Feb. 27, 2013 — Boys:

1. Fleming County (25-6)

2. Russell (25-7)

3. Ashland (22-9)

4. Morgan County (22-7)

5. Boyd County (21-11)

6. Rowan County (18-13)

7. Lewis County (15-14)

8. West Carter (9-19)

The 16th Region Tournament bracket has been released and the eight final teams in make all the cut. Fleming County continues to roll, winning the 61st District tournament. Morgan defeated West Carter by a nose in the 62nd District title game to move up a spot. Ashland and Russell won their respective districts. The best part about this year’s tournament is that anybody can win it all. It should be a fun week.

Girls:

1. Ashland (22-6)

2. Boyd County (24-8)

3. East Carter (24-7)

4. Fleming County (19-10)

5. Lewis County (17-12)

6. Rowan County (15-14)

7. Russell (14-16)

8. West Carter (12-17)

The odd part about the girl’s rankings is that one District Champion, Russell is below the team they beat (Lewis County) for the district championship. That’s the best part about this time of year because anyone can beat anyone. The top three teams stay the same, despite Boyd losing to Ashland in the 64th District title game. Fleming County moves into the top four defeating Rowan County in the 61st title game. The girls 16th Region Tournament does not kick off until Saturday where all first-round games will be on that day.
