Battling it out as one of the commonwealth’s finest, the seventh grade Lebanon Middle School Patriots played in Kentucky Basketball Academy’s state tournament over the weekend. Though they did not make it to the final four, they put up one heck of a fight.
According to KBA’s schedule, the Patriots opened tournament play Feb. 1 by demolishing Meece Middle School out of Somerset, 47-12. From there, they defeated Bryan Station Middle School, 52-38.
On Feb. 2., the Patriots advanced to play four other schools.
