LONDON - Four area players - Lincoln County's Jonathan True and Chris Hart, Danville's Chad Bartleson and Boyle County's Blake Jones - have been named to the 12th Region Coaches Association All-Region team.
Eleven area players were also named to the region all-academic team, including Jones and Hart.
Players, coaches and special contributors who were named to the 12th Region Hall of Fame were also honored again during the awards banquet here.
Lincoln County representatives did not attend the banquet after a miscommunication with association president Roscoe Denney, an assistant coach at South Laurel.
"I want to issue a deep and sincere apology to Lincoln County schools, their basketball coaching staff, players, administration and especially parents," Denney said. "They did not receive the e-mail notifying them of the banquet. For that, I accept full responsibility and blame."
