Rafferty's Vice President and Edmonson County native Scott Lindsey presented a check for $3,000 to Edmonson County High School Athletics last night in the final round of the Rafferty's/Double Dog's Caveland Classic.
Rafferty's has been the sponsor of the event for a decade as it has become a premier holiday basketball event in the area.
After the revival of the Caveland Classic in 2006, thanks to Lindsey and Rafferty's, Lindsey knew that this was something he wanted to continue to support.
"After that first year I became so impressed with our kids, parent involvement, and the coaches that I knew this tourney partnership needed to continue," he said. "And it will, as long as the school will have us, if it's always my decision."
The Lady Cats swept all three of their games with a 63-19 win over Russellville, a 60-46 win over Bardstown, and a 51-30 win over Barren County.
The Wildcats won two of three of their games, losing to Ohio County 52-45, notching an emotional 59-58 win over Clinton County in the final seconds, and a miraculous victory over Barren County with Daniel Caudill's half court shot at the buzzer for a 57-55 Wildcat win.
