Perhaps Atherton's most acclaimed players were All-American  Charlie Tyra (1950's)  and Rick Wilson (1980's....I believe), both of whom played at UL.    So, it's been a while, yes.   Charlie's son is the AD at UL.

Rick Wilson was a senior at Atherton in 1974.  It was a good year for high school basketball in Kentucky - along with Rick Wilson (U of L), Jack Givens was at Bryan Station (UK), James Lee at Henry Clay (UK), Kenny Higgs at Owensboro (LSU), Bob Lindsay at Ballard (Florida),Robert Miller at Central (Cincinnati).

🏀 Looking for a small gym with both character and championship pedigree? Welcome to the cozy confines of "The Finn" at Covington Holy Cross.

Completed in time for the Indians run to the 1965 Boys Sweet 16 final, the gym features mid-century modern wooden beams, and all 780 seats offer great views of "George Schneider Court." 50 years later Holy Cross would hoist the 2015 Girls Sweet 16 Championship banner. I love this place; lots of great memories here.

The Rev. Thomas B. Finn Activity Center ~ In the stands and on the court, at the corner of 36th and Church Streets in Latonia.

Yes sir. Came in as Assistant Principle first, became baseball Head Coach in '73, then basketball Head Coach for the '75-'76 season.

I've always wanted to check out a game at Mason County's Fieldhouse, if for no other reason than to force @mcpapa buy me some popcorn.

Those pics are from last year.  We need pics prior to Covid with the gym completely packed for a Regional Tournament game!
