“Three” seemed to be the magic number.

Three Ironton Fighting Tiger seniors athletes played in all-star games, and all three had strong outings including 5-foot-9 point guard Zac Carter who found another “3” to his liking.

Carter played in the annual Ohio High School Basketball Coaches’ North/South All-Star game at Otterbein College and helped the South Division III-IV All-Stars beat the North 102-89.

Carter shared the team lead with 23 points. His total included a game-high five 3-point goals.

Lady Fighting Tigers’ point guard Ariel Schweickart played in the Ohio/West Virginia BASF All-Star Game and scored 13 points to earn the game’s Most Valuable Player award.

The game featured players from Marietta, Fairland, Fort Frye, Warren and River.

West Virginia had players from Ravenswood, Paden City, St. Mary’s, Parkersburg, Williamstown and Richie County.

The game was held at Parkersburg (W.Va.) South High School.

Ironton 5-foot-10, 190-pound running back Patrick Lewis played in the Ohio High School Football Coaches’ North/South All-Star Game held at Dayton’s Welcome Stadium.

A second team All-Ohio standout, Lewis ran four times for 24 yards including a team-high 19-yard scamper.

However, the North managed to win the game 27-24 on a 56-yard field goal by Michael Geiger with 5:14 to play.
