It's time for the third annual Regional All-Stars Gala!
BENNINGTON — This year, the Banner and Journal are getting a jump-start on our Regional All-Stars event.
Starting today, we will begin the reveal of our fall athletes for our third annual Bennington Banner and Manchester Journal Regional All-Stars, which will take place on June 25, 2019, at a place and time to be determined.
In the coming weeks and months, top student-athletes and coaches in their respective sports from Arlington Memorial High School, Burr and Burton Academy, Cambridge Central School, Hoosick Falls Central School, Long Trail School, Mount Anthony Union High School and Stratton Mountain School will be announced and featured in the Banner and Journal.
Athletes and coaches will be honored in 21 interscholastic sports sanctioned by the governing bodies of Vermont and New York state high school sports.
Those athletes and coaches get to attend the ticketed dinner event for free, get recognized on stage for their sporting achievements, and get to meet and greet the evening's honored guest.
For the first two events, we had three-time Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas and eight-time X-Games gold medalist Nate Holland as our keynote speakers.
The event earned first place from the New England Newspaper and Press Association as the best of its kind in 2017.
