    No shit, that's awesome. I know exactly where that's at and grew up not far from there.

    Somerset, Danville,Campbellsville area here, but I've been to Salyersville a lot.

    We used to go up there 3-4 times a year to see my grandparents when I was a kid. They lived half a mile from downtown, so I would take my basketball to the park (swinging bridge) and shoot hoops. I loved going in the summer when they had “Founders Day”. Thought it was pretty cool when the town recognized families. I have two cousins that own two hardware stores there. Haven’t been there in years, but I’m hoping I can make it back up there in the near future.

    No I'm from a town of 1800 with school enrollment of 120. We never won any titles. But at one point we were the state record holder for football playoff appearances without a win. I think we were 0-9 when our football program ended a decade ago.

    I went to Dowling Catholic. It's fair to say we have some titles.:D

    Close to there, and have family in Salyersville as well.

    Interesting place... Almost dated a girl from there once, dodged a bullet on that one.

    4 state cross country championships, single class, and 5 or 6 runners-up (I was on 2 runners-up teams). Many sports have won state championships.

    My tiny ass HS (graduated with a class of 87 ppl) didn’t even have a swim team, I’m bitter about that, bc I never lost a race at the American legion pool lol.

    Edit: sorry I thought I quoted dude talking about his swimming records. And I’m not saying I coulda been Michael Phelps by any means, just wish we woulda had a team so I could have been the best player on the team for once in my lifetime

    Home of ...well...nobody

    The HS Basketball team did have an undefeated season winning smallest class 1A
    Ironically the next year it went winless. So we also have that record that can never be beaten.

    I think my hometown has some wrestling and field hockey state titles (there might be a bowling title too lol). Not sure of the classes at the times of the titles, and they fluctuate based on sport. Using football as the standard, the school was class B (3rd highest in New York) for the longest time. Moved up to class A for a decade or so including my time there. Back to class B now.

    Small town, but the school district is massive. In square miles, it’s second only to the Adirondack school district which obviously includes mountains where people don’t live.

    My high school never won a state title in anything, but it has produced a couple billionaires (of which I am NOT one).

    I don’t know if it will result in a state title but I saw a post on Facebook about how my high school’s boy’s basketball team is undefeated this season.
