    Always wished Brossart made the cut to the 'regional' tourney that allows 8th region Simon Kenton and Walton get invited to play in.
    the 2010-11 team had a 26-1 record with the only loss being to Simon Kenton in a game where a couple of players were not 100%.
    Only 2 of their games that year were within 10 points and 2 frosh played up never seeing a freshman uniform.
    They won the Holy Cross tourney, district, NKAC and 10th region championships that year.

    They used to be allowed in. Up until the mid-70s (ish) it had every NKY freshman team competing, plus a few middle schools that were allowed to field 8th grade teams for the tournament. As I understand it, the locations jumped around in early years because it was SUCH a pain to orchestrate everything around winter weather and the varsity/jv schedules, and no one would wrangle the project for more than a year or two at most. Then Cov Cath started hosting it annually, and Jack Kaelin headed up the effort. After a lot of complaining, the decision was made for the smaller schools to start having their own tournament. Cov Cath has operated on the same general cast of characters since the mid-70s.

    So I've got to ask a question I posed a couple of years ago, when Holy Cross won it in 2016, they had two players score over 80 points in the tournament (Spencer Macke 89 and Ty Houston 83) and it was my theory that that must be one of the very few times, and maybe the only time that ever happened ... I figured 6 minute quarters, most kids capable of scoring 20+ PPG would have been playing up, pretty unlikely to have 2 on the same team ...

    I haven’t seen anything for 1976, but I think my Bellevue Tigers got beat in the finals. I grabbed my year book and it has us with a 16-0 regular season record, Class ‘A’ champs in the NKAC and regional runners-up.

    This would have been the 2005 year. 2004 year would have been the team with Bovard, B. Schult, T. Jacobs (I believe he played JV though). Not sure who won the freshman tourney that year though.
