2016/2017 6th Region Season Preview

By coachlee - The 2016/2017 basketball season is once again shaping up as a tough 6th Region that has many athletic and well coached programs. Even though 8 of 10 1st team All-Region performers from last season have graduated, many experienced underclassmen return to make this a talent rich region with multiple players holding D1 offers. The 6th region typically produces teams capable of making a deep run into the final games of the state tournament just as Doss did last season. Doss has represented the 6th each of the past two seasons and will be working on the hat trick for a 3rd consecutive trip to... Read More →

A Call to Cherish: Belfry Fans Last Chance To Witness Greatness

By ATLCat - “We shall have no better conditions in the future if we are satisfied with all those which we have at present.”– Thomas Edison The term "spoiled" is often over used and a bit harsh off the tongue. Connotations of the word bring forward temper tantrum prone toddlers and negative emotions associated with people who disregard value. As such, it is not fair to use the word "spoiled" when describing the Belfry fan base. The Pond Creek Nation remains one of the most devout fan bases in the State of Kentucky and often travel better than most any other school, their support does not waver. Yet, as... Read More →
