Bringing up uneasy memories of March 1, 1997, Pendleton County High School is hosting the 38th District tournament with a championship game scheduled on a day of heavy rains falling, swelling creeks over their banks and  closing road. Too many residents are getting an uncomfortable feeling of repeating that day.

Dontaie Allen was selected the 10th Region Co-Player of the Year by the 10th Region Boys Basketball Coaches Association. Coach Keaton Belcher indicated that Allen has had a special season and a big reason why the Wildcats have had a successful season. The junior is averaging over 30 points per game and 10 rebounds per game.

After a very successful season that saw the Wildcats go 22-7 and consistently regarded as one of the top four teams in the 10th Region, Wildcat Head Coach Keaton Belcher was chosen by the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches as the 10th Region Coach of the Year.

The Ladycats fell 60-30 to Nicholas County in the opening round of the 38th District Tournament. Pendleton County finishes the season 5-22.

Sophomore Shelby Turner led the Cats in scoring with 11 points. Sophomore Alexis Eckart finished with five points and eight rebounds.

Lastly on the action agenda was a set of criteria for the superintendent search along with a charge to the search committee which the board approved.  

Kentucky State Police and the Pendleton County Sheriff's Office had requested the aid of the public in finding Thomas Hartig.

He has active felony warrants for Rape Third Degree, Custodial Interference, Unlawful Transaction w/Minor First Degree Illegal Controlled Substance, U/16 YOA and persistent felony offender second degree.
