  • Jenkins makes all region team, Hinkel snubbed

    The 8th Region Basketball Coaches Association released it’s all-region team last week and there was at least one surprise on that team. Or I should say not on that team.

    While Eminence High School’s Kemryn Jenkins deservedly made the team, Henry County’s Zach Hinkel did not.

    Jenkins was the region’s leading scorer at 27.4 points per game in the regular season. He shot 63.5 percent from the field and 48.8 percent from behind the 3-point arc. Those are staggering numbers for any player at any level and against any competition.
