Victors at the event all agree it serves as a confidence booster for the regular season, which begins this weekend. Regardless of the outcome, each All-Star was honored to be selected, receiving valuable experience they can take with them into future competitions.

Funds raised at the preview go toward a scholarship for one of the participants going towards higher education.
