Does size matter in the 8th Region?

Recommended Posts

Here's a list of 8th Region schools ranked by '17-'18 male enrollment with region championships since 2000 in parentheses:

 

Simon Kenton - 958

Oldham County - 844 (7)

South Oldham - 680 (3)

Collins - 639 (2)

Anderson County - 544 (1)

Grant County - 565

North Oldham - 519

Shelby County - 525 (3)

Spencer County - 470

Henry County - 367

Owen County - 282

Walton-Verona - 270

Carroll County - 260

Gallatin County - 264

Trimble County - 188

Eminence - 115

Williamsontown - 107

 

*I believe Collins is only 9 years old. Shelby County's last region championship was in 2010, the year before the split.

 

*During that time period, Scott County won the region twice and Bullitt East won it once.

The last small school to win was Carroll County in 1972. Carroll was runners-up in 1971, 75, 88, and 89. They beat Oldham County in the 31st District Final in 88 and 89, but the Colonels turned the tables in the Regional championship.

The only other small schools to make it to the finals since then were Owen County in 1996 and Gallatin County in 2008.

IMO, the number of titles answers your question.

Seems to work for everyone but Simon Kenton. It's strange that the largest school in the region has never won it in the last 13 or 14 years.

Oh I know I was talking just on the 8th region.

 

I know. As long they are shooting good they can't be beat. When the 3s don't drop they lose.

I completely disagree, SK loses when they get intimidated by the other team. They get real hesitant with their cuts and nobody seems to want the ball.

You can say that about any team...
