The 8th District in 1975

And to wrap up our coverage of the 1975 district tournaments, here are the results from the 8th District, which has long been dominated by the Hoptown schools:

Christian Co. 101, Ft. Campbell 44
Hopkinsville 62, Todd Co. Cent. 55
Christian Co. 64, Hopkinsville 52

Two years after this tournament, University Heights opened, and U-Heights has been a thorn in the side of Christian County and Hopkinsville ever since.

Prior to the 1967-68 school year, Hopkinsville had a historically African-American high school known as Hopkinsville Crispus Attucks.

Prior to the 1964-65 school year, Todd County had a historically African-American high school known as Todd County Training.

Prior to the 1963-64 school year, Todd County Central was formed from a merger of Todd County High, Clifty, and Guthrie.

Fort Campbell High School came into existence in the 1962-63 school year.

Christian County High School opened in the fall of 1959 after a merger of the Crofton Cougars, the Lacy Wildcats, the Pembroke Owls, the Sinking Fork Panthers, and the South Christian Green Dragons. (South Christian had been formed in the fall of 1941 from a merger of Howell and LaFayette High Schools).
