  2. Mitchell has the potential to break into the 1000 point club tonight against Madison Central. He's currently sitting at 983 career points. 17 points away, and he's been averaging 16.4 ppg this season. Beechwood 2018-19: 23 points (1.8 ppg) Beechwood 2019-20: 235 points (8.4 ppg) Covington Catholic 2020-21: 446 points (15.9 ppg) Covington Catholic 2021-22: 279 points (16.4 ppg)
  3. Ipsaro has added 100 points to his total in 5 games played since I posted this. He's averaging 23.2 ppg this season, and with 12 regular season games remaining, that puts him on pace to surpass 1000 points at Cov Cath in his two seasons played thus far - and he still has another season left to play.
  4. Male has posted a link to stream the JV game via the NFHS Network tomorrow: www.nfhsnetwork.com/events/louisville-male-high-school-louisville-ky/gam9c60549594 They have all their other varsity games shown on the upcoming schedule on the NFHS, but not the varsity game tomorrow against Cov Cath. No word on whether or not they will be streaming that one.
  5. Pay-per-view is available to watch all three games tonight on the Colonel Athletic Network page. $50 season passes are still available to watch all remaining home games this season, or tonight's triple header is available for $10 via the "Purchase Single Game Video Stream" header. The Colonel Athletic Network's free audio stream is also available for the varsity game here on Mixlr. Frosh: 5:00pm JV: 6:00pm Varsity: 7:30pm
  6. Both teams still have games to play tonight, but I wanted to get a thread going on this one since the time of tomorrow's tip at Male has been moved. JV teams will play at 1:00pm and varsity will begin afterwards at 2:30pm. Not including the results of their games tonight, #1 Covington Catholic is currently at 16-2 and is undefeated in Kentucky, and #3 Male is 14-3 with in-state losses to Butler, and a 12-point loss to Cov Cath in the semifinals of the King Of The Bluegrass. Who wins tomorrow's rematch in Louisville?
  7. Coach Feldhaus and the Indians knocked off the Colonels in Coach Ruthsatz's first two seasons at Cov Cath, and since then the Colonels have had an 8-game win streak over Madison Central. #12 Madison Central is currently sitting with a 10-6 record, but 5 of their losses have been against quality opponents. They lost in overtime to 8th ranked Pulaski County in their season opener, and had a 5-point loss to 2nd ranked George Rogers Clark a week later. They lost by 7 points to 4th ranked Ballard in Lex Cath's Holiday Classic, and lost the next day to 19th ranked Woodford County in their third g
  8. There are the occasional "SC," "Union," and "United" teams thrown in there too. But you're right, I'm betting it's a play on one of those. Simply because there are already two higher-level "FC" teams within an hour drive of Lexington, I'd personally prefer they didn't go with that one.
  9. I don't know what truth there is or isn't to the rumor about changing back to their previous district, but the district alignment changes would come along with all of the classification changes in 2023, yes. Usually part of the input received from schools after the initial alignment draft is released is feedback from schools/AD's saying, "Hey, do you think you could move us from the district in the draft to this other district so we don't have to travel so much?" I'm not sure what the OC crowd would prefer...6AD5 where they have to deal with Ballard and Trinity every year, but travel muc
  10. Today the club released renderings of a proposed stadium, locate across High Street in downtown Lexington immediately across from Rupp Arena where the current Rupp Arena surface parking lot sits. Renderings also show added multi-level parking garages on both Broadway and High Streets to replace the lost parking from the surface lot, a new 160-room hotel, and a new 250-unit apartment development.
  11. Team name appears, for now, is going by "Lexington Pro Soccer." In a release today they stated that they are currently undergoing "an in-depth branding process" and stated, "This process, which has included significant input from Central Kentucky residents, will lead to the creation of the club’s official name, crest, and colors, which are expected to be released in the coming weeks." Their inaugural season is going to be 2023 in USL League 1. USL1 began competition in 2019 as a Division III competition tier for professional soccer in the United States, and has had a few teams from the orig
  12. Well the Scott County vs. Great Crossing game is always a home game for both teams since they share the Birds Nest. And unless I'm mistaken, the game against Franklin County is the second year of the Battle Of Elkhorn Creek, a bowl that is also hosted at the Birds Nest. Scott County had 5 home and 5 away games in 2021, for the record.
  13. In public schools, I believe the standard is having the job "publicly listed" for a 30 day application period before a new hire can be made. There's a caveat to that, though, that if they are hiring someone from within, so someone who already works within the school district, they don't have to necessarily follow the 30 day policy. I'm pretty sure there are some school districts that have added their own additional requirements on top of that...some won't start interviews until after the job has been posted for 30 days, or they can add on additional time to the application period.
  14. The Cardinals with a flip-flop of their 2021 football schedule. Nice scrimmage added on August 5th against Bowling Green. @Purple88
  15. Aug 5 at Bowling Green (Scrimmage) Aug 12 vs. Central (Scrimmage) Aug 19 vs. Franklin County Aug 26 vs. Lafayette Sep 2 - BYE Sep 9 vs. Bryan Station Sep 14 at Paul Laurence Dunbar Sep 23 vs. Frederick Douglass (District) Sep 30 vs. Great Crossing (District) Oct 7 at Grant County (District) Oct 14 at Montgomery County (District) Oct 21 vs. Ballard Oct 28 vs. Lexington Catholic
  16. Uncanny, Coach. On Wednesday when I was searching on here for the thread you started last May about the KFCA's statement on the football playoff format and the May 5 BOC meeting, I came across a thread where you were talking about Trosper playing middle school ball. Made me sit and think for a moment about how relatively unique you and your dad are to both have been head football coaches for their sons. Shortly after that I thought, "Wow, his son's wrapped up his high school football career and he's handed over the keys to the KFCA both...those are some big changes for Coach Buchanan." I
  17. From yesterday's Board Of Control session... Commissioner Tackett: "We'd heard rumors that KDE was collecting growth factor reports and just weren't publishing. KDE has confirmed, they've not received growth factor reports from all the districts for the last two years, so we don't have a good set of numbers that have been audited and checked that we can use for classification, and won't have that first set until the '22-'23 school year. So as we've said the last three meetings, we know that process is on every coach's mind and every school's mind and there's already rumors going around abou
