The 2017 iteration of the Fleming County Academic Tournament is approved for January 7, 2017 at Fleming County High School in Kentucky. Most details will remain about the same as the last few years. Pool play will lead to seeded pools to rank the field. We will have varsity and "B" divisions, and plan to use HSAPQ questions modified to a hybrid Governor's Cup format. Every team will get a minimum of 6 games and we do request schools bring a working buzzer and a reader or scorer. More details to follow in the fall, but the hope is that we can build on the 30 teams (10 nationally ranked) that we had this past year.
