Allderdice senior Sierra Fordham recently played in one of the area's top all-star games.

Saturday, she'll play in another.

Fordham will take part in the Hoops for a Cure event at Chartiers Valley High School. Fordham's Class AA/City League all-star team will play the Class A all-stars at 3 p.m. The game will be the first of four in the 19th annual event.

Fordham, a guard, averaged 22.9 points per game this season and was named City League Player of the Year and Class AAAA third-team all-state.

Two weeks ago, Fordham played in the Roundball Classic at Geneva College. She was named co-MVP of her game after scoring 13 points.

Saturday, Fordham's teammates will include Avonworth's Mackenzie Mayernik, Bishop Canevin's Johnie Olkosky, Brentwood's Lauren McGowan, Charleroi's Mia Woytovich, Chartiers-Houston's Addy Knetzer, Fort Cherry's Rachel Bellhy and Jenna Lucas, Freedom's Joanne Barlamas, Jeannette's Monique Redman, and Seton-LaSalle's Naje Gibson and Yacine Diop.
