4A East Semi-Final: Last Dance and Last Chance

By Bluegrasscard - When KHSAA did its first re-alignment of the 6-class system Highlands found itself in a position to stay in its natural position in the 4A Class after playing up in the 5A Class in the original setup to keep local rivalries on the schedule. This brought two program who had met sporadically under the four class system together - the Fort Thomas Highlands Bluebirds and the Lexington Catholic Knights. Prior to the 2011 season realignment Lexington Catholic had lost three straight Region Championship games to in-district Boyle County. Based on that rough track record, most assumed that the...

2014-15 Kentucky High School Basketball Preview - 6th Region

By GoHardITP - 6th Region Preview 1. Pleasure Ridge Park- Can Coach Dale Mabry have his Panthers primed for another run to Rupp Arena? A very depleted starting lineup would cause problems for most teams and the Panthers are losing some really good players such as Antonio McDaniels, LaMontray Harris and D'Angelo Hunter to name a few from their State Tourney team last year. However, the system at PRP just keeps finding replacement parts and they have the most exciting player in the region in Richard Gaines. He will lead his squad along with Hunter Stevenson and Drew Glass. They should easily win their... Read More →
