By TDC - The 2017-18 season featured some high-powered offensive talent across the 12th Region, led by Mercer County’s Mr. Basketball, Trevon Faulkner. Mercer, Pulaski, Somerset, Boyle and West Jessamine all spent time in various state top 25 polls during the season, and all were capable of putting up a lot of points on any given night. It was Southwestern, however, who controlled pace in the Regional Tournament with a disciplined offense and a stifling defense, holding Region favorites Mercer and Pulaski to nearly 30 points below their season average in the semifinals and finals, to punch their...

Class 2A Notebook: Chalk It Up, Danville Only Lower Seed To Win in Round 1

By ATLCat - Home Sweet Home Of the sixteen First Round playoff games in Class 2A, all but one of them were eventually won by the higher seeded team hosting the game. Danville was the lone team to take their show on the road and pull an "upset" in terms of seeding, though you would be hard-pressed to find anyone who did not expect the Admirals to leave Round 1 victorious. Danville now earns the right to seek revenge against District Champion Somerset. The Briarjumpers won a hard fought game 21-10 against the Admirals earlier this season on Danville's homefield. If the Ads are up to the challenge or... Read More → 7th Region Boys Basketball Preview

By Smallhoops - Will this be the season someone other than Trinity or Ballard wins the Seventh Region? Perhaps.

3A Notebook: West and Wandale but Room for Just One "W" in the Playoffs

By gchs_uk9 - Two Late Picks Seal a Classic for Lawrence County Most expected Western Hills at Lawrence County to be one of the best first round games in the Class 3A playoffs. Ninth-ranked Western Hills and recent Kentucky commit Wandale Robinson were slight favorites over a Lawrence County club that has spent most of the season just outside the top ten and has a superstar in their own in quarterback Noah West. No one expected what ultimately took place in Louisa on Friday night: a 78-74 Lawrence County victory that ranks as one of the most exciting games in Kentucky high school football history. ...

By DragonFire - 2017-18 was another banner season for the 4th Region. Warren Central represented the region with a state semifinal finish, which followed Bowling Greenís state title the season before. Owing mostly to Bowling Greenís four year run, the region has now placed a team in the state semifinals four out of the last five seasons. Eleven of the regionís seventeen teams had a winning record a season ago, though only three finished with more than twenty wins. As usual, the 14th District representatives will be favored in region play, and will look to add to their 17 year run as placing the region... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Class 3A Football Playoff Preview

By gchs_uk9 - REGION I Is it time for change in Region I? After three consecutive regional championships by Elizabethtown, the Panthers slipped to 6-4 this season and seem more vulnerable than in years past. Caldwell County is still strong and Paducah Tilghman just completed one of their best regular seasons in years. Is that enough? Elizabethtown, semifinal losers to Boyle County in 2017, suffered heavy losses due to graduation and began the season 0-3. Six consecutive wins, including yet another district championship, came next, before losing a one-point nail-biter to highly regarded Class 2A foe... Read More →

BluegrassPreps Class 2A Football Playoff Preview

By Ram - Region I- District 1 vs. District 2 Mayfield has looked the part of a Title favorite since Day 1. The undefeated Cardinals have a lethal Offense, an opportunistic Defense, and plenty of play-making at the disposal one of the Stateís best Head Coaches to utilize. Hancock County, entering 5-5, will serve as the first sacrificial lamb on Mayfieldís inevitable march to the Regional Finals. McLean County most likely awaits in Round 2. The Cougars deserve to be commended for an excellent season where they surpassed expectations and flirted with the Top 10 posting a 7-3 record, but the Cardinals... Read More →
