Jenkins won’t compete for district title this year; will open at Shelby Valley

The Jenkins Cavaliers, under new coach Matthew Chandler, open their season on the road at Shelby Valley on August 18. The Cavs were 1-10 last season.

Chandler, who was an assistant coach at Letcher County Central last season, has only four seniors on his small squad of 20 players and will not be playing for a district title this season. The KHSAA permits schools to opt out of regular district play in order to schedule opponents who are also dealing with similar circumstances of low numbers.

The Cavaliers will host Twin Valley, Virginia, in their second game of the season on August 25.
