LCA's Barnette to play at UK

UK women’s coach Matthew Mitchell has picked up a verbal commitment for the 2010 season. Lexington Christian’s Sarah Beth Barnette will play for the Wildcats, her father, Ross Barnette told 27 SportsFirst.

Barnette is a 6-foot-2 forward and averaged over 13 points and eight rebounds for the Lady Eagles last season.

Barnette helped lead LCA to a state championship during her freshman season and back-to-back All “A” titles the past two years.

According to Ross Barnette, Louisville, Duke, Western Kentucky, Vandy and Arkansas had shown interest.
