Girls’ high school basketball teams from the 15th, 14th and 13th Regions will compete in the WYMT Mountain Classic later in the year. The tournament will feature six girls’ high school basketball squads.

Currently sidelined via the coronavirus in the offseason, Floyd Central is slated to start preseason practice in mid-October.
