    This seems to settle the debate of if these events are state championships or not.

    Sounds to me like the Kentucky 2A Championships organization sure as hell wants to make it sound like they are. What a bunch of slime-balls.

    There is no debate here at BGP. There might be talk, but no debate.

    Happy to see that these folks are really serious about this.
    These folks have their ducks in a row. It is well thought out.

    Curious as to where the financial backing is coming from, since there is no up-front title sponsor.

    Will make regular season scheduling a bit tougher, especially with the more compressed dates/games in our future.

    Good luck to the 2A Classic !

    Outside of Owensboro Catholic, this shouldn't really have an affect on the local teams. As an Owensboro resident this seems like a win for the city. We need you guys to come help us pay for those fancy water fountains down on the river.

    Why does it matter what it is called? I don't understand why people would even care of what it is called. It will be a great tournament. Whether they call it a Championship or Tournament or Classic or Event or etc. It doesn't matter.

    I've enjoyed some good times in Owensboro. We (Brossart) came down for a Holiday tournament hosted by OboroCath back in 2000, stayed at the Executive Inn, played at the Sportscenter, and had an overall wonderful experience.

    Used to have some fine country music acts perform there as well.

    Have they ever re-built/replaced the Executive Inn???

    I like the idea of a 2A Classic. I don’t like it being pushed as the 2A State Championship.

    Not with anything equivalent. The area where the Executive Inn was formely located now has a new convention center. To it's west side is a new 5-story Holiday Inn, and to it's east side is a new 7-story Hampton Inn, which IMO is quite a bit nicer than most Hampton Inn's. I would guess however, the both hotels combined do not offer as many guest rooms as were once available at the Executive Inn.
