Dah’Naija Barnes and Alvin West, two senior St. Thomas More Academy scholar athletes have
been chosen to participate in the 2018 Blue-Gold All-Star games.
Celebrating its 20th year, the Blue-Gold All-Star Basketball Games cap off the Delaware high school
basketball season and highlight the top 30 senior male and female players in the state. It is a
wonderful opportunity to recognize these young people in their final appearance on the high
school basketball stage in Delaware.
In addition to the games, the players are celebrated at the annual Blue-Gold All-Star Banquet on
Thursday of game week and are honored with a welcome and presentations at Legislative Hall in
Dover on Wednesday of game week.
The legacy of the Blue-Gold All-Star Basketball Games is the long-term effect that the success of
the event has on people with intellectual and developmental disabilities who participate in Best
Buddies Delaware. Financial support allows Best Buddies to deliver the mission of inclusion to
more and more people with disabilities in communities throughout the First State.
