4th Region Week 8 Review

By DragonFire - So that was a crazy week. Let's take a deep breath..... 1) Bowling Green (15-3) - 1/15 72-55 W at Christian County, 1/18 61-44 W #12 Warren East, 1/19 45-49 L at #3 Warren Central Previous Rank: 1 This Week: 1/22 vs. #8 Franklin-Simpson, 1/25 vs. #3 Warren Central, 1/26 at #2 Allen County-Scottsville Yes, the Purples lost their first region game of the year, falling for the first time in-region since the region finals last season. With that, they lost a nine game winning streak. Still, they have proven to be the class of the region thus far. Their losses are to BGP ranked teams... Read More →


12th Region Week 8 Review: Shifting Sands

By TDC - Week 8 was yet another exciting one in the 12th Region. There were several games that came down to a last-second shot, some near upsets of state powers by 12th Region teams, and some terrific individual performances. The not-so-shocking revelation for the week: there is a really good team or two in the 45th District who will not be playing in the 12th Region Tournament. Danville looks to be on path for the #1 seed in that District, while Boyle and Lincoln may be battling for #2, and Garrard County will have a say before all is said and done. I would not want to be the team that draws any... Read More →


7th Region Week 8 Review - With David Johnson Back, Trinity Is Looking Strong

By Smallhoops - Congratulations to the Trinity Shamrocks, winners of the 72nd Louisville Invitational Tournament. Seventh Region teams fared well in the LIT, with the semi-finals made up of four Seventh Region teams (Trinity, Waggener, Ballard, and Seneca). In fact, three of those teams (Trinity, Waggener, and Seneca) are all in the 27th district. Looking ahead, it will be a shame that one of those teams will not make it to the Seventh Region tournament. Congratulations also go out to the Christian Academy Centurions, who advanced to the semi-finals of the 2A tournament in Owensboro. The Centurions... Read More →


3rd Region Week 8 Review - Top 3 Starting To Distance Themselves

By ApolloFan98 - With 4 weeks left in the regular season, the top 3 teams in this region are starting to set themselves in stone. While Ohio County is coming on strong, there still seems to be a bit of a gap between 1-3 and 4-12. We'll see if these gaps get wider as the regular season heads toward the finish or if anyone in the middle of the pack can take a step forward and become a real contender. 1. Breckenridge County Tigers (16-2) SAME Kobe Poole continued his great senior season this week, leading the Tigers to their 12th straight win. On Tuesday, Poole scored 16 in Breckenridge's blowout win... Read More →



Football Coaching Changes Around The State

By Colonels_Wear_Blue - We're currently at mid-January, and right now there are only 10 open head coaching jobs on the market. Thus far there have only been 23 jobs that have come open, and that includes completely 2 new jobs showing up on the market in both the varsity program being started at Great Crossing, Scott County's new high school, and in the new head coach for the JV program being formed at Wolfe County. The Wolves are calling their program a "start-up" with the intent of joining KHSAA varsity play for the 2021 season. 23 open jobs is fairly notable in that over the course of the previous four...

8th Region Week 7 Review - A Wild Finish to the Season is Shaping Up

By ColonelMike - 8th Region Week 7 Review – A Wild Finish is Shaping Up OK, we have 8-10 games left in the regular season, but this season quickly became the helter-skelter, topsy-turvey, coin-toss of a region I predicted in the Season Preview. I’m not bragging about my great prediction abilities – no, I think my three cats could have correctly predicted that it was going to take a long time for a true favorite to step up. Of course, that’s assuming we ever will reach that point, with a single favorite. Personally, I think we’ll be heading to New Castle with a wide-open tournament, and plenty... Read More →


1st Region Review Week 7

By silo11 - Things in Region 1 seem to be getting tighter and tighter at the top. McCracken has looked more vulnerable the past couple weeks winning two games by 2 points before finally falling to Graves County. It was a great win for Graves who had just lost to Mayfield. Mayfield needed that victory after falling to Paducah Tilghman in late December. It is a round robin of wins and losses and should make for a great run to the end of the season and into the Region 1 tournament: 1. McCracken County – Coach Burlin Brower BGP #11 2018-19 record: 12-2 Week’s Record: 1-1 The Mustangs lost... Read More →


