After a four-year absence, Trigg County will return to the All-A Classic in 2010-11.
The basketball coaches learned of their All-A Tournament matchups at a meeting last week. Trigg County's boys will host Livingston Central Jan. 18, 2011 in the first round. They will play the winner of Crittenden County and Lyon County in an upper bracket that matches this past year's district tournament.
Dawson Springs hosts Caldwell County in the bottom bracket wih University Heights getting a first round bye.
The semifinals will be Jan. 21, 2011 at Crittenden County High School with the championship game the following night.
For the ladies, Trigg County will play at Lyon County on Jan. 17, 2011. They will play the winner of Dawson Springs and Caldwell County.
The lower bracket has Crittenden County at University Heights with Livingston Central getting a first round bye.
The semifinals will be Jan. 20, 2011.
Trigg's boys have played in the All-A championship four times, winning a title in 1997. The girls have advanced to the finals once.
Trigg County replaces Fort Campbell in the All-A. Fort Campbell's enrollment exceeded the guidelines set forth by the All-A Classic.
The inclusion in the All-A Tournament also includes soccer, golf, volleyball, baseball, and softball, with those pairings to be announced later.
While Trigg's enrollment isn't declining, the consolidation of several smaller schools around the state have dropped Trigg into the bottom 125, which sets the All-A eligibility. With Heath and Reidland getting consolidated into the new McCracken County High School, Trigg may stay in the All-A for a while.
However, the future fate of Fort Campbell in the All-A Classic isn't known with student growth on post growing.
