The closest Highlands came to the Cardinals was a 42-33 defeat in Fort Thomas in 2016. The lone Bluebird win in the series came by a 60-37 score on Aug. 24, 2012. Prior to that, Highlands only met Scott County in 1979 losing 20-0.
But there is a big change coming. Scott County splits into two schools next year with Great Crossing High School opening. Both teams will play in Class 5A, District 6. Scott County was listed as the largest public high school in Kentucky during the 2014 to 2018 classification period.
Beach Theme for OZone:
The Highlands student section came out supporting the Bluebirds wearing beach clothes. The theme for the game at Ryle next week will be neon designs.
"It's honestly the best feeling ever," said Fabs Flores, a Highlands senior who helped lead the cheers. "You get a great sense of community here at Highlands. Being a senior, I hope to pass that down to the underclassmen and hope they have as much enthusiasm for years to come."
Joseph Williams, a 1995 Highlands alum, said the web site has run into technical difficulties, and the website is currently in the process of receiving an upgrade from the web design company. He would like for Highlands students interested in technology to help maintain the site. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Look at Ryle:
The Raiders entered Friday with an 0-2 overall record on the season with losses to defending Class 5A champion Covington Catholic (40-7) in Union and at Lexington Catholic (50-34) in the Bluegrass Bowl. They resume the game at Boone County at 5 p.m. Saturday. The Raiders lead 13-0 at halftime.
