High school soccer and lacrosse standouts from East Coweta will get a final chance to take the field this spring during annual DiVarsity All-Star Games to be played this weekend in Cobb County.

It begins with four All-Star soccer events on Saturday, followed by three lacrosse games on Sunday.

Lady Indians teammates Brookelyn Still, Ellie Watson and Adriana Garcia will be members of the White Team squad in the first of two girls soccer games on Saturday at Sprayberry High in Marietta.

Still was a shutdown sophomore defender for East Coweta’s girls, who repeated as Region 2-7A champions this spring and reached the Class 7A Sweet 16. She posted three assists during a 13-6-1 campaign.

Garcia finished with 11 goals and five assists while playing both at striker and in the midfield. Watson, meanwhile, finished with nine goals and two assists playing center midfield.

East Coweta will also have seniors Sam Briggs, Baylor Asher and Peter Walker playing for the blue squad in the first of two boys All-Star games starting at 2 p.m.

Asher, a midfielder who signed with Clayton State, led the Indians with 14 goals and nine assists, while Palmer was a shutdown defender on East Coweta’s back line that added three assists in a 12-6-3 campaign.

East Coweta will also have players participating in Sunday’s DiVarsity All-Star Lacrosse games at Sprayberry in addition to a selection for Lady Indians head coach John Perkerson.

The second of two girls games at 12 p.m., will include Perkerson and Alpharetta coach Brandon Allen coaching a Blue Team roster including East Coweta junior Anna Rob- bins and senior Caitlyn Moore.
