Each year the Rockford Register Star and The Journal-Standard of Freeport recognize the best of the best in area high school sports.
At the end of June, each of the athletes will be celebrated at our All Star Preps event at the BMO Harris Bank Center. Last year, Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky headlined the banquet.
Athletes selected for our All Star Preps teams are eligible for a free ticket to the banquet. The procedure for acquiring free tickets will be announced at a later date.
The banquet also is open to family members, friends and the general public.
Today, we announce the best girls volleyball players in the region.
