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 →

8th region re-cap and rankings 1/16/17

By 8th Region Warrior - Lots of games being played in the 8th region this past week with district rivalry's and the ALL A taking place. Congrats to the Walton Verona Bearcat's on winning an exciting tournament this week and good luck representing the 8th region this week. This region is definitely top heavy with 4-5 teams, but the middle of the region I think will play a big role in this year's regional tourney. Hard to believe but we are only 6 weeks out of district tournament play. Whoever is able to get hot like Aaron Rogers has will punch their ticket to Rupp Arena. 1. Oldham County Colonels - They have... Read More →

Inside the 9th Region (1/17)

By Walter - Another week, another shake up in the 9th region rankings. A quick look at each team's record after the top 3 shows you just how close the rest of the top 10 are.

Covington Catholic (15-4) After losing to South Laurel last week, the Colonels responded with blow out wins over Winton Woods, OH (74-36) and Newcath (69-41) and followed that up with a win over one of the better teams in Ohio, Dayton Dunbar (70-68).

Inside the 1st Region - Week 6

By silo11 - Not a whole lot changed this week in the region. There was some movement at the bottom of the rankings as Carlisle County is starting to play a whole lot better. Shout out to Christian Fellowship with a 4 game winning streak and a chance to continue that into February. Other than that, the Region 1 All “A” Classic has started and will continue over the next few days. Mayfield is the strong favorite to win and advance to the state tournament this year, but don’t count out Murray completely. Huge game this Friday when McCracken County visits Marshall County. Both teams are contenders... Read More →

By mcpapa - A little bit of movement in this week's rankings as a result of last week's action, but nothing earth-shattering. Campbell County remains solidly ensconced in the top spot even after a close call, and the regional All-A tournament told us quite a bit about some of the smaller schools. 1. Campbell County (16-1, 5-1 region). The Camels ran their winning streak to 14 with a convincing district win over Brossart, a big win across the river and a close call against Conner. Bertsch and Hegyi led te Camels with 25 and 16 in the 74-45 decision over Brossart, Hegyi had a big 35 point-effort... Read More →

Inside the 6th Region (1/16/2017)

By coachlee - LIT week in Louisville is a big thing and this past week history was made for one 6th region team. Fern Creek earned their first LIT championship in 70 years of this long running event. The Tigers had only ever been to one LIT Championship game during this time (2004), so this was a monumental championship for the Fern Creek High School & entire community. Eleven 6th region teams made the 2017 LIT but only 4 scored victories as 7 recorded losses in their openers. Bullitt East and Fairdale each recorded an opening victory while Valley and Fern Creek made the semi-finals with the Tigers... Read More →

Inside the 13th Region (01-16-16)

By Les - 1. Corbin (13-2 overall, 6-0 vs. 13th Region competition) If there were any doubts Corbin wasn’t the top team in the 13th Region then they’re none now after seeing Corbin dominate Harlan County during Saturday’s match-up between the two teams. The Redhounds pulled out a dominating 72-54 win over the Black Bears behind a 31-point, 15-rebound and eight assist effort by junior guard Andrew Taylor, who is averaging more than 30 points a game. Corbin will be tested this week with a road game at Jackson County on Tuesday and a road game at Knox central Friday that is a rematch of an earlier... Read More →
