GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

WK&T Sports production director Chris Adams and media executive Justin Swallows present a $6,000 check to Graves County High School head basketball coach Josh Frick and athletic director Khristain Elliott.

Swallows explained,

“We’re sponsoring the Christmas Classic at Graves County High School Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 21-22," Swallows said. "There’ll be several basketball teams from Kentucky’s First Region, as well as west Tennessee. As sponsors, we’ll pay for all expenses, so that all ticket proceeds go directly to the basketball program over that two-day period."

Frick noted, “This event allows our guys to stay home for more games in front of our fans. We’ve been doing this event for many years now without a sponsor. My assistant coaches suggested involving WK&T and they were all on-board. With their support, we’re going to take this from being a good event to an outstanding event.”
