15th Region District's Preview / Final Rankings / Season Awards

By 15th Region - 15th Region Overview: The 15th Region has played out as many would have predicted this season. Lawrence County is top dog and undefeated in the region. Magoffin County is solid but the loss of their senior big man may be pivotal during the post season.

Second Region Rankings and District Previews

By The Scribe - The road to Rupp goes through the Eighth District. Every year since 2002, the Second Region champion has hailed from District 8. In fact, in 2011 when Christian County won the school’s first state title, they didn’t even win their own district. They advanced to the region tourney as a runner-up to University Heights. It appears that streak will be safe for another year as Christian County has been ranked number one in the state for most of 2016, while Hopkinsville took the Colonels to overtime a few weeks back. The Colonels (24-2, 6-0) haven’t lost to a Kentucky school all season... Read More →

14th Region District Tournament Previews and Region Rankings

By All State Baseball - 53rd District Tournament Preview: Jenkins High School will be host of this year’s 53rd district tournament. The Knott Central Lady Patriots are the favorites and should win this district by 10+ but Jenkins Lady Cavaliers and Whitney Creech could make some noise and upset the Lady Pats. Knott Central has defeated Jenkins twice this season, once by 18 and one by 11 and not to mention that the Lady Cavs are playing some good ball right now, winning 4 of their last 5 games.
