114 Teams Left

The world's greatest high school sporting event kept going today, as the folks in the Fourth Region decided to start their tournament on a Sunday.  For the quarter-finals, the district champions got to play at home.  Here were the results (home teams listed first):

Allen County-Scottsville 53 - 48 Russellville
(8) Bowling Green 66 - 50 Clinton Co.
Metcalfe Co. 58 - 73 Greenwood
Franklin-Simpson 59 - 62 Barren Co. (OT)

Tomorrow features a huge game at 6 PM Central.  Erlanger St. Henry, which was ranked number 2 in the state last Monday, lost their district title game to Dixie Heights.  Now they get their punishment in the regional quarterfinals:

(3) Covington Catholic v. (2) Erlanger St. Henry (at Covington Holmes)

These two teams met on February 23 at St. Henry, and St. Henry (the Crusaders) won 61 to 60.


  1. Lyon County (22-4) had an unusually strong team this year. But the Fifth District champs will not be winning the Second Region. Hoptown (7-4), playing only its 11th game of the season, beats Lyon County 58-56 in the first round of the Second Region tournament.

  2. More heartbreak in the Second Region, as University Heights beats Crittenden County 80-79.

  3. Madisonville-North Hopkins won its first-round game in the Second Region last night, 49-45 over Webster County.

    That tournament continues Wednesday: University Heights vs. Henderson County. Thursday’s other semifinal, Maroons-Hoptown, is Thursday. The championship is Saturday evening. All three of these games are at North.

  4. Tilghman and Murray eliminated Carlisle County and Mayfield from the First Region tournament Monday night at Murray State. The first round continues this evening with McCracken County-Fulton County at 5:30 and then Graves County-Marshall County at 8. Semifinals are Friday; championship, Saturday.

    I wonder how often there have been First Region tournaments in which Graves and Marshall did not play against each other.

  5. That St. Henry-CovCath rematch last night in the Ninth Region? 61-60 again! St. Henry again!
