2013 KBA State 6th Grade Champions 

Coach Jimmy Hendrickson’s sixth grade Redhounds defeated Lebanon-Marion County, 52-47 Sunday to win the 2013 KBA State Championship in Lexington. Corbin started as one of 58 teams and battled their way to the state championship game, winning six games in three days.

Corbin opened the tournament, routing Eastside, 42-5 Friday night. Saturday they turned back Emmalena of Knott County, 48-43 to win their pool. They followed that with a 51-28 win over Pulaski Southern then beat Elliott County 51-39.
