Games of the week:

Tuesday:

-Calloway @ McCracken, a matchup of preseason top ranked teams. McCracken is still trying to find itself with so many that graduated last year. Calloway returns 4 starters.



Friday:

-Marshall @ McCracken, another matchup of preseason top ranked teams that are still trying to establish themselves among the top teams.


-Calloway Co. @ Graves County, interesting story line. Terry Birdsong goes back to Graves after leaving there to go to Calloway County.


-Hickman County @ Carlisle County, Early 1st District matchup. No rivalry is more heated especially with the transfer of Austin and Colie Bailey from Hickman County to Carlisle County.


-Murray @ Paducah Tilghman, Both teams trying to establish themselves as top ranked teams. PT was impressive last week in their two wins. Murray went 2-1 and was impressive as well.


-Ballard Memorial @ St. Mary, may not look big outside of the region but this is a game between two teams that could make some noise in the All A in January. St. Mary has dominated this game the past couple of years.



Saturday:

-Carlisle County vs. Webster County. This game is part of the Messenger Tip Off Classic held @ Hopkins County Central. Should be a good test for both teams.
