    You wouldn't think it from her success, but I've heard rumblings for multiple years that she was on the outs. Four region titles in the decade she coached there - precisely zero before that. I imagine they do, but they really had better have a good reason.

    Nine straight years either (or both) the girls' and boys' basketball teams have won a region title for the Purples. Both head coaches are gone now. It's a time of transition for the round ball at Bowling Green.

    Amazing to know what comes out of this and the timing of it before the start of the school year. Also curious to know the ratio of students at BGHS and on the Lady Purples team.

    The KDE report card for this past year isn't available, but for 2015-16:

    White (Not Hispanic) - 57.8%
    African American - 20.4%
    Hispanic - 14.3%
    Asian - 4.1%
    Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander - 0.2%
    Two or More Races - 3.3%

    This is a team photo the year before (2014-15, it was hard to find team photos):
