If it’s one thing Kentucky is well-known for, it’s basketball.  That’s why the Frankfort Convention Center is the perfect venue to host the Kentucky All “A” Classic Basketball Tournament which begins today at 8:30 am.  The best of the best in high school girls’ and boys’ basketball from around the state will be competing in Frankfort from today through January 31st.

This tournament for girls and boys who attend small high schools in Kentucky is a great opportunity to enjoy some excellent athletic competition in our community. More importantly, the money raised from ticket sales from the tournament provides funding for scholarships for students from these small schools.

16 boys’ and 16 girls’ regional basketball champs will battle it out for All “A” state titles. The girls’ tournament begins January 27th, and the boys’ tournament January 28th. Both state championship games are scheduled for Sunday, January 31st.

In-game cheerleading competitions will take place during the first rounds of boys’ and girls’ basketball play.

This year, the Frankfort High School Lady Panthers will represent the 11th District in the tournament.  The Lady Panthers take to the court at 1:00 pm today in the opening round.  Frankfort High earned the right to compete in the tournament by taking defeating Lexington’s Sayre School 71 – 46 in the District Tournament this past Monday. Come on out at 1 pm today to support Frankfort as a community!!!
