King of the Bluegrass field announced


Recommended Posts

Because of our loyalty to the Courier-Journal over the years I have allowed Jason Frakes to release the field. The C-J has given us great coverage for 27 years and we feel like we owe it to them.

You can go to http://www.courier-journal.com and click on sports for Jason Frakes blog... or read it in the paper tomorrow.

more info to follow tomorrow.

Scott County probably thinks the competition isn't good enough for them!

 

It is a week earlier this year for the boys. Last year, it was between Christmas and new years. Scott County usually takes a national trip somewhere the week before, so maybe that is why they actually aren't in it.

 

Would like to see Jon Hood again next season. Lexinton Catholic should be good also, and Anderson.

I think you'll see Jon Hood playing for the Junior All Stars against the Kentucky All Stars this June

Very strong field and looks to be an exciting tournament. For some reason Elliott Co. is not wanting to play a top notch schedule. They agreed to play in King of the Bluegrass and Farm Bureau Classic and later declined after accepting invitation. They could have had some very good competition in both events. Instead, they play a lot in their region against lesser competition.

Travel might be an issue. Expensive gas (and getting more pricey) for long trips from Elliott County.

Expense is not the reason for these two events. They pay good money to get you to these two. Maybe they will win it all and then say you don't have to play a very tough schedule to win it all.

Last year Scott Co. went to the City of Palms tournament before Christmas and the Beach Ball tournament after Christmas. Those are 2 of the best tournaments in the country. Both tourneys are loaded with talent. Its hard to turn down going to those places. Mason Co. also goes out of state a lot as well, going to Hawaii last year.

I'm told that Scott County has been a regular invitee to the LIT and King of the Bluegrass over the years, but that the offers are rarely accepted.

 

Just a trivia question....When is the last time a winner of the LIT has won a state championship? What about the King of the Bluegrass?

I know the Mason County school board approved a trip to florida this coming year just recently for a christmas tourney.
