Barren County, Glasgow football game will go on hiatus
Posted: January 29, 2016

GLASGOW – Jeff Griffith, the head football coach at Barren County High School, announced Friday that after the 2016 season, the Trojans will be dropping rival Glasgow from their schedule for the 2017 and 2018 campaigns.

Griffith informed Glasgow High School coach Jeff Garmon of his decision via email on Friday. Part of the reason for the change is South Warren High School will be joining Barren County’s district in 2017.

“As someone who’s been here a year now, you have to evaluate what’s best for our program right now at Barren County. We’re a program that (has) traditionally (been); let’s face it, we’ve been a middle-of-the-pack type of program,” Griffith said. “It is no fault of Glasgow’s. Glasgow has a tremendous program and this is not going to hurt them at all. I don’t think this is going to hurt our program, I am hoping it is going to enhance it over the next two or three years.”

“I am disappointed. And when I say I am disappointed, I am disappointed from a community standpoint,” Garmon said. “I know, with my eyes, I see how many people are at the games. That’s where the disappointment comes. I know our fans come out for that game and I know Barren County’s fans come out for that game.

“I think the game will be missed. But I do understand Jeff’s take on it and his side of it, what he believes is best for his program. I have to respect and honor that.”

The two teams began playing in the 1970s when Barren County High School opened. The annual game was cancelled in 1980, according to Glasgow athletic director Craig Cassady, due to unfortunate decisions by some students. The rivalry was picked back up in 1988 and the two teams have played ever since.

The rivalry has been one-sided toward Glasgow. Since 1998, the Scotties are 14-4 against the Trojans, including consecutive wins from 1999-2005 and 2009-2013. Barren County’s only victories during that time came in 1998, 2006, 2008 and 2014. GHS has also outscored Barren County, during that stretch, 508-196.

“We know it is a rivalry game. For it to be a rivalry game, to be quite frank, we don’t win enough of those games,” Griffith said. “And I understand for the community it is a gate game, but at the same time we have to do right now what I think and, in discussions with other people, what we think is best for the Barren County football program.

“I know there is going to be some disappointment about playing (but) I am not going to do that at the expense of what I think is best for our program, for a program that has had (something like) 16 straight losing seasons.”

Griffith said there was no specific reason for selecting to drop Glasgow over other teams on his schedule and that he will revisit adding the Scotties back to the gridiron schedule for the 2019 and 2020 campaigns.

“This is a two-year hiatus, so to speak, for ’17 and ’18, for us to try and get a little more footing on our program,” Griffith explained. “We will revisit it in the next two-year cycle and go from there. I know this might seem a little uncommon for here because it will be the first time Barren County and Glasgow will not have played in probably 30 years.”

Griffith said dropping and adding teams to football schedules happens all the time, saying he can remember when he was coaching at Bowling Green High School Glasgow elected to drop the Purples after playing them for several years.

“Glasgow was doing at the time what was best for their program. It just happens,” Griffith said. “It is not like we’re never going to cross those roads again. We’re just doing what we think is best for our program right now, that we need to do to try and get it better.”

Barren County’s district in 2017 and 2018 will include: Bowling Green, South Warren, Grayson County and Greenwood.

“Make no mistake, our schedule is going to be very tough,” Griffith explained. “We will be playing in one of the toughest districts in the state with the addition of South Warren to our district.”

The move now leaves Glasgow to try and find teams to fill vacancies on its schedule. Barren County has also decided not to play in the Scottie Bowl beginning in 2017, so Garmon must find a replacement for the Trojans in the bowl and regular-season games.

“We’re going to now have to find someone else to play. I will leave that up to coach Garmon, as to who he wants to get,” Cassady said. “That leaves us into looking into someone else to play and when you’re making out these schedules, it is not always the easiest thing to do. We had a little bit of success with a very young team (this past year) and people take that into consideration and sometimes it is difficult to find opponents when you’ve had success and have some good quality players coming back.”

Garmon has no hard feelings toward the Barren County program.

“I am not hard on Jeff or hard on Barren County,” Garmon said. “I understand and I understand their decision they had to do for themselves.”

Glasgow girls in region final after beating Metcalfe
Posted: January 25, 2016

EDMONTON – With his team not playing quite as sharp as he would have liked, Glasgow High School coach Justin Stinson made a minor adjustment at the intermission and the Lady Scotties responded by blowing open a nine-point game at the half to run away with a 71-46 victory over Metcalfe County in the semifinals of the All “A” Region 4 Girls Basketball Classic Monday.
“We made a minor adjustment at the half,” Stinson said. “Metcalfe County wanted to play at a slow tempo and we wanted to play at a fast tempo. Once we were able to pick up the tempo late in the first half we were able to expose some athleticism.”
“Glasgow is so talented and I thought they played well today,” said Metcalfe County coach Josh Hurt. “They were able to press our guards and we just didn’t do a good job of finishing plays today. And once they were able to get it (lead) to 12 or 15 points, they’re very hard to stop.”
The win made Glasgow’s overall record 12-6 and put the Lady Scotties in the All “A” championship game against Monroe County. The Lady Falcons moved through the semifinals with a 70-40 victory over Cumberland County.
Metcalfe County fell to 7-11 on the year.
Glasgow took a nine point halftime lead, 37-28, and pushed it to double digits by opening the third period on a 7-4 run, sparked by baskets from Skyler Burd and Amanda Lee. Metcalfe County 6-foot-3 junior center Mackenzie Coleman tried to keep the Lady Hornets in the game. She scored her team’s first eight points of the second half, surrounded by Glasgow defenders on every shot, and cut the GHS margin back to nine at 45-36 on two free throws with 2:07 to go in the period.
But the Lady Scotties scored 11 of the final 13 points of the quarter, highlighted by baskets from Burd, Lee, and seven straight points from Breanna Glover, to close out the period and give the Lady Scotties a 56-38 advantage.
“It is a struggle for us to play Glasgow from behind,” Hurt said. “We’re not the type of team that creates a lot of turnovers.”
Glover led all scorers with 31 points. Lee tallied 15 points and Hale had nine. Burd scored eight points, while Heidi Holgate, Ashanti Gore, Kylee Wilson and Jaidyn Franklin scored two points each.
Coleman led Metcalfe County with 20 points in the losing effort. Shawna Edwards had 14 points, while Kaylee Harbison scored four. Kassie Edwards and Ellie Caffee scored three points each. Brilee Tucker had two points.
“I thought Amanda Lee and Skyler Burd were tremendous,” Stinson said. “Elli Bartley didn’t score, but she did a great job of running the show and getting everyone involved. That’s what good point guards do.
“Breanna had a great game. She’s so versatile. (Not only did she score but) she got the ball to the open man. That’s what it is about. It is about people doing what they can to make plays.”
