Runners-up in 1918 and 1919 (both times to Lexington) which do count. Somerset's biggest problem was two local teams they just couldn't consistently beat. Monticello eliminated them in 1921, 1922, 1925, and 1929. Danville put them out in 1924, 1926, 1927, and 1928. Somerset did make the state tournament in 1923, beating Columbia in the first round before losing to Hazard Baptist Institute.
Lots of success, which is why they are ranked 14th, but not enough to crack the top ten.
