State College Basketball

* Preston Spradlin, who spent the majority of the 2016-17 season as interim head coach and just concluded his third season with the program, has been named the 14th head men's basketball coach at Morehead State Univ. Spradlin officially took on the interim head coaching position on Dec. 15, 2016, nine games into the season after the Eagles opened with a 2-7 record. He then guided Morehead State to a 12-9 record the rest of the way and a 10-6 mark in OVC play, which ranked second in the league. At the conclusion of the season, he finished second to Belmont's Rick Byrd in OVC Coach of the Year voting. Spradlin is a native of Pikeville and a 2005 graduate of Betsy Layne High School. He earned a bachelor's degree in history from Alice Lloyd College in 2009 and master's degree in kinesiology and health promotion, with a sports leadership emphasis, from Kentucky in 2011. He was a four-year men's basketball letter-winner for the NAIA Eagles from 2005-09.


Racing

201 Speedway Officials and Staff regret to announce that all scheduled events for the 2017 season have been suspended. Due to the recent circumstances beyond our control owner Jarrod Breeding and Staff have come to a hard decision to close the gates on the 2017 season. We know this announcement is not what the racing community wanted or needed to hear during a time when racing in the region has been on a downward spiral with the closing of several area tracks. Breeding and his Staff would like to sincerely thank all of 201 Fans, Car Owners, Drivers, Sponsors, and anyone who has been part of the 201 Family for their support over the past seasons. Breeding also says that 201 Speedway will be back to racing in the future and promises that when returning to racing the track will be better than ever with improvements made during this temporary setback. We ask for your prayers and understanding during this difficult time and hope to be back on the racing scene soon.
