For the first time since 2007, the KDS DAR 8th grade Lady Patriots basketball team are the Marshall County Champions. The tournament culminated January 18th with the ladies’ victory over the Arab Lady Knights. This year’s Marshall County Middle School Basketball Tournament was hosted by KDS, with the finals being played in the Olivia P. and Noel A. Burkey Center Gymnasium.

Coach Glenn Ledbetter said, “I am proud of how the girls have improved this season.” Their final Middle School season ended with 17 wins and 5 losses.

Coach Ledbetter said, “They could have let their losses take them down each time, but these girls came back with a positive attitude and wanted more.”

He said these girls cheered each other on whether they were on the bench or playing on the court, and he was impressed with how much they showed their team spirit and pumped up the team. “I could not have asked for a better team this year,” Ledbetter said.
