The Eagles were guided to the state tournament by Head Coach Paul Decker and assistant coaches Alex C. Embry, William Garner, Sr., and Robert Russell.

“I was honored to file a resolution honoring the 2013 Ohio County Eagles for their accomplishments, dedication and hard work,” said Senator Rhoads, D-Madisonville. “I am proud of these fine student athletes for representing Ohio County and Western Kentucky at the Sweet Sixteen Tournament.”

Senator Rhoads represents the 6th senatorial district, which includes Hopkins, Muhlenberg and Ohio counties
