Bluegrasspreps.com 10th Region Champions Campbell County Camels Preview

By mcpapa - Campbell County Camels 28-5 (15-0 region) Coach - Aric Russell (8th year at Campbell County, 164-81 as CC coach) The Camels, number 3 in the (my) preseason regional rankings, were the only squad to go undefeated in region play this season. They lost two first-team all-region players in Cole Hegyi and Garren Bertsch as well as center Brad Geiman to graduation; who accounted for nearly 40 points and over 13 rebounds per game. They were unceremoniously bounced in the 2018 regional tournament in the first round on a last-second shot by Mason County's Pig Williams, then suffered an even... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps.com 1st Region - McCracken County Preview

By silo11 - McCracken County Mustangs Record: 28-6 Coach: Burlin Brower Region 1, District 2. McCracken County started the year as the 5th ranked team in Region 1. They lost quite a bit from the previous year and would really need the players that were coming back to step up and lead. Region 1 was a very tough region at the top this year. Mayfield, Graves County, Paducah Tilghman, and McCracken County were all ranked in the BGP Top 20 at some point this season. The Mustangs started out hot winning 10 of the first 11 games, with the only loss coming to Mayfield. They struggled over the Holidays... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps.com 2nd Region - University Heights Preview

By silo11 - University Heights Blazers Record: 23-7 Coach: Grant Shouse Region 2, District 8. UHA started the year as the third ranked team in Region 2, and district 8. They were considered a dangerous offensive team that couldn’t play defense. That mindset continued into the beginning of the season when Paducah Tilghman put up 88 points on them and Bryan Station put up 82 points. However following the Holiday tournaments, the Blazers seem to find some defense and things began to turn around, but the toughest parts of their schedule still lied ahead. Late January brought about the All “A”... Read More →


Bluegrasspreps.com - Region 3 - Apollo Sweet 16 Preview

By ApolloFan98 - Season recap: Apollo entered the season with some unfinished business. Last year’s team went 22-6 in the regular season and was the favorite heading into tournament play, but they were bounced in the first round of district by Daviess County in overtime. The Eagles had to go back to the drawing board without its leaders, 3rd region player of the year, Zach Hopewell and point guard Tabor Shadowen. The team would return a solid core of seniors in Nathan Boyle, Alex Gray, James Graham and Cory Wilson. Over the summer, guard Hunter Shelton returned to the program from prep school and Angel...

6th Region Recap and State Tournament Preview -- Fern Creek

By coachlee - It has been a bit of a roller coaster season for the Tigers of Fern Creek this season. Fern Creek was the Pre-Season 6th region favorite and as the Christmas tourneys came around it looked like Fern Creek was a force to be reckoned with even beyond the 6th. It was during the prestigious King of the Bluegrass in December that Fern Creek defeated both Covington Catholic and Trinity on back to back nights sending notice around the Bluegrass that they had the talent to compete with anyone. Then came 2018 and in January they lost to Doss during the Louisville Invitational Tournament which was... Read More →

16th Region Recap and State Tournament Preview -- Boyd County

By 24Bricks - The Lions of Boyd County are making their first trip to Rupp Arena since 2000, a statement that sounds surreal given their success isn't the 1980's and especially in the 90's. The path was anything but easy, though. The Lions point guard, Blake Stewart, missed the semifinal game due to illness, but managed to play, and play well in the championship contest, although showing obvious signs of fatigue and sickness. In addition, he suffered a rolled ankle in the fourth quarter of the championship before returning to the game to handle the ball in the most crucial minutes. If that wasn't... Read More →

By DragonFire - Warren Central Dragons Coach: William Unseld Record: 29-5 State Championships: 1 (2004) District: 14 Region: 4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqNjl7HfCXM When Warren Central last appeared in the Sweet 16 in 2013, it was their ninth trip to the state tournament in 12 years. They had seen a stretch of six straight titles (including a state title), two years off, then three titles in four years during that span. The Dragons were extremely used to appearing in the state tournament. Given their three titles in four years and favorite status for 2014, I had called that "The Second... Read More →
