The Bluegrass State Games will host dozens of boys’ and girls’ high school soccer teams this weekend at Masterson Station Park and Lexington Christian Academy.

There are three varsity levels of play and one junior varsity level of play for the boys and girls, respectively. Teams playing in the “Varsity A” level are considered the strongest.

Lafayette and Paul Laurence Dunbar’s boys’ teams will compete in Varsity A. Franklin County, Madison Central and Woodford County also will field teams in that division.

Dunbar also will field a team in Varsity B along with Lexington Christian. Bourbon County, Clark County, Danville, Madison Southern, Mercer County, Montgomery County and Scott County will also play in that division.

Bryan Station is the lone city boys’ team in the Varsity C division. Anderson County and Paris also are participating from the area.

Paul Laurence Dunbar is the only girls’ team from the city with an entry in the Varsity A division. Anderson County also has a team in that division.

Lafayette represents the city in girls’ Varsity B. Clark County, Danville, East Jessamine, Franklin County, Madison Central, Montgomery County, Scott County and Woodford County will compete there, too.

The Sayre girls will play in the Varsity C portion. The Spartans are the only central Kentucky squad at that level.

Play begins Friday. There is no medal round.
