All players on all teams – varsity, JV, freshman and middle school – and cheerleaders will be introduced.
The Hawks and Lady Hawks varsity teams will have an intrasquad scrimmage. Other activities include “Fans in the Stands” competitions and 3-point contest. The first 150 fans will be given a ticket from the booster club for a chance to win several door prizes during the evening.
There is no charge to attend Blue & White Night activities.
“We just want to kickoff the season by spotlighting our student-athletes to our community,” said Paul Childress, head boys basketball coach. “The kids have been working hard getting ready for the season and we want to try and generate some excitement about the upcoming basketball season. It's that time of year for Kentucky basketball. We want to encourage everyone in the community to come out Saturday night, get a bowl of chili, and come support our hard working student-athletes.”
