The Patriots continue to dominate everyone in their path. The Patriots picked up three wins this last week with one of them being against defending state champions, Covington Catholic in the Rowan County Challenge. First half would be close throughout but the third quarter would be what sealed it for KCC when they went on to a 21-7 run during the third quarter on their way to a 78-66 thrashing of the Colonels. Camron Justice and Evan Hall combined for 55 of Knott Central’s 78 points. Camron finished with 29 while Evan chipped in with 26.

4.Letcher County Central (7-2):

The Cougars participated in the Hyden Citizens Bank Shootout at Leslie County this weekend.
