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.

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.

If Whitney Creech does what she wants too, then Jenkins can most certainly upset the Lady Pats for the district crown. ... Read More →
