Pikeville proud: Hillard Howard

Default

 

BY MIKE FIELDS

Hillard Howard has been living in Florida the past seven years, but he’s back visiting his old Kentucky home this week for two good reasons.

  • Howard’s beloved Pikeville Panthers made it to the Sweet 16 for the first time in almost 20 years. Jason Booher, Howard’s son-in-law, is athletic director, vice-principal AND assistant basketball coach at Pikeville. Panthers’ first-year head coach Elisha Justice played for Booher at Shelby Valley when it won the 2010 state championship.
  • Howard will be inducted into the Dawhares/KHSAA Hall of Fame on Saturday. He guided Pikeville to three consecutive state football titles (1987-89) and two runner-up finishes (1972, ’79). He also coached Pikeville’s girls to two state basketball tournaments (1979, ’80).
  • Even though Pikeville lost to Perry County Central in their Sweet Sixteen opener Wednesday afternoon, Howard was proud of what the Panthers accomplished this season.

    “It’s amazing, really, for Elisha to come in and get this […]

    BY MIKE FIELDS

    HIGHLAND HEIGHTS  — Mercer County will play Franklin County  in the championship game of the St. Elizabeth Healthcare/KHSAA Girls’ Sweet Sixteen in BB&T Arena Sunday at 2 p.m.

    Mercer County (30-6) earned a spot in the finals for the first time by beating Murray 67-60 in Saturday’s semifinals.

    Franklin County (33-5) advanced to the title game by beating Holmes 51-36 in Saturday’s nightcap. The Flyers have twice been state runners-up, both times to Butler, in 1980 and last year.

    Mercer County Coach Chris Souder said his program has come a long way in recent years. He remembers his Titans getting demolished by Elizabethtown 79-38 in the first round of the Sweet Sixteen in 2015.

    They made a better showing last year, making it to the semifinals before losing to Franklin County 55-51.

    “It’s just incredible the way this program’s evolved over the last several years,” […]

    03/08/2017 – New Procedure Adopted for Monitoring Pitch Count and Maintaining Baseball Stats for Kentucky Schools

    Baseball Blog Updates

    The KHSAA has partnered with MaxPreps to manage and post pitch counts for the 2017 playing season. MaxPreps works in combination with GameChanger, among other stat entry options (, and to allow for member schools to maintain accurate pitch count data and eliminate the paper forms that were used as part of the 2016 season. GameChanger is the most popular on-site mechanism for stats collection used by more than half of the KHSAA member schools and is available at no charge. In addition to GameChanger, KHSAA member schools can utilize MaxPreps own stat entry options or seven other stat partners to maintain accurate pitch count data.

    Schools are required to enter pitch counts following a contest. Each school is required to keep its own pitch count. It is still required to confirm counts between innings including confirming in all postseason contests with the DPCR (Designated Pitch Count Recorder) for the tournament.

    Beginning with the 2017 […]

    12/10/14 – Compiled Uniform Rules and Questions

    Default

    Due to the fact that there is no single resource from which an athletic administrator can become informed about the rules governing uniforms for each of the OHSAA-sponsored sports, this document will summarize both the OHSAA General Sports Regulation on Uniforms as well as the specific regulations found in the playing rules of each sport. The OHSAA hopes that this information will assist athletic administrators and coaches so that costly mistakes are not made when ordering school uniforms. An additional purpose is to assist administrators in reinforcing these rules with coaches in order to prevent penalties for non-compliance. Coaches are responsible, along with student-athletes, for insuring that compliance with uniform rules. The head official shall require coaches to verify prior to each contest that all athletes are legally equipped, in legal uniforms and free of all jewelry.

    The OHSAA General Sports Regulation #17, ?Athletic Uniforms? reads: Uniforms worn by participants in a high school athletic contest […]
