HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - We have an update concerning a game at the 36th Annual WYMT Food City Mountain Basketball Classic presented by your local Kentucky Farm Bureau agents and sponsored by ARH.

During Thursday night’s fifth place girls game between Perry Central Lady Commodores and the Knott Central Lady Patriots, a Perry Central player collapsed on the floor and had to leave John C. Combs Arena in an ambulance.

Her condition was not known at the time she left, however, we are told she was active and talking when she made it to the hospital. The thoughts and prayers of everyone at WYMT remain with this young lady, her family and her teammates.

Both teams agreed to suspend play of the fifth place game and not resume.
