Nelson County High hosts first tourneys

A real treat is coming up here for area sports fans the next few weeks.

For years local basketball fans have been crammed and stuffed into smaller gyms here to watch district tournament games —if the game was enjoyable, the stuffiness of the place was not.

The treat—Things will be different this year. No crowded doorways, no smoke-filled hallways and no jamming in the seats. Not only that, the fans will be able to see the regional tournament here as well as the district.

Nelson County High School will host both the 19th District and Fifth Region tournaments in its spacious, comfortable 4,400 seat gym.
