1976 Team To Be Honored Tonight At ECHS During Big "RED OUT" District Games VS. Grayson County, Simon On Track To Score 1000
It's hard to believe, but it's been 40 years since the Edmonson County Wildcats cut down the nets as the 1976 state champions and they will be honored tonight at ECHS.
The Lady Cats and Wildcats will play a girl/boy doubleheader tonight against district rival Grayson County beginning at 6pm. That's enough excitement for anyone, but tonight will be especially emotional as players, cheerleaders, and staff from the legendary 1976 team will be recognized between games.
Sophomore Lady Cat guard Caitlin Simon is only 14 points away from reaching 1,000 points for her career, a milestone she's expected to achieve tonight. The Lady Cats look to avenge the Lady Cougars as they were defeated in Leitchfield during their last meeting.
The boys are looking to maintain a perfect district record after they defeated Grayson County on the road during their January 8 win. Oddly enough, Austin "Cuban" Sowders scored his 1,000th point during that game in the 58-55 victory.
Tonight will also be a "RED-OUT" at ECHS, so everyone is encouraged to wear your red Edmonson County gear and cheer on the Lady Cats and Wildcats as tonight's tip off is scheduled for 6pm.
You can also listen to the game live with Jamie and Wyn Caudill tonight on WildcatsLive beginning around 5:45pm. Caudill stepped down from the regular broadcast team after last season, and the WildcatsLive crew is glad to have him fill in tonight as special guest commentator.
