Madisonville Host to 7th District, Boys' Region Tourney

Madisonville not only hosts the Seventh District Tournament next week, but they will also be the site for the boys Second Region Tournament.

The Maroons (16-9) begin play Monday at 7:30pm as an overwhelming favorite over a Dawson Springs (2-21) team they beat 79-8 and 75-19 this year.

Tuesday at 7:30pm, Caldwell County (16-10) plays Hopkins County Central (6-19).  Caldwell won a pair of blowouts over the Storm, but Hopkins Central has won three of four entering the postseason.

The championship game will be played Thursday at 7:30pm.  Madisonville has won the last four district titles, while Hopkins Central last won a title in 2009.  Caldwell County won a title in their first year in the Seventh District in 2007 but none since.  Dawson Springs last won a district title in 1997.

For the ladies, it’s the same matchups as the guys meaning each night’s contests will boil down to boy/girl doubleheaders.

Madisonville (19-7) plays Dawson Springs (3-18) Monday at 6, while Caldwell County (13-12) plays Hopkins County Central (15-10) Tuesday at 6.  The girls championship is Thursday at 6pm.

Caldwell County has won the last two district titles, and Madisonville won the five before that.  Hopkins Central took their last title in 2006, while Dawson Springs has never won a district title and haven’t won a tournament game since 2006.
