fifth consecutive year, Oakton played host to the Suburban Classic Sunday in Vienna. The 10th annual all-star game, sponsored by the Northern Virginia Women’s Basketball Coaches’ Association, featured 20 of the best seniors in the Northern Region from the 6A and 5A North regions.
McLean guard Cami Prock scored a team-high 12 points for an East squad that had four players register double figures in a 78-64 win over the West team. South Lakes guard Caitlin Jensen scored a game-high 22 points and hit four three-pointers.
Upon the game’s conclusion Oakton Coach Fred Priester announced the four NVWBCA scholarship winners: Mount Vernon guard Chanel Shannon, Stonewall Jackson guard Kayla Hix, Osbourn forward Bailey Dufrene and West Springfield guard Amy Berglund. Berglund also won the three-point competition earlier in the day.
The NVWBCA has given a scholarship to girls who plan on playing on the next level to aid in their tuition since 2003.
Madison senior Kelly Koshuta was named player of the year by the NVWBCA after averaging 24.3 points per game during the playoffs. Koshuta missed all of last season with an ACL tear and finished this season as the third-leading scorer in the area.

PHOTOS OF THE DAY:
WHAT TO WATCH FOR:
Baseball: Gonzaga (5-0) at Paul VI (3-1), 6 p.m.
The undefeated Eagles defeated WCAC foe O’Connell and won three games at a tournament in South Carolina while Paul VI fell to WCAC opponent Bishop Ireton in its lone loss at this point in the season. The Panthers won both matchups last season, and this should be a strong early season test in the WCAC.
