By Walter - A week ago everyone in Northern Kentucky thought that we had FINALLY found a unanimous number 1 team in the region.

Let's take a look at this week's rankings and review last week's (snowy and limited) action. 1.

8th Region SNOW Re-cap and Rankings

By 8th Region Warrior - A lot of snow this week, and that means a lot of cancelled games.

Owen County-The Rebels travel to Frankfort as one of the favorites to win the All A, and play host to KCD in the first round.
