Re: Kentucky 2018-19

Just as an early FYI: Glasgow High School will LIKELY be hosting the 2019 Scottie on Saturday, September 14th this year and the 2nd Saturday of September in the future. There is still a chance that we will keep it during the last weekend of August (except for when on Labor Day weekend like this year).

Will any stats from the KIQBC be posted online?
Maybe..... I plan on enlisting Ramapriya, and he and I will try to come up with a way to format the data in an understandable manner. However,
this will most likely be after Gov Cup State on March 16-18.
