The Miners had a special senior night prior to Thursday’s win over North Putnam where Linton won 54-38. The victory marks the 20th win on the year as No. 6 Linton will take a 20-4 record into sectionals. Linton will play South Knox Tuesday in the Eastern Greene sectional. Thursday was the final game for seniors Lincoln Hale, Trey Goodman, Konner Cox, and Josh Pyne. “Really special class,” Linton coach Joey Hart said. “With everything they’ve endured the last two years especially. When they were sophomores going on a magical run to the state finals and who would have ever dreamed that we would get our chance to repeat to the state finals stopped by COVID last year. Been a heck of a year and a heck of a season.” Hale is now in the top 42 all-time scorers in state history with his 19 points tonight. Linton stats.
