BGHS to Receive Three Years of Enhanced Monitoring following KHSAA Meeting

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Bowling Green High School and KHSAA have reached an agreement relating to the school’s 2017 state championship.

The new agreement will not vacate the 2017 sweet 16 title, but the school will now have to deal with enhanced monitoring over the next three years.

This monitoring will be paid for by Bowling Green High School.

We reached out to BGHS and received a statement from the Superintendent of Schools Gary Fields.

“We are glad to resolve this issue from the 2016-2017 school year. Other than an inadvertent violation of a residency issue based on a rules interpretation, there were no players deemed ineligible and as important no boys basketball coaches or high school administrators found to have done anything wrong during that season or at any other time. We have committed to work with the KHSAA to create a model system for our district and others to accurately track resident and non-resident enrollment for student-athletes.”
