12 September 9, 2009 Your Hometown Newspaper Bath County News-Outlook Photo by Ron Weaver Kicker Taylor Staton (1) makes the tackle on a kick return by Lewis. 12 home games The Bath County High School boys' basketball program has finalized and released its schedule for the 2009-10 season. Bath County will host a dozen home games dur- ing the upcoming cam- paign. "I am excited about the fact that we play 12 home games this season," said Bath County High School boys' basketball coach Jim Hicks. ' VVe have great fans and they give us a huge advantage when we play at home. It fills my heart, with joy when I walk into our gym and see a huge sea of red." Hicks has succeeded in his attempt to make the BCHS boys' basketball schedule more challeng- ing. "I made our schedule a lot tougher this season," Hicks commented. "I wanted to challenge our players with a tougher schedule this season. I also believe that if we are going to be one of the top programs in the 16th re- gion then we need to play a tough schedule. I also think it makes the games fun and exciting for our fans." Bath County will be tested early on during the 2009-10 season. In addition to in-state foes, 1801 Main St., Paris, KY Open: Mon.,Sat 9-6 #433 :row #411a Bath County will face ..... ..... more than one out-of- state opponent. '~vVe open the season at home play- ing one of the top teams in the region in Rose Hill," Hicks confided. "We also play South Point, Ohio - one of the top teams in southern Ohio. We also play Norcross, Ga., which will be the number one- ranked team in the state of Georgia. They will also be nationally ranked in the top 20 in the coun- try. We also play other top teams in the region in Ashland, East Carter and defending 16th Re- gion champion Elliott County. I believe that by the time the postseason rolls around that this tough schedule will pay its dividends by prepar- ing our team for another exciting post season run." Bath County finished the 2008-09 season 20-7. The Wildcats compiled the second-best record in the 16th Region in 2008-09 behind champion Elliott County. Bath County fell to Lewis County in the 16th Region Tournament semifinals. Double i {{ ....' = , !37,000 miles snow i~; Quad : One ner, Toyotaquatiw : !
