There are multiple local teams still ranked in the AP Kentucky Top-10 rankings heading into Week 8.
Their football team is having perhaps its best season ever as they head into this week's match up against Grant County with a 4-1 record so far this year.
Even though it was an away game for Beechwood, the Tigers and their fans looked right at home at Covington Catholic as they pushed around the Colonels for an impressive 28-13 win.
In what at halftime seemed to be a competitive, slug-it-out game, Simon Kenton scored five straight second-half touchdowns to crush Campbell County, 45-14.
The Bellevue Tigers picked up their third straight win Friday night and handed the Holmes Bulldogs their fifth consecutive loss.
