Previous to the Lady ‘Stangs game versus Bethlehem-Bardstown a year ago in the “A” State
tournament, in my pre-game interview with Coach Kevin Buddy, we both realized that with a nucleus of
sophomores, that team was probably not ready for a prime-time, go-for-the-gold run through the “A”
State Tournament. We were right. Despite their finest efforts and a furious second half rally, the girls
came up short.
Since that night, the team has taken the experience gained, fed and watered it daily, and now return to
McBrayer Arena as seasoned veterans, with a trip over this track. They bring with them an 18-1 win-loss
record, the experience of playing into the finals of the sixteen team Berea Holiday Classic, a match with
Anderson County, who would be favored to win this “A” State tournament, and a recent win over
George Rogers Clark. Stirring in all of those factors this team returns to Richmond with credentials to
cut down the nets on Sunday afternoon.
Owensboro Catholic, the defending All “A” State champs got a tough draw. They will have to get past
our Lady ’Stangs in order to repeat. This game has more the feel of a semi-finals or finals contest, than
an opening round game.
Junior Marie Kiefer, who has been reported at anywhere from 6’1” to 6’4” as was the case on
Winchester radio Saturday, has certainly been the single most impactful player on both ends of the
court. Much like her mother’s attributes back in the 80’s, Marie’s length causes our opponents to have
to adjust their shots, possession after possession on the defensive end, where she, like her mom,
blocks shot after opponent’s shots, and is our “Chairlady of the Boards.” At the other end of the floor
she is not only the team’s primary scoring threat, but possesses a lightning quick inside-out transition
pass, that sets up our three-point shooters.
Veterans Jordyn Rowe, Rosie Jump, Emma Steffen, Madison Crowe, and Olivia McGrath provide
stability which leads to consistency, and sophomores Lauren Macht and Madison Parker do not wear
underclassman labels while between the lines. The loss of the team’s lone senior, Lily Cropenbaker, to
a season ending ACL injury, meant Parker was inserted into the starting lineup, although Cropenbaker
does still provide leadership to the underclassmen as they continue to mature.
From Day One of his head coaching tenure on the girls’ side, Coach Bundy has incorporated the
man-to-man defensive techniques employed by their boys team counterparts, and this has allowed
them to keep their opponents in range throughout the season, providing statewide-leading numbers in
both points allowed, and margin of victory.
If all nineteen of their previous encounters have merely been practice for the big event unfolding this
week at EKU, then this team should arrive with confidence and be in position to “make some noise” on
a game-to-game basis.
The Lady Stangs take on Owensboro Catholic at 5pm, Wednesday evening at McBrayer Arena on the
campus of Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, Kentucky. TIckets can be purchased at the door
for $10 each. The live broadcast of the game will air at 4:45pm.

After hours of preparation for Lexington Christian, miles of film watched, and a trip to LCA to witness
the 11th Region "A" Finals, all of that went into the trash can when the Panthers hit a shot ahead of the
buzzer to knock off the 11th Region "A" favorites.
Certainly our 15-2 Mustangs, on a 14 game win streak should dominate a 10-15 Frankfort team, but
there are no sure things in this game, as has been pointed out to us quite clearly by Calvary Christian,
who incidentally, defeated Scott Tuesday night.
High school games are often about match-ups, and I hope that ours are better than theirs Thursday
morning. Game time is 10am with the live broadcast beginning at 9:40am. Tickets are $10 at the door.
