My Alma Mater Is Going To The Sweet 16

I don't post often about high school sports, because if I post about one team, I'll hear about how I have to post about all of them, and nothing is more fatiguing than trying to please everyone.

But when the school I graduated from, Scott - usually overshadowed by the bigger, older, and more athletically successful schools in Northern Kentucky - does something special, I'll make mention of it. 

The Scott Eagles are headed to the Kentucky Boys Sweet Sixteen State Tournament after winning its first region title since 1989, beating Campbell County at the horn in the 10th Region Championship Game in Maysville, 78-77. The Eagles blew a 20-point first half lead, then had to come back from down five with just over two minutes to go before winning the game, and the championship on this Jake Ohmer three off a missed shot as time expired.

Scott will play at Rupp Arena next Wednesday against Harlan County. Congrats to the Eagles!