Region 10 Week 7 in Review - A Clear #1 Emerges

By mcpapa - Week seven saw the region's top-ranked team put a bit of distance between itself and the rest of the pack, but their district won't be a cakewalk. The inaugural 2A tournament began in earnest, and the All-A starts up this week. Without further ado... 1. Campbell County (13-3, 5-0 region, 2-0 37th District). After a brief hiccup at the end of December, Coach Russell's squad has reeled off five wins in a row, and none have been very close. Last week saw the Camels tame the Cougars of Calvary Christian 95-39 behind 24 and 21 from Reid Jolly and Drew Wilson; with 14 players making it into... Read More →


6th Region Week 7 Review

By SportsLife - 1. Butler (15-5): The Bears fell to Fern Creek but bounced back to beat Iroquois and Elizabethtown in Week 7. Butler has won six of its last eight games. 2. Bullitt Central (12-5): The Cougars won two of three games in Week 7, topping Pleasure Ridge Park and Trinity. In between two wins, Bullitt Central suffered a five-point loss to upset-minded Southern. 3. Jeffersontown (12-6): The Chargers claimed back-to-back wins over Southern and Fern Creek prior to falling to host Christian County in the Toyota of Hopkinsville Classic. Jeffersontown has won four of its last six games. 4.... Read More →

By 15th Region - Overview: All-A action tips off in the region this week as a huge Shelby Valley/Paintsville game looms with the winner likely facing Pikeville in the finals, Johnson Central picked up two more wins behind stellar play from Isaiah May and Jacob Rice and every team in the region now has at least two losses.

13th Region Week 7 Review

By Les - 1. Knox Central (15-2 overall vs. 13th Region opponents) The Panthers continue to roll, capturing the Class 2A, Section 4 championship on Sunday with a 67-59 win over Morgan County. Knox Central now possesses a five-game win streak and will face-off against Webster County Friday during first round action of the Class 2A State Tournament. 2. South Laurel (16-2, 8-0) The Cardinals suffered a scare when star JJ Ramey went down with an ankle injury in the first quarter of Saturday’s loss to Frankfort. A time table hasn’t been set for his return, as the Cardinals prepare for three games this... Read More →


11th Region Week 7 Review

By mooremiller31 - Another week has come and gone and just when you think you kind of got it figured out in this region, district matchups come around and shake things up. The #1 spot is a no brainer and has been all season, but spots 2-11, Im not sure anyone knows whats going to happen next! Lets get to it! TEAM RANKINGS 1. Scott County (18-1) - The Cardinals continued their winning ways this past week going 3-0 against Madison Central, Sayre, and Ashland Blazer. The game at Madison Central was no easy task as the Cardinals trailed by as much as 17 in the second half but as all good teams do they found a... Read More →


16th Region Week 7 Review: Parity Reigns Supreme

By Carson Palmer - The same old song and dance continues in the 16th Region. Elliott County was tested for the first time by a region opponent as Rowan County fought them to the final horn. It gives the rest of the region a possible blueprint for an upset once postseason play begins. The rest of the region continues to play competitive games that have resulted in some surprising results such as East Carter shocking Morgan County in Grayson. Should we just throw numbers 2-14 in a hat and pull them out? This week's matchups may provide some clarity to the rankings but don't hold your breath. We try to rate teams... Read More →


9th Region Week 7 Review: A return to #1 for one team and the All A begins.

By PP1 - Covington Catholic silenced some naysayers and confirmed the faith of some believers in their victory over Cooper in front of a sellout crowd on Friday Night. Beechwood nearly laid an egg in a huge district game against Holmes on Friday as well. The All Tournament kicks off Monday night at Beechwood High School for the play-in game between the Tigers and the Newport Wildcats. The subsequent rounds will be played at Newport Central Catholic. There is some confusion on khsaa.com regarding this tournament as it has St. Henry and Holy Cross playing in the first round on Saturday the 12th of... Read More →


2nd Region Week 7 Review

By silo11 - No big changes in this week’s rankings. Webster Count had a nice win over Caldwell County, but can’t seem to get enough consistency to move up in the rankings. UHA suffered a loss to a very good Mayfield team, and Madisonville keeps on trucking, while Hopkinsville tries to get back on track. Here is week 7 rankings: 1. University Heights Academy – Coach Grant Shouse BGP#5 2018-19 record: 15-3 Week’s Record: 1-1 University Heights put a hurting on their old rivals Christian County to the tune of 85-53. Tandy scored 31 points and Hollowell add 21. The Blazers were then tripped up... Read More →
