A major new event will debut this spring when the Raleigh Invitational is held over the weekend of April 22-24. The tournament will be managed and operated by the All Star Girls Report staff, and it will be run in conjunction with Insider Exposure and the Phoenix Express. The Raleigh Invitational will be played at Shaw University and other local facilities.
Five years ago, John McGraw of Inside Exposure began working with former Wake Forest standout Delaney Rudd on a spring event in Greensboro, NC, the hometown of the Express. In 2016, McGraw believes that event will take a major step forward with the move to Raleigh and the association with ASGR.
“The Deep South Classic is on the same weekend in Raleigh, and it just made sense that we wanted to be as close as possible to that incredible event,” McGraw explained. “We started talking to the people at the All Star Girls Report, and it all came together. We’re definitely excited about the move, and about working with the great staff at the All Star Girls Report.
“We are doing what we can to get these teams as much exposure as possible. You have tons of college coaches in Raleigh for the Deep South Classic, and we know that is going to help the teams in the Raleigh Invitational.”
