  1. Dixie won, don’t know the score, but did ask an ump who had a different game, he said Dixie won.
  2. Yes, Tony was named today, I was at Holmes just after school and I am on staff at Holmes in a different sport.
  3. Yes, he took the girls to state either 3 or 4 times, had some nice teams.
  4. Holmes will name a coach Tuesday, was planned for Monday, but unfortunately a former principle passed away and it was decided to wait until Tuesday.
  5. Brad stepped down Monday, the girls basketball job is open as well. Thanks to Coach Carr, as far as I know he will stay on as assistant principle. Will miss him roaming the side lines, worked hard for the program.
  6. The gym is still used, mostly for pratice things, we have been practicing softball in there this past spring' baseball does as well, we have a batting game in there, balcony is gone, still a couple of stands in there. During covid peak it was used as an additional lunch room to keep students separated.
  7. I think the officials got covered tonight, very nice crowd at Holmes.
  8. Not sure who all had new pa announcers, I know in the 35 th district, it was all the same as the past few years, I wasn’t in all gyms, but Conner and Boone are the same veteran guys as well.
  9. I have known Mel since high school years, Mel was an outstanding softball coach and supporter, he loved his Mustangs. Rest In Peace .
  10. Very nice gym at Nicholas, Holmes played there in a holiday tournament. I grew up in Nicholas County, still visit Carlisle frequently, I live in Florence and usually go 75 to Williamstown , take 36 to Cynthiana and plenty of food options out on 27 , then take about 30 minute drive via rt 36/ 32 to Carlisle, yes not a lot of options after 6, the shell station has a subway. Good luck to all the teams.
  11. Just to clarify, during the regular season , Holmes took cash at the door for football and basketball, many places we traveled to on the road did not, so I am guessing this is a decision made by the folks in charge of hosting it, not Holmes.
  12. Nice write up, thanks, always good to have you all cover the games.
  13. Final from Ft. Mitchell, very good game until late fourth quarter, Holmes was up 68 to 53 with a minute left, Beechwood made a late run in the last minute of the game, looks like Holmes will play Holy Cross at the Finn in the districts and Beechwood plays Covington Catholic. Nice game today from David Commadore as he had either 20 or 22.
  14. Awesome evening, so many well deserved honors, so many alumni that had not been back to Holmes in years. Thanks to so many for a special evening, to a special educator that has touched so many lives in Covington and the community.
  15. I agree, you came to the right guy here, I jokingly tell everyone that I go around the state rating popcorn, people will text me when Holmes is on the road and ask my rating, I send a pic and rating to them, I told the concessions lady at Henry Clay a few years ago that Scott County was number 1, she took my popcorn back, added salt and the butter looking salt and said, now try it. Sorry Mason County folks, I know your proud of your popcorn, and it’s very good and a nice serving, but I still have Scott County number 1, if it’s micro wave , I don’t even bother getting it. Ok as far as Holmes popcorn goes, it depends on who makes it, different sports organization run it different nights , I guarantee if Softball has concessions, ( I’m the coach) it will be buttered, salted and fresh, I rated it a 7.5 the other night. Enjoy the popcorn, I highly recommend the hot Mets , but get a cold drink with it. Enjoy the tournament, safe travels.
  16. No, not giving up gym for nothing, maybe I miss worded it, they are renting it, but it is not for 4,500, they will keep concessions, the only one working the game that normally does for Holmes games is the clock keeper.
  17. Nice district win for Boone, tuff district, especially on the road.
  18. The $4500 number is not correct, Holmes will get concessions.
  19. I can see both sides of the debate here, yes some very nice gyms in the tenth region, was just in Nicholas County’s, very impressive. Travel is an issue in the tenth and always will be. But it’s Scott’s turn, they could have said ok, we are holding it at Scott, people would complain it’s to small, so they moved it to Holmes, just a few miles north, Holmes has held many region games, even back in the day when students showed up. Holmes held the region last year when the bank of Ky arena ask out of the contract, some one mentioned parking, for those of you not familiar with Holmes, one block past the driveway into Holmes, turn right, some parking behind the school and street parking as well. I have did pa at Holmes for many years and it’s been years since there was standing room only, I hope it works out and wish everyone save travels and a great tournament.
  20. Nice report as usual, the Gary Huhn meet and greet has been moved to the cafeteria instead of the Hartman room.
  21. A very good game at Holmes tonight, back and forth game, Tez Calloway leads Holmes with 43, four wins in a row for the Bulldogs. Nice game from Robinson tonight from Ryle, two pretty evenly matched teams.
  22. Holmes will be honoring Mr. Huhn on Friday January 21st, Gary has taught and been the Holmes basketball and football score keeper since the mid 60s, has over 1500 basketball games, there will be a meet and greet in the Hartman room before the game, which is across from the concession stand, the podium will forever be know as the Gary Huhn podium. There will be a presentation between the JV and Varsity games and will be honored by the Covington board of education, everyone is welcome.
  23. And I agree, 35 th should be played at Holmes ever year, and Covington Catholic likes it at Holmes as well, when it’s their time to host, they usually move it to Holmes.
