Inside the 6th Region (1/23//2017)

By coachlee - 4 weeks remaining in the regular season before district play begins and for most teams that is 8-10 games to post their final records.

Here it goes.... 1) Fern Creek (19-2)- One game is all the Tigers had and that was at JTown this past Tuesday.

By All State Baseball - 1.Elliott County (14-1): The Lions continue to impress people. Having won 8 straight including winning the 16th Region All “A” Classic. Their opening first round game in the KHSAA All “A” State Tournament with Paris should be nothing less than a barn burner Thursday night. 2.Boyd County (15-4): Boyd County has won 5 straight and 6 of their last 7 games. During that stretch, the Lions have outscored their opponents 558 to 447, that’s an average of 80 points a game and only giving up 64 points a game during that stretch, that’s filling up the basket in a hurry. 3.Greenup County...

The value of the past and moving toward the future

By ChiefSmoke - I am writing this blog before our Perfection Workout this afternoon. What a blessing to be back in my hometown and getting ready for another season of football in central Kentucky. I am especially excited because we are renewing some old local rivalries, like getting to go to another Boyle-Mercer football game. I have been to several of those, especially in the 70s and 80s. And, we are playing at old Harrodsburg HS(Alvis Johnson Stadium). With the improvements made in the bleachers, lighting and playing surface, there is no better place for a HS football game. As I sit here with my... Read More →
