Erin Boley, or at least a painting of her, stared out at her grandparents Saturday afternoon.
“I have so many good memories seeing her in that E’town 21 uniform,” Carol Boley said.
Boley’s visage is painted on a wall inside the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame, which held its grand opening this weekend. She inducted into the hall of fame Saturday night. Before the ceremony, Jim and Carol Boley toured the new hall of fame during an open house.
It officially will open to the public Aug. 12.
This year’s class marks the 100th year of high school basketball in Kentucky, and the 100th member was inducted this weekend. Boley at 19 is the youngest person to enter the hall of fame since it started in 2012.
“100 years, 100 players, for her to be up there is incredible,” Jim said.
For Jim, looking at the wall of hall of fame inductees was a trip down memory lane.
