Some of the Big Country and Concho Valley’s best athletes were on display this past week at the annual Fellowship of Christian Athletes All-Star games held in San Angelo and Abilene.
The week’s activities began Friday with the FCA North versus South baseball and softball games.

The FCA volleyball match was held Saturday at Abilene Wylie High School.
Lady Buckaroo Emma Davis was a member of the North All-Stars that were also victorious in a 25-23, 25-21 sweep
