This week already has some exciting matchups between the top teams, we could see some shake up in the standings by this time next week. 1. Paducah Tilghman – Coach Roderick Thomas... Read More →


BluegrassPreps.com 10th Region Week in Review 12-4-17

By mcpapa - Week one is in the books. The presumptive number one squad survived a nail-biter on the road, the preseason number two doesn't have its (possibly) best player; and if the first week is any indication, the season looks to be a great one for the 10th. Let's take a quick look at last week. 1. Clark County (2-0, 2-0 region) The Cardinals started the week with a 50-point thumping of Nicholas County. Chase Taylor led in scoring with 18, Brennan Canada filled the stat line with 13/6/4, and Ryan Cooper chipped in a dozen. The bench got significant playing time in this one. Game number 2...

BluegrassPreps.com 6th Region Weekly Rankings (12/4)

By coachlee - 1. Fern Creek (1-0): Fern Creek started the season with a tough opening game against the team most everyone considered as their strongest 6th region challenger, PRP.
