While there were a few scattered states that held their high school state championship events in prior weeks, last weekend was the unofficial start to the championship season. A handful of schools, mostly in the south, held their most prestigious tournaments of the season; one of them was Kentucky.
Quick name all of the states with a one-class individual state tournament…California..of course, New Jersey…no doubt, Indiana…sure. One you may have forgotten is Kentucky. The Bluegrass State is a welcome change after we examined the seven-class Georgia state tournament earlier today. Kentucky is a state that still needs some work to even get up to the level of a Georgia or Florida, but there is still plenty of talent. In looking at Kentucky, the first thing you notice is the incredible tournament that perennial power Union County put together. We’ll get more into Union County’s record-setting performance and all of the interesting happenings at the 2020 Kentucky State championships below.
