While the game has been cancelled once again, the Rotary All-Star Classic kept up its tradition of picking and honoring the top senior players from Vermont’s D1 and D2 high school teams.

2021 is the 37th year that seniors were nominated by coaches for selection and divided into two teams on both the girls’ and the boys’ side.

“This year the game will not be played for safety reasons, said Jeff Cabanaw, chairman for the classic. “However, the Rotary All-Star teams have been picked so the kids will at least get recognition for all their hard work.”

Among the seniors selected, 10 are Essex High students.

The Hornets chosen for the girls’ team were:

  • Hannah Himes, forward
  • Abigail Robbins, forward
  • Courtney Himes, defense
  • Sophia Forcier, goalie

The Hornets chosen for the boys’ team were:

  • Ryan Clark, forward
  • Max Line, forward
  • Owen Young, forward
  • Joe Maher, defense
  • Tobias Martin, defense
  • Will Couture, defense

“Typically, this would be the final high school game that the players will participate in,” said Cabanaw. “It is a day of emotion and celebration for parents and for players. I look forward to getting back to normal with the 2022 Classic.”
