Congratulations to the Lexington Christian Lady Eagles for setting the standard in the Touchstone Energy All-A Basketball Classic. Coach Jason Seamonds and the lady Eagles won an unprecedented third title this past weekend at Alumni Coliseum in Richmond. No other team in the history of girl’s basketball has won three straight titles in this classic event.

LCA was led by their triple threat of Courtney Clifton, and Sarah Beth Barnett, along with Anna Martin, who was tourney MVP. These three players gave LCA a potent scoring attack. LCA has also distinguished its program by winning the 2007 Houchens KHSAA Sweet Sixteen State Basketball Tournament. They are looking ahead this year to March 11-14 in Bowling Green, and to possibly making another state tournament run.

Coach Seamonds is quick to point out that there are many players who are part of the success story at Lexington Christian. Freshmen Kelly Mitchison contributes to the team effort at point guard. Kaitlin Dorton and Rachel Cox are key defensive players. Killian Rose, Kelly Rinehardt and Caitlin Panter have been great leaders all season long compiling an 18-4 record to date.

Congratulations to the Lady Eagles for setting a standard that will be hard to top in the future. Watch out for them as District Tournament play begins on February 23, 2009.

Watch the LCA lady Eagles on the “Scholastic Ball Report” this Saturday at 11:30 a.m. as the ‘Team of Week’, on WKYT Channel 27.
