You may not know it but Kennedale High School features two top 10 teams in 3A basketball. Kennedale does have a reputation for strong, competitive basketball in both boys? and girls? basketball and this year is no exception.
The KHS Ladycats started the year as #1 and are currently ranked #2 with a record of 12-2. The Wildcats started the year at #10 and are ranked #8 with a record of 11-1. Both the girls and boys teams have played a tough early season schedule against strong 3A, 4A and 5A teams and have walked away with victories.
The Kennedale Ladycats have played the season with several injuries. Last week in a tournament in Granbury, the Kats played with only 6 players on Friday night and 7 players on Saturday.
The Ladycats have this week off to get healthy before finishing the semester at Krum on Tuesday, Dec. 18 and at Stephenville on Friday, Dec 21.
