The high school basketball season begins tonight and the 14th Region All “A” Classic will occur at the beginning of the season. While Lee County and Breathitt County did not play last year, the two teams will begin this season against each other in the All “A” Classic.
Lee County returns the vast majority of last year’s team that won four games against 14th Region teams. As for this season’s team, the Lady Kats have no seniors and the only junior is center Morgan Hinkle. While Hinkle did not play in any games last year, she averaged 10.9 points per game and 9.7 rebounds per game as a freshman.
Breathitt County also won four 14th Region games last season. The Lady Cats averaged 35.7 rebounds per game last year, which ranked 13th in the state and second in the region. Breathitt County returns several players from last season’s team and has a number of talented players in both the backcourt and frontcourt. Seniors, Kaylee Clemons, Rheagan Stallard, and Emalie Vanover will lead the charge along with returning players Adreonna Schutz, Emalee Watts, Kaylea Ritchie, Riley Bush, and Maddie Haddix, along with new addition Emily Neace.
Coach Derek Goff’s team is likely to have a very successful season.
The winner of this game is scheduled to play June Buchanan on Wednesday night.
