BluegrassPreps.com - 2018 8th Region Tournament Preview

By ColonelMike - Well, it finally is here. The annual pilgrimage to The Roy in New Castle. It all started in 1963, right after Henry County HS built the big gym near the center of the 8th region. The 8th region had been held in 1962 at Shelbyville HS, and the Henry County Wildcats had won the affair. Now it moved to the big, shiny new arena in New Castle, patterned after the old Freedom Hall. 55 seasons and 385 tournament games later, the 8th is still played annually at what we now call the "Roy L. Winchester Gymnasium" or, more typically, simply "The Roy". It's the longest stretch of time that... Read More →

Last year Fern Creek started their opportunity to continue that repeat streak by winning the 6th region in 2017. At least 4 other teams have a good shot to stop Fern Creek from being the fourth in line of that streak of repeat championships in the 6th. That list begins with Doss, Butler, PRP, and Fairdale but Fern Creek has their eyes set on continuing the trend. Jeffersontown is a long shot... Read More →
