KY Milesplit Madness: Hopkinsville vs Fern Creek

Two of the most talented yet under the radar teams go into battle in the sweet sixteen! Hopkinsville took down the #9 seed North Oldham in the first round while Fern Creek put on a clinic against Grayson County. 

Today, Hopkinsville's sprinting duo of Xavier Bussell and JeVon Leavell will go up against Fern Creek's Vasean Green as a talented sprinter, yet the top returner in the entire state in the 110 and 300m Hurdles. They'll also bring a young state level distance runner to the table with Jimmy Mullarkey for Fern Creek and Chase Atkins for Hopkinsville.
