BUCKHANNON – My Buckhannon is proud to present another edition of the Hank Ellis All-Stars. Each week we will select a female and male athlete at Buckhannon-Upshur that has had an exemplary week on the football field, soccer field, volleyball court or the cross country course.
Our Hank Ellis All-Stars for the week of October 17 – October 23 are Elijah Bryant and Mia Sappey.
