The Knights and Lady Knights travel to tournaments over the weekend, facing a bevy of opponents.
Both teams started their week against Green County in a double header at the Roby Dome. Results were not known at press time but can be found at www.lebanonenterprise.com.
The Knights travel to West Jessamine High School for the Jessamine County Invitational that tips off on Thursday night. The boys won't begin play until Friday at 8 p.m., when they face Frankfort High School.
"Haven't seen them, except in a scrimmage and I think they were missing some players," Head Coach Tim Peterson said. "I think we can compete with them at the same level. This is a type of tournament we can compete in. All teams are about .500 (even win-loss records). Every game should be competitive."
Frankfort is 2-3, with wins over Berea (1-5) and Sayre (1-4). They've lost to Glasgow (4-0), Woodford County (2-2) and Western Hills (4-1).
They average 47 points per game and allow 57 points per game.
Marion County averages 64 points per game and gives up 68 points per game.
Other teams slated to play in the Jessamine County Invitational are West Jessamine (2-2), Garrard County (4-1), Grant County (5-0), Woodford County (2-2), Pineville (5-1) and East Jessamine (4-1).
The Lady Knights are headed to a tournament nearby at Danville High School for the Lady Admirals Tournament.
They open tournament play on Friday night at 6 p.m. against Mercer County (3-1). Lady Knights Head Coach Trent Milby said that he's heard Mercer plays hard but doesn't have the talent they used to have.
Mercer's lone loss this season came against Wayne County (3-2). Mercer averages 57 points per game and gives up 44 per game.
Saturday at 2 p.m. the Lady Knights take on Tates Creek (0-4), a team that Milby hasn't seen or heard much about.
Tates Creek averages 52 points per game and allows 60 per game. Their first two losses were by three points each, to Franklin County (3-1) and Bryan Station (4-2).
Sunday at 3 p.m. the Lady Knights play South Floyd (1-1).
South Floyd is averaging 46 points per game and giving up 57 points. They were blown out by Shelby Valley (3-1) at home.
On Monday at 6 p.m. the Lady Knights wrap up the tournament with host Danville (2-1).
"Just by looking at scores, Danville's got a nice team plus it's over there," Milby said. "I don't know much about the other two (teams). We'll get to watch them Friday after we play."
Danville is averaging 61 points per game and allowing 52 points per game. Their lone loss came against Casey County (3-1).
