Castle Named as one of State's Top Juniors || Guard Cracks Prestigious List by Courier-Journal
 Jamie Castle averaged 16 points per game last season and was named as the 15th Region Player of the Year and the Most Valuable Player of the 15th Region Tournament.

She likely played her way on to the list in Bowling Green last March when the Lady Hornets quickly became the tournament darlings. Playing in the wake of devastating tornadoes which ravaged most of Salyersville, teams and fans from across the state knew about Magoffin County.

Castle left a lasting impression. She scored 24 points in an opening-round win over Ashland Paul Blazer, 63-59, the school’s first-ever Sweet Sixteen win.

During the quarterfinals, Castle played much of the second half with an injured knee and finished with 18 points in a 72-59 loss to Lincoln County. She was selected to the all-tournament team.

Jamie was selected 13th in her class. LaRue County’s Ivy Brown is at the top of the class, according to Demling. Stanford has recently been added to her recruiting mix.

In the 2013 class, Lawrence County’s Taylor Brown was named as a player to watch as well.

On the boys’ side, Johnson Central’s Shane Hall is ranked second as Demling describes him as an “athletic freak, still raw but can only get better.” Hall will be a junior this year.
