GOODY, Ky. — Jan. 19 will be a historical evening for Belfry High School. The building blocks of the Lady Pirate basketball program will gather on the floor together for the first time in the school’s history.
Past players and coaches from seasons dating back to the 1970s have been invited to the school to be honored by Belfry High and the Pond Creek citizens. So far, at least 35 former gals that represent over 40 years of Lady Pirates will stroll onto the gym floor.
The talent that will be walking through the gym doors is unbelievable. The history that will once again walk onto the court is a testament to the program and the shoulders that each generation since have stood on are still strong and solid.
The Lady Pirates may not all know one another but they are sisters related through the blood, sweat and tears each has given to BHS. They are winners and know what it takes because they have given their all when wearing the red and white.
The event will begin at 5 p.m. with a dinner catered by Starters for these ladies. The first game will be the 2012 Lady Pirates facing the Mingo Central Lady Miners at 6 p.m. The boys will battle Knott County at approximately 8 p.m.
The former Lady Pirates will be honored in between the two games.
If planning to attend, it is recommended to arrive early. A large crowd is expected to attend the games and this historical night.
