The Letcher Central Cougars take a surprising 8-4 record into the new year after winning three of six games during the past two weeks in holiday invitational tournaments at Leslie County and down in Orlando, Fla.
The Cougars host 3-11 South Floyd tomorrow night, January 8, and 3-7 Jenkins the following night, January 9. LCCHS travels to Prestonsburg Saturday evening to play the 4-6 Blackcats.
Then things get interesting for the Cougars as they travel to Knott County to take on possibly one of the top teams ever seen in this part of the state. The 12-1 Patriots, with several Division I prospects, are led by Vanderbilt signee, Cameron Justice, and Evan Hall.
