2014 7th Region Tournament Preview

By Getslow - The Seventh Region tournament isn’t quite what it once was; realignment took its toll as did a few coaching changes and small declines in certain longtime powerhouses in the area. Still, this is unquestionably one of the deepest regional tournaments you’re likely to find anywhere in the Commonwealth and it should still manage to provide some great entertainment over the next week. Ballard and Trinity are the clear favorites to meet in the finals but both have played in hard-fought games with other teams in this field already this year. That, as they say, is why they play the games… and some... Read More →

2014 4th Region Tournament Preview

By DragonFire - 4th Region Preview When the season began, I noted that last year the 14th Districtís run had nearly come to an end in the 2013 region finals, but Russell County had not been able to break through the glass ceiling. I said that consequently, Warren Central would be favored to take home their 10th title in 13 years. Despite Saturdayís loss to Bowling Green, that really hasnít changed, although they are less a favorite now than they appeared to be entering the postseason. What also hasnít changed is the notion that the 14th District runs the region. If it is someone other than Warren... Read More →

Defending champ Montgomery County enters this year's tourney with the favorite label, though the Indians seem to be less dominant than they were a year ago.
