Kennedale Lady Kats
The Kennedale Lady Kats (7-9) are #3 which they were in the previous poll. The girl’s poll is as follows: #1 Glen Rose (17-0), #2 Peaster (10-4), #3 Kennedale (7-9), #4 Lipan (14-2), #5 Argyle Liberty Christian (13-4), #6 Decatur (11-3), #7 Brock (13-3), #8 Nolan Catholic (14-5), #9 Grapevine Faith, and #10 tied with Godley (12-4) and FW Southwest Christian (4-6).
State-wide the Lady Kats are ranked #20 in Class 4A by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches (TABC).
After an arduous pre-district season, the Lady Kats will open District 10/4A play at home against Ferris (3-11) tonight with varsity set to play at 6:30 pm. Friday evening, it will be another district game as the Kennedale hit the road to play Venus (4-11).
Correction made in this article. Kennedale’s basketball district is District 10/4A, not 6/4A.
