Ladycats Basketball

Pressing, trapping, pounding the ball inside, shooting the three, slow it down, pick up the pace or many other choices are ways to win ball games.  But one guaranteed way to win a basketball game is to have every player who was in the game contribute at a high level.  Six players in double digits will win you a bunch of ball games.

And for the Ladycats versus Campbell it was the formula to defeat one of the best teams in the 10th Region. They were rated as high as 4th in the 10th Region according to the Cantrall Ratings.

McKayla Manor led the Ladycats with 13 points but five others were bunched right behind her.  Isabella Hall and Taylor McClanahan had 12 each, Bailey Wanstrath had 11, with Heather Jolley and Bradi Boden chalking up 10 each.

Seasons have valleys and peaks and teams that find success in the post season are the ones that grow stronger in the valleys that allows the peaks to be sustained longer.

The Ladycats are mostly definitely in one of their season’s valleys and have been hit hard by injuries.

Senior Bradi Boden has been hampered by an injured ankle over the past two weeks that has limited her playing time and effectiveness.

In the 85-46 loss to Mercer County on Friday night, Ashten Wolfe sprained her ankle.  Her 75 game streak of starting games was snapped in the Cats 55-44 loss to West Jessamine the next day.

Post Christmas, the Ladycats defeated Rowan County 37-32 in the first game of the Bourbon County Christmas Tournament. In the first game of the second game vs Lexington Catholic, a team that has won the state title twice, they held a 21-11 lead.  Everything looked good for the Cats as they wanted to make a statement that they were one of the best teams in the 10th Region.

Since that point, what has been reality is that the PC’s defense has fallen apart being outscored 191-131 in three straight losses. The three losses were Lexington Catholic game 67-51, Pendleton versus Bourbon Co 62-44 and Pendleton-Beechwood 62-57.

Wolfe leads Ladycats in second half rally past Fillies Print E-mail

Ashten Wolfe drives to the lane looking for the old fashion 3-point play.  She exploded for 12 second half points versus Harrison County to rally the Ladycats past the Fillies for second place in the Edwardo’s Christmas Classic.

In their holiday tournament, the Edwardo’s Christmas Classic, Pendleton had lost an opening game against Grant County in which they didn’t play their best basketball and had struggled with a Covington Latin team they had blown out earlier in the season.  Now, they trailed a Harrison County team 21-17 at the half.  A Fillies team that had a 1-8 record after losing to both Grant and Latin.  The Ladycats looked out of sorts and not sure what they needed to do.

McKayla Manor nailed four three-pointers and paced the Ladycats with 21 points in their 77-48 rout of Deming. PC stands 3-2 as they enter the holiday tournament season.

In a game that the Ladycats could have easily come in unmotivated and overlooking a depleted Deming squad, PC took care of business early and then coasted to a convincing 77-48 victory.

Deming whose team consists of two high schoolers and four middle schoolers must have felt scoring was coming from every player on the Ladycat team in the first half.

Heather Jolley scored 8 in the opening quarter but was joined by 4 teammates in the scoring column.

Ladycats stingy defense leads to twelve point victory Print E-mail

Senior Ladycats Bradi Boden and Heather Jolley trap the Villa Madonna player in their 53-41 victory in the Ladycat’ home opener.

The Ladycats hosted Villa Madonna Academy and the Future Ladycats Recreational League on Thursday night in their home opener but for Villa, PC didn’t play the gracious hosts.  Rather they were as stingy as Scrooge holding the Lightning to only ten points in the second and third quarter combined as they built a 19-point lead and coasted to a 53-41 victory.

After a physical battle in the Boys' Sweet 16 between eventual champ Trinity and Bullitt East, KHSAA Commissioner sent a directive to the officials throughout the state to clean the game up.  The Bluegrass Basketball Association (BBA) that serves the 10th Region got the message and the Ladycats opening game, a 55-52 loss to Bracken County, was a clear indication that a different game was being called this year and teams and coach's are going to have to adjust.
