The Kentucky 2A Championships is pleased to announce a partnership with the Owensboro Daviess County Convention and Visitors Bureau to host the Kentucky 2A Championship events. This agreement will extend through June 30, 2021, encompassing three basketball state championships, two baseball state championships, two softball state championships, one volleyball state championship and one boys and girls soccer state championship.
The official kickoff will be January 2019 with the boys’ and girls’ basketball state championship at the Owensboro Sportscenter. The Sportscenter is a 5,000 seat arena in the heart of Owensboro and home to the Kentucky Wesleyan College Panthers. The 2020-21 school year will bring the addition of the baseball and softball state championships; volleyball, boys soccer and girls soccer will follow in the 2021-22 school year. The selected facilities for all events other than basketball will be released prior to the inaugural basketball state championship in January 2019.
In all sports, the state will be divided into four sections, with the sectional winner and runner-up advancing to the state championship. Each section will include four KHSAA regions. Section I is comprised of regions 1-4, Section II is Regions 5-8, Section III is Regions 9-12, and Section IV is Regions 13-16.
“We are excited about these developments and looking forward to a tremendous partnership with Owensboro and Daviess County”, said Kentucky 2A Championships Chairman Jeremy Tackett. “This agreement will give the schools in the Kentucky 2A Championships an opportunity to play in terrific facilities, with fantastic atmospheres, while keeping the expenses minimal to the participating schools.”
