Wildcats News · Bathletics Attends University of Kentucky Basketball Media Day


Members of the Bathletics Club attended the University Of Kentucky Basketball Media Day on Tuesday October 1st at Memorial Coliseum and the Joe Craft Center.

Bath County High School had the only credentialed high school students at UK Media Day.

Senior’s Brooks Williams, Evan Lyons, Rhianna Carpenter and Kennedy Thomas attended the media luncheon on the concourse of Memorial Coliseum, Coach John Calipari’s Press Conference in the Coliseum’s Media Room and the Kentucky Basketball player interviews in the Craft Center.

Each student had to be approved by the UK Media Office and UK Compliance to attend the kickoff to the upcoming basketball season.

All four students took turns filming players as they were interviewed by the credentialed media.

The Bathletics Club members work with the Athletics Directors at KHSAA events to help with game management and other activities that will give them experience for a possible future in a sports-related field.

The Bathletics members also got a chance to interview Kentucky Basketball walk-on Brennan Canada.

Canada, who played at GRC, opened his season last year at Bath County High School playing the Wildcats.
