Re: Kentucky 09-10

I'm not sure about doing it on the night before the Dunbar tournament. This would be kind of inconvenient for us and Manual (maybe), because we don't really need to stay overnight for a tournament that is two hours away. The Saturday of state sounds like a good idea. Hopefully it could be later on i...

Re: Kentucky 09-10

Looks like KAAC isn't going to send a team to the HSAPQ All Star tournament. Therefore, we (the students/coaches) can make a team ourselves and send in a bid as Team Kentucky, but we'll have to act fast as the deadline is March 17th. Any ideas?
