Lightroom - Import only starred pictures?

Summary:  Is it possible to do an Import in Lightroom that will ONLY import pictures that have been starred/rated?

Background: Yesterday I took a ton of pictures at my nieces' swim meet.  During the break between the races I used my camera's feature that lets me rate each picture with 1-5 stars, which it embeds in the EXIF data of the RAW file.  This let me pick the handful of good pictures from the hundreds that I took.  I got home and took the SD card from the camera and put it into my computer, and was hoping that I could instruct Lightroom to ONLY copy the files with a certain star rating....but couldn't find a way to do that.  Instead I had to import ALL the files (which took forever as it copied them to my hard drive) and then filter by star rating and delete the non-starred pictures.

Is there a way to avoid copying all the non-starred pictures to my hard drive as part of the Import step?

If it's useful, the camera in question is a Sony A7iii.

Thanks!
