Nelson County


Coach Kelly Wood’s Lady Cardinals finished 18-11 last season playing in the very competitive 5th Region.  Coach Wood faces a rebuilding job as he graduated four starters including 6-3 Samantha Drake who holds the school’s scoring and rebounding records.  The Lady Cardinals will be young this season and should be led by 6-3 So. Cierra Drake and 5-9 So. AJ Lewis.




The Lady Bulldogs finished 5-18 last season and Jeff Sparks takes over as coach to lead Male in the 7th Region battles this season.  The Lady Bulldogs should be led by 5-7 Sr. Ashley Spratt who should put up good numbers this season.  Other players expected to contribute include 5-9 Jr. Andrea Owen and 5-7 Sr. Monique White.  The Lady Bulldogs have a good mixture of experience and youth.




Coach John Kyser’s Lady Chargers finished 20-9 last season and should be very competitive in the 7th Region this season.  6-3 Sr. Lenette Holt averaged double digits in both scoring and rebounding last season.  Other players expected to contribute include 5-6 Sr. Chasity Bell, 5-7 Sr. Aisjah Roan, and 5-5 Jr. Danielle Betts.


Bullitt East


Coach Chris Stallings’ Lady Chargers finished 27-4 last season and despite losing key players to graduation should again be a contender for the 6th Region title.  6-2 Sr. Lindey Young should be a force in the paint and they have an experienced point guard in 5-6 Sr. Jessica Philpott.  Other players expected to contribute include 5-11 Sr. Meredith Polson, 5-7 Sr. Whitney Stansbury, 5-8 Jr. Ashley Duvall, and 5-9 Jr. Nikole Isabel.

5-4 Sr. point guard Maddie Peabody (9.8 ppg) is quick, a good penetrator on offense, and can shoot the ball.  5-11 Sr. center Morgan Clemons (12.4 ppg 8.6 rpg) is a skilled performer and scores in a variety of ways.  5-11 Jr.  Annamarie Campbell has a good mid-range shot and is an excellent defender.  5-11 Sr. guard Monica McGreal (7.3 ppg) creates matchup problems on the perimeter.  5-5 Sr. Hannah Washle is an excellent defender and 5-5 Sr. Katie Bishop scores well from the perimeter.

Other players expected to contribute include 5-6 Jr. Jade Tubb, 6-1 Jr. Jazmin Smith, 6-0 Jr. Olivia Niehoff, 5-9 Jr. Sandy Gahafer, 5-6 Jr. Erica Walsh, 5-7 So. Kristin Matula, and 5-6 Fr. Raven Merriweather.

5-8 Sr. Juliann Miller (13.1 ppg) was the leading scorer last season and should lead the team this season.  5-5 Sr. Lauren Faris and 5-8 So. Whitney Hartlage are expected to have excellent seasons.  5-10 Jr. Christine Roush and 5-11 Jr. Courtney Roush are also expected to be key contributors this season.  There are several other players on the roster capable of stepping up and having very productive seasons.




Friday November 19th


I will, for the sake of clarity, give scores for both halves and the combined score.  Any stats included are not official, but for the most part recorded by me personally.  I don’t put a lot of stock in scrimmage scores as each coach approaches the scrimmages with different goals.  Please understand that these are scrimmages and coaches are experimenting with substitution rotations and using this event as a teaching tool and to prepare for the upcoming season.  Also, since the games are divided into halves with the score being erased after each period, the coaches treat each period as a new game for teaching purposes.

This was an excellent day of pre-season basketball, with both JV and varsity squads playing today.  There was some excellent talent on display today both veteran and underclassmen.  Bullitt East was missing 5-8 Sr. point guard Jessica Philpott who is recovering from ACL surgery and is expected to return later in the season.  The advertised stars played well as expected and several other players impressed today.  Sara Hammond (Rockcastle County) is one of the leading candidates for Miss Basketball and she was very impressive today.  Rebecca Greenwell (Owensboro Catholic) is already one of the very best players in the state and has three full seasons to go.

Mercy is the defending state champion, graduated some key performers but looked impressive today and will be a top contender again this year.  Sacred Heart is a veteran talented squad and Rockcastle County has good talent to go with Miss Hammond.  Clay County will be good again and Whitney Belle Jackson should enjoy an excellent senior campaign.  Assumption’s Dee Dee Sliter had an excellent performance as well as Aisjah Roan  (Jeffersontown) and Ashley Spratt (Male).  Cierra Drake (Nelson County) had an impressive summer and played well in this event.

Lauren Tibbs (Scott) had a very impressive outing and is as good as advertised.  Franklin County will contend in the 11th Region and got good performances from Ashli Mayes and Chelsea Rivers today.  Bullitt East graduated several key players but will be a very solid team by tournament time.




A special thanks to Rick Bolus and Chris Stallings for all their hard work in making this event work.  I would highly recommend this event for any team looking for a high quality pre-season event to prepare their team for the regular season.  Any coach wishing to inquire about next year’s event may contact Rick Bolus at 502-543-7308 or by email at
