Over the past few weeks, the KHSAA has worked to resolve questions surrounding the all-time coaching record for Billy Hicks. With the assistance of several news outlets, including the Lexington Herald-Leader, the Louisville Courier-Journal, the Harlan Daily Enterprise and the Georgetown News-Graphic, the KHSAA believes it has resolved many of the discrepancies in regards to coach Hicks’ record.
With that said, the KHSAA records will reflect that coach Hicks enters tonight’s game between Scott County and Paul Laurence Dunbar with an all-time record of 856-244, tying him with William Kean (Central HS) atop the state’s all-time list for coaching victories.
The KHSAA congratulates coach Hicks on his accomplishments thus far, and wishes him the best of luck in the future.
* 10 games forfeited by school
In researching the all-time coaching record for Billy Hicks, the KHSAA has uncovered two articles by the Associated Press from the fall of 1979 confirming that Evarts High School did in fact forfeit all of its games from the 1978-79 season due to the participation of ineligible players. This information was confirmed through the review of Board of Control minutes from that time period. Due to this finding, the KHSAA cannot credit coach Hicks with the 10 wins from the 1978-79 season.
According to KABC records, coach Hicks entered the season with an all-time record of 817-241. The KHSAA has worked alongside coach Hicks to update his records for the 1997-98, 1998-99, 1999-00 and 2001-02 seasons – adding missing wins and losses.
There are still discrepancies for the following seasons in what the KABC records show compared to what coach Hicks’ records show:
1982-83 (Evarts) – KABC [...]

I want to issue a review of items discussed at each of the Board of Control meetings and status of issues.

From the Commissioner:
In this document, I am going to try and summarize, in as concise a means as possible, the changes made to 702 KAR 7:065 which specify regulations for athletics at the middle school level. This first part will be about the regulation itself, and the changes
that will be made due to its passage. An additional document, which will be able to be revised and edited as more questions arise, will explain many of the changes in layman’s terms.
Pursuant to KRS 156.070 (2), the Kentucky Board of Education is responsible for all levels of interscholastic athletics in all grades and has delegated such authority to the KHSAA for many years. For most of that time, the regulations have focused on play
at the high school interscholastic level (grades 9-12). The Kentucky Board of Education has, for a couple of years, been reviewing issues related to participation in middle school interscholastic athletics. [...]
