Darren Doyle, story:
Edmonson County senior Wildcat basketball member Griffin Spainhoward was honored at the Region 3 Tournament over the weekend by not only being named to the Region 3 All-Tournament Team, but also receiving a $500 scholarship.
The all-tournament team is voted upon by coaches and the award recipients are named based on Region 3 Tournament play.
The Ronnie Hardin Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a senior from the 3rd Region Basketball Official Association. Griffin had to submit an essay for the award. He spoke about the process for the submission.
"I took some time to sit down and really think about what basketball has meant to me and how it would prepare me for college. I thought that the teamwork skills and hard work aspects of basketball will carry on to my school work over the next few years, as well as prepare me for life."
Griffin is the son of the Eric and Lesley Spainhoward of Chalybeate.
