Carr Creek’s march to state tourney



The March 22, 1928 edition of The Mountain Eagle praises the Carr Creek High School basketball team for the good publicity the Kentucky mountains received as a result of the team’s remarkable march to the final game of the Kentucky State Tournament in Lexington before falling to Ashland High School, 13 to 11, in four overtimes. The photo above belonged to former University of Kentucky Sports Information Director Russell Rice and appears courtesy of the University of Kentucky Digital Library. Rice began his career as sports editor for The Mountain Eagle.
