Athletic Director Tony Uggen said of the visit, “State Representative Kevin Mahan has been encouraging Governor Holcomb to attend for some time, but the governor couldn’t fit a visit here into his schedule. Tuesday night finally worked for the governor who is a huge basketball fan. We are excited to have Governor Holcomb in attendance and hope to make his visit an enjoyable one which is our goal for everyone who visits. Kevin said there has been quite the buzz about what is going on here, so the governor will get to see first hand what is going on here. My hope is that he returns to Indianapolis to share how our student-athletes have impacted our county in a positive manner.”
He concluded, “He will likely speak to the team before the game and then just enjoy the game. I appreciate Kevin’s efforts in encouraging the governor to attend. I hope he has a chance to sit back and just enjoy a great experience.”
The JV game tips off at 6pm. The varsity game will follow.
