With all due respect, if you all look at the history Mayfield has had some very good basketball teams as well as football. 1980 Charles Parrott took the Mayfield Cardinals basketball team to the state final four. As I recall he dunked against a team in the final four of the state. The REAL REASON Graves is better in basketball is that we had some good schools that were very small but were competitive against Mayfield however they were the big boy on the block. Enough people in areas of power decided to combine them. Sedalia Symsonia Cuba Farmington, Lowes, Wingo, Fancy Farm were all merged into one school Which is Graves county. Sedalia, Symsonia, Lowes, Wingo, you could count on having good basketball teams every year. The other schools not so much. On occassion Farmington would do ok or Fancy Farm may have one stand out player but it was not the norm. Graves county was formed primarily due to some old guys and influential people who was tired of mayfield getting all the glory They felt they could not compete against them by themselves and they formed the school that is Graves. It was formed for the primary reasom to beat Mayfield in basketball. It has grew from there. Even with that Mayfield has still had some very competitive basketball teams. They have held there own against Graves over the years. One of the smallest teams in the state won the state championship in 1952 which was the Cuba Cubs. The Sedalia Lions girls team went to the State tournament in 1976. This proves bigger is not always better. Mayfield has a good basketball program as well as other sports etc they, just like Graves have a world class football program. Just like Graves has a world class basketball program. The difference is Graves had to combine schools to do it.It was all about BASKETBALL FOR GRAVES PERIOD. THE day will come when Graves and Mayfield will merge. In this county it is all about being the biggest and the best. We all know that this is not all true due to some of what I mentioned earlier. You can be small and still be a champion. It is alot more fun in my estimation too. Its easy to be big and win but it takes courage to be a small school and win.

That's what I pretty much said steve, but less words. Yes, but sports shouldn't be the only reason why schools are in session. EDUCATION is equally the same!

I think sports are important but education should be more important for ALL schools in Mayfield and Graves County.

I said that too. Lol. I agree. Education should be the main priority. You do not go to have a fashion show, for the opposite sex, or sports. Those things are incentives.

Are you 7? Did your parents forget to log off topix? That is by far the most immature thing that I've seen posted on here (mind you, I'm rarely on here, but still).

I am a proud Eagle Alum, and I compare Eagle fans to UK basketball fans. The Wildcat Nation has more fans at away games than ANY other college in the country. We take pride in our school. I live in MD now, and the school here doesn't have any pride or support for ANY of the sports. Kinda sad!!

With that being said, I was brought up in the Mayfield school system, and I'm SO GLAD I was moved to GCHS!! MUCH better people there!!

Mayfield is a Class A school, Graves is a 6 A school. Mayfield football program is nothin but prestigious no matter what you people think say or do... Theyre proven, kinda like the new york yankees, PROVEN!!! Yes there will be years graves beAts them but its just going to happen, losses happen in every sport. Mayfield cant help their district they play in for all u people that say they dont play anybody, well look at it this wAy, what district does graves plAy in basketball??????? All small schools, st mary mayfield and ballard... You wanna talk regional titles for graves????? Who have they beaten over the years in basketball in this region????? A bunch of small schools if ya ask me??? Well maybe besides marshall whom is the only other school in competing size in this region... Over the years i can name many of bigger schools that mayfield has beaten in football, opponets with high quality players, games for the century the big red machine had won... Just ask derek homer, dennis johnson, jake schiff, the list goes on and on.... Id like to see graves county eagles win a state title in class A, it wud probably be embarrassing

It is really bad when there are so many other things going on in this county and all everyone worries about is sports. Let's work on teaching the kids to be the future of this county and not the next one in jail.

Did Mayfield just beat Graves co in basketball? I think they did. It is a good rivalry for both sides. As long as people can be friends after its over or at least civil. Graves is not as good as they think they are with basketball.
