  • Some more stuff from last week's games:

  • Covington Catholic won its second game in three weeks, beating Grant County 47-9 on Saturday. The Colonels (2-5) meet their biggest rival, Highlands, this Saturday. The Bluebirds (2-5) also won last week, topping Dixie Heights 42-7. It's been a disheartening year for both squads; a rivalry win in district play would be a nice pick-me-up.
  • Sophomore Grant Dyer rushed for 109 yards and two TDs for CovCath in the win. The Colonels went down 6-0 early but answered with a 34-0 run.

    Nick Kendall rushed 26 times for 115 yards and two TDs for Highlands in its victory.

  • Kevin Whitaker rushed for 107 yards and a TD and threw for 195 and two TDs in Leslie County's 30-20 win at Prestonsburg. The Eagles improved to 7-0 and will travel to Shelby Valley (6-1) in a big Class 2A, District 8 game this week.
  • Kent Phelps reached 1,000 yards on the season after running for 230 yards and three TDs in Paintsville's 38-12 win at Fairview.
  • University of Kentucky commit Kash Daniel reached 100 tackles on the year after getting 10 in the win. Daniel rushed for 64 yaqrds and threw for 73 yards and a TD.>/li>

  • Pulaski County cruised to its fifth straight win, topping Lincoln County 56-6. Riley Hall went 15-for-20 for 259 yards and two TDs for the Maroons (6-1).
  • Sophomore Kaylon Luster showed out for Fort Knox in its 74-44 win over McCreary Central. He finished with 258 yards and three TDs for the Eagles (2-5).>
  • Rodjay Burns had 213 yards and three TDs on only four catches in Trinity's 63-7 smashing of Eastern on Friday.
  • Xondre Willis had 120 yards and two TDs on 13 rushes for Belfry in its 27-23 win against Lawrence County.
  • Noah Richardson scored twice and had 166 yards on 12 carries in Walton-Verona's 35-7 win over Gallatin County.

    Franklin County's C.J. Jones and Paducah Tilghman's Teri Doss took individual medalist honors.

    John Augenstein of Owensboro Catholic finished first in All-State points on the boys' side. Madison Central's Tristyn Nowlin accomplished the feat for the girls.

  • Boys' district tournament schedules for next week.
  • Girls' district tournament schedules for next week.
  • Volleyball

    The final week of the regular season tips off on Monday. Here are the district tournament schedules for the teams in Region 11:

    41st District at Franklin County

    Oct. 20: Woodford County vs. Franklin County, 6 p.m.

    Oct. 21 (Finals): Western Hills vs. TBD, 6 p.m.

    42nd District at Bryan Station

    Oct. 20: Henry Clay vs. Sayre, 6 p.m.; Scott County vs. Bryan Station, 7:30 p.m.

    Oct. 21 (Finals): Semifinals winners, 7 p.m.

    43rd District at Paul Laurence Dunbar

    Oct. 19: Lexington Catholic vs. Lafayette, 6 p.m.

    Oct. 20: No. 2 seed vs. No. 3 seed, 6; Monday's winner vs. No. 1 seed, 7:30

    Oct. 21 (Finals): Semifinals winners, 6:30

    This district's pairings still to be determined because the top three seeds are up in the air. The outcome of Lexington Christian's game at Tates Creek is the final key to the equation.

    If Tates Creek wins, it will go 4-0 in district play and be the No. 1 seed. Paul Dunbar (3-1 in district) would be No. 2 and LCA would be third with a 2-2 district record.

    Should LCA pull off the upset, three teams would finish with a 3-1 district record. That would lead to a blind draw for the first seed, with the other two seeds determined base on the head-to-head record of those squads.

    Lexington Catholic (1-3 in district) and Lafayette (0-4) are locked into the fourth and fifth seed, respectively.

    44th District at Berea

    Oct. 19: Madison Southern vs. Berea, 6 p.m.

    Oct. 20 (Finals): Madison Central vs. TBD, 6 p.m.
