Corbin goes 3-0 in Redhound Shootout

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons/Staff Writer

The Corbin Middle School 6th grade basketball team remained unbeaten on the season and stand at 10-0, thanks to a three-game sweep of Saturday action during the Redhound Shootout at Corbin’s Edwards Gym.

The Redhounds knocked off Williamsburg 51-21 in the early morning game, followed by a 50-19 win over Rockcastle County and a 66-27 victory over South Laurel.

Head coach Jimmy Hendrickson Jr. said he was more than pleased with the weekend effort as well as the way his team is playing this season.

“We played really well this weekend and we got to use a lot of people, which makes it even better because everyone contributed to the win,” he said. “We’ve got a lot of really good athletes and a group of kids that really enjoy playing together as a team.

“Whenever you have kids that play like this team, it makes it a lot of fun to watch,” Hendrickson Jr. added. “As good as these kids are, they’re always looking for coaching and looking for a way to get better as a team. They don’t ever think they’re as good as they can get, so that makes you want to do even more as a coach.”
