Since I'm a sucker for statistics and research, I noticed something when going over the results from the Regional Tournaments. What do Marshall County, Oldham County, Boone County, and Johnson Central all have in common?

 

The first person who answers correctly, I will owe them a drink down at the State Tournament. It's not much, but hey.

Dont have any idea, but I know that Oldham is giving up 45ppg for the year that is #1 in the state. Is it points given up?

North Marshall (which consolidated into Marshall County) won a state title in 1959 and Sharpe (which consolidated into North Marshall) won a state title in 1938). Also Brewers (which consolidated into South Marshall which consolidated into Marshall County) won state in 1948. So Marshall County has 3 state championships under its umbrella legacy. Perhaps other participating schools may have also have had pre-consolidation titles.
