Bates' Crazy 8

Sept. 18, 2013 — 1. Fairview (3-0)

2. Ashland (2-2)

3. Raceland (3-1)

4. Lawrence County (3-1)

5. Mason County (3-0)

6. Lewis County (3-0)

7. Russell (1-2)

8. West Carter (2-1)

There were a lot of big games taking place this past week and the top six in the Crazy 8 came away with victories.

The only reason why there was a change in the rankings is because Russell (who lost a heartbreaker to the Tomcats 7-6) did not come away with the victory.

And how about those Comets? After a 14-game losing streak, West Carter reeled off back-to-back victories for the first time since 2010. They have made a believer out of me to earn the No. 8 spot. Of course, they will be tested once again on Friday when they travel to Greenup County.

For almost everyone, this is the last week before the season essentially starts over as we get into district play.
