Kingsport’s largest sports event promises to draw 4,000 visitors  

 

KINGSPORT, Tenn. — The 2006 AAU Girls’ Basketball 12 & Under National Champion will be decided in Kingsport, Tennessee this summer.  The Kingsport Convention and Visitors Bureau (KCVB) is hosting the National Championship June 30 – July 8.  The event sponsored by First Tennessee Bank will feature 84 teams of the country’s finest 12 & under girls’ basketball players.  

 

“This competition will bring in the most talented 12 year old girl basketball players in the country,” said Frank Lett, Director of Sports Marketing.  “We are excited about the amount of visitors this event will bring to the area, as well as the economic impact it will have on the region.”

 

The National Championship promises to bring more than 4,000 visitors from across the country to Kingsport.  Dobyns-Bennett, Sullivan North, Tennessee High, Virginia High, Sullivan South, Daniel Boone, Sullivan East High Schools and John Sevier and Ross Robinson Middle Schools are expected to fill with 1,000 competitors, 300 coaches, and their family, friends and fans beginning June 30.

 

The competition will work as follows:  Teams will begin with pool play.  The top two teams in each pool will advance to the double-elimination bracket of the Championship.  All who do not qualify for the Championship bracket will go directly into a modified double-elimination bracket.  The games will be played in 16 minute halves with a 10 minute half-time intermission.  Forty-one of the 12 & under girls this year are over 6 feet and three of them are 6 foot 3 inches.

 

This event is the third and the largest of a record six sports events the KCVB is hosting in 2006.  The AAU Girls’ Basketball 12 & Under National Championship is projected to have an economic impact of more than 4 million dollars on Kingsport.  All proceeds from the tournaments will be returned to the host schools and their athletic programs.  Since 1989, the tournaments have returned more than $700,000 to area schools. 

 

Teams will begin registering on June 30, 10 a.m., at Dobyns-Bennett High School.  Each team will have a one hour practice at their time designed sites. For updated results during the championship visit http://www.aaugirlsbasketball.org/pages/results/2006/12U.html.

 

Opening Ceremonies will take place at Dobyns-Bennett High School, June 30, 7 p.m.  

 

Tickets can be purchased for $8 a day or $35 for the entire week.  Children’s tickets are $5 for a day or $15 for the week.  Children under five are admitted free and parking is complimentary.  Tickets can be picked up at the door or by calling the KCVB at 423-392-8820.

 

The KCVB is a partnership between the Kingsport Area Chamber of Commerce and the city of Kingsport.  Its mission is “to market the city and provide services to meeting and convention planners, tour operators, athletic event planners and business and leisure travelers by serving as a tourist development program of the Kingsport Chamber in partnership with the city of Kingsport.”  For more KCVB news, visit www.kcvb.org.

Dobyns-Bennett Spanish Students Score High On National Exam

 

KINGSPORT -- Dobyns-Bennett High School students fared well in this spring’s National Spanish Examination, the first ever held online.

 

Dobyns-Bennett High School Spanish teacher Ken Oster said more Tennessee students than ever completed the national comprehensive examination, which is divided in four skill levels.

 

Out of 1,519 students in the state who took the Level 2 exam, Dobyns-Bennett High School student Alice Xiang placed first and received a book and a special certificate of recognition for her accomplishment from the secretary of the Tennessee Chapter of the American Association of the Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.

 

In Level 1, Sarah Gibson placed 16th out of 1,378 Tennessee students. Out of 1,055 Tennessee students who competed in Level 3, Sam Floyd placed sixth. Six Dobyns-Bennett students placed in the top 20 out of 482 students who completed the Level 4 exam. Vincent Guidi-Louviere and Michael Platzer tied at 20th, Anna Baugh was 18th, John Bouchillon was 11th, and Sean Maginnis was 6th. Kyle Mallinak placed 2nd in the state and 9th in the entire nation. He also earned special recognition from the state secretary.

 

In the Outside Experience categories, Bruno Giampietro placed 4th and Alex Manole placed 3rd in Level 4 in Tennessee.  In Bilingual categories Fernando Arpio placed 3rd in Level 3. In Level 4 Xavier Collazo was 8th; Lourdes Ramírez was 7th, and Juliana Rengifo was 3rd. 

 

Dobyns-Bennett students won 35 certificates of merit, including 13 awards in Level 1, awarded to individuals who score at the 75th percentile or higher according to all the scores in the United States.

 

For more information on the National Spanish Examination, contact Ken Oster at (423)764-0596.

Kingsport is located on the Tennessee-Virginia border at the crossroads of I-81 and I-26 near the geographic center of the Eastern U.S. This city of 50,000 in a metro of 308,000, was planned by renowned American planner John Nolen in his office at Harvard Square. Located in the lush green foothills of the Tennessee Valley, it is surrounded by the Southern Highlands and mountain lakes. Kingsport is home to Marriott’s www.MeadowViewResort.com and thousands of acres of unique, natural amenities at Bays Mountain and Warriors Path Parks. The natural geography provides a temperate, well-balanced climate with four seasons and a natural shelter from extreme weather. Population growth has also been well-balanced, ensuring you will not outgrow your decision to relocate. With no personal property taxes, special assessments, or state income taxes on salaries/wages, you’ll find that Kingsport has a very low cost of living coupled with an exceptionally high quality of life (see for yourself at www.BestPlaces.net). The regional airport (TRI) has direct flights to Atlanta, Charlotte, Orlando and St. Pete/Clearwater with easy access, parking, and virtually no security lines. The public education system was planned by Columbia University and Newsweek has repeatedly recognized the local high school as one of the best in America. Year in and year out our graduates go on to the top colleges and universities (and without costly private school tuition fees). Harvard also recognized Kingsport in 2009 with the Innovations in American Government Award for its higher education initiative. What are you waiting for? It’s time to leave the high costs, traffic jams, and stress behind and discover this hidden gem.
