HARRODSBURG - There aren't many No. 4 seeds with better records than Harrodsburg. On the other hand, there aren't many tougher draws than the one the Pioneers have for the first round of the Class A, Region 2 playoffs.
One too many district losses left Harrodsburg facing a trip to Louisville Holy Cross, one of two undefeated teams in Class A, in its return to the postseason Friday.
The Pioneers are in this predicament because they lost three of their five district games after a 5-0 start.
"We kind of saw we were headed in that direction," Harrodsburg coach Terry Yeast said.
Still, only three other teams in all four classes have a better record than Harrodsburg (7-3, 2-3 District 4). Among Class A playoff teams, the Pioneers are listed higher in the Durden Ratings than not only every other No. 4 seed, but also seven of the eight No. 3s, five No. 2s and one No. 1 seed.
