11th Region Week 5 Rankings and Recap

By mooremiller31 - The holiday tournaments have come and gone and the 11th Region is starting to take form for the stretch run. As always the 43rd district looks to be a nightmare for the teams involved while the rest of the region could end up in who knows what type of order. Should be a fun ride to February and I expect the cream to rise to the top. Team of the Week - Madison Southern The Eagles had an outstanding Christmas break. Winners of 8 in a row and the Mountain School Boy Classic. Michael Jefferson is averaging 16.7 points and 6.8 rebounds per game for the Eagles. After a 0-3 start to the season... Read More →

By SHS Future - Inside the 12th Region Happy New Year to all of the BluegrassPreps community! As we welcome the new year, we can also reflect back on December to analyze what we have learned about the 12th Region thus far. Pulaski County looks to be the team to beat. Southwestern, Mercer County, Lincoln County, and West Jessamine look to be teams that can challenge the Maroons but are not quite on the same tier as Pulaski County. The 48th District could be a competitive district as all three teams have winning records coming into January. And Peyton Gover is making his mark on the 2016-2017 season as he... Read More →

By ApolloFan98 - 1.Apollo Eagles(11-1) – SAME – Since losing their season opener, Apollo has won 11 straight. This includes a 4-0 run in the OIT and a 3-0 run in their own Holiday tournament.

Inside the 6th Region (1/2/2017)

By coachlee - As we look back on the 2016 part of the 2016-17 season one thing is for sure....the 6th region can make a strong case as the juggernaut of all 16 regions this season. At season's end if you make it out of the 6th, you will have earned your trip to Rupp and be battle tested. The 6th has always had teams capable of winning the State Tournament, but the overall depth this season makes it a region that few can match. What we have learned so far is that the top 7 teams all can pack a punch. At the top, the Fern Creek team has played as tough a schedule as anyone in the state while only losing... Read More →

Inside the 5th Region (12/26/16)

By PurplePride92 - There has been a surprise or two to start the season in the 5th Region. North Hardin stumbled out of the gate as did Taylor County and both appear to be righting the ship. Bardstown has gotten off to the start we expected from them and Adair County only has one loss at the moment. Bethlehem and Larue County are still undefeated. John Hardin was undefeated until they faced Central Hardin along with a couple of games immediately after that but have turned things around. Lots of season left for what looks to be a very competitive chase for the crown of 5th Region champion! 1. Bardstown... Read More →
