By this time, the AAA archives are pretty bare of state tournament programs. The archives did have a few overall tournament programs during this period, but the rest were provided by Fort Smith sportswriter/historian Leland Barclay and myself.
1992 was the last year of the Overall Tournament. After that, the AAA went to a State Finals format where every championship game was played at one site. It has been at Barton Colesium in Little Rock, the Pine Bluff Convention Center, Verizon Arena in North Little Rock and the Hot Springs Convention Center.
Unfortunately, there are some really good programs from this era that are missing. The biggest ones are the AAAA state and Overall programs in the early 1980s when West Memphis won back-to-back titles. Also missing is the final Overall program in 1992.
