    I agree with the ranking except for Boone Co. at 7? I would put them last at 10. They weren't good at all last year and from what I've heard they have nothing in the pipeline. I heard they will be absolutely horrible!

    If they are that bad they should not be in the Top 10 then. Being "last" in the Top 10 means you are better than over 1/2 the teams in the region........

    Sophomore class at HHS ..... Besides Cramer, there's Scwalbach, Ziegler, Turner, Juett .... Lot of arms in that class alone ...

    Don't go to sleep on Cooper. Four guys that can spin it in the mid to upper 80's...Reid, Ollier, Phillips (all juniors) - and sophomore southpaw Walters. Pitching and defense wins region titles!

    How do the top 3 Highlands, Cov Cath, Beechwood compare to the rest of the state? Where should they stand/rank overall in KY?

    Honestly, I would have to think Highlands would be in the top 10 in the state... mainly due to it's strong pitching. Then I believe there is a bit of a drop-off. Cov Cath will come in barely in the top 25 and Beechwood around 30-35.....my guess.

    I've been told that Highlands will probably be 1 or 2 when PBR comes out with their rankings..

    IMO, the top 3 are:

    1. CovCath
    2. Highlands
    3. Conner

    There's more than a few ??? about most of the other teams in the region. Like...
    Cooper has some solid pitchers and players, but is mostly the same team from last year that only won 8 games. Can this junior heavy team turn things around this year?
    Beechwood lost a few GREAT players from last year. They still have plenty of talent, but are young.
    Ryle lost the most starting seniors from 2016 than any other top Region 9 team.
    Dixie returns some solid players but will likely lack depth in their pitching and hitting lineup. Same goes for St. Henry.

    A team that will surprise some people this year will be Holy Cross. I'd rank them in the 8-9th spot in the Region.

    Dixie is way to high. I think they will struggle this year. I watched them scrimmage Beechwood and when I left in the 6th it was 16-1..

    Any updates/comments on HHS scrimmage against Conner? I know it's just a scrimmage, but did anything stand out other than what was expected?

    I didn't count Campbell because they are in the 10th Region. I would have them 3rd then behind HHS & CovCath..
