The honorary captains are set for the seventh annual Altoona Mirror Basketball Classic.
Courtney Kaup, Samantha Pollino, Ben Bithell and Ken Horoho Jr. will be recognized Friday night at Mount Aloysius College when the top seniors from Blair County and Central PA close their high school basketball careers.
"The honorary captains have added nostalgia to the Mirror Classic," Neil Rudel, organizer of the Classic, said. "Courtney, Samantha, Ben and Kenny were all great players, and we look forward to honoring them."
The girls game tips off at 6:30 p.m with the boys to follow.
Kaup graduated from Altoona Area High School in 1996, when she was the Mirror player of the year, and she contributed significantly to the Lady Lions' state championship teams in 1995 and '96.
She earned a scholarship to George Mason University, where she holds the school assist record for single game (16), season (189) and career (532).
Kaup is now a physical therapist in Burlington, Vt.
Pollino is a 2006 graduate of Conemaugh Valley High School, where she poured in 2,316 points and led the Lady Blue Jays to the PIAA Class A title game.
She was the 2006 Pennsylvania Class A player of the year and the outstanding player in the first Mirror Classic.
Pollino was a four-year starter at Duquesne, finishing with 1,437 points (fourth among Duquesne's all-time scoring leaders). She is currently pursuing a doctorate in physical therapy at Duquesne.
A former Central High School standout, Bithell holds the Blair County high school boys scoring record with 2,106 points. He was the Mirror player of the year in 1995, when he was also a third-team all-state selection.
He also holds the Central career record for rebounds with more than 1,000, and he won two District 6 track and field championships (triple jump and high jump).
Bithell has been coaching football in the Tussey Mountain program for five years.
Horoho is a 1973 graduate of Greater Johnstown High School and a 1977 graduate of St. Francis.
In high school, he was the point guard on one of Johnstown's most decorated teams, along with Don Maser and future NBA player Pat Cummings.
At St. Francis, he didn't play on a losing team, was a co-captain and contributed to victories over the likes of Duquesne, West Virginia, Penn State, Georgetown and 1977 Final Four participant North Carolina-Charlotte.
Horoho is an attorney in Pittsburgh.
