Michaela Hunter of Rockcastle County was one of two coverage area seniors selected to play in this year's Kentucky-Indiana all-star series.
Although Hunter made the team, she wasn't included on the list of those players invited. But she was still able to attend tryouts, and thanks to her head coach, Chrysti Noble, making a phone call, Hunter is now able to play in the annual event.
"I just called Mr. Chris and just asked him you know about it. And he said, I just can't believe that she is not on here. I said do you think, somebody, that she was just left off? And he goes, I don't know, but I am going to see what I can do for you, and I'll let you know as soon as I can find out", said Noble. "So then we waited and I didn't even tell her that I had called anybody. And I didn't even really say anything until we got it. And then when I knew she was going to get it, I said I'm almost sure that you are going to get an invite."
"Well when Coach Noble messaged me and told me that I was going, but I wasn't on the list, it kind of hurt my feelings", said Hunter. "I felt like people really didn't know who I was. But I know her, and that she would take care of me and push for me to get to go and try to do something she thought I really could achieve. Getting to play on that team."
Lawrence County guard Taylor Porter was the other female from the WYMT coverage area selected for the game.
The game will be played on June 14th over at Freedom Hall in Louisville.
