Edmonson Voice Sports:
Edmonson County Schools has announced another "Throwback Night" in "Wildcat Hall," the gym located at the Edmonson County 5/6 Center. The games (a girl-boy varsity double-header) will take place on Saturday, December 2, 2023. The girls will tip-off at 3 P.M against the visitors from Cumberland County with boys action to follow.
In addition to the games that afternoon, a reception and ceremony will be held honoring the 1974 Boys Basketball District Champions. The '74 team was the highest rated boys team thus far at Edmonson County (ranked #10 in the state) and was able to knock off #3-ranked Owensboro when that team traveled to Wildcat Hall on January 18, 1974 (92-90). All players, support staff, and their families are invited to attend the reception (Saturday, December 2 at 3 P.M. in the 5/6 Center Cafeteria) and ceremony (halftime of the boys game vs. Cumberland County in Wildcat Hall). Anyone planning to attend the reception should RSVP the number in their party to Jamie Carnes by Monday, November 27th, (firstname.lastname@example.org or 270-597-8915).
