FRANKFORT - Preseason expectations for Lexington Christian Academy among boys’ high school basketball coaches were mixed.

Statewide, the Eagles were ranked eighth overall and third among 11th Region teams. LCA didn’t finish as a preseason top-five program in a vote of coaches only in its region.

Of course, the only expectations that matter at the end of the day were those harbored by the Eagles. While they lost two talented big men in Austin Hall and Carter Hendricksen, they brought back one of the best players to ever roam its halls in Kyle Rode and several other seniors who’ve had a hand in getting the Eagles to the last three All “A” Classic state tournaments.

A fourth trip is in their crosshairs: LCA knocked off Frankfort, 57-44 on the road in the semifinals of the 11th Region All “A” Classic tournament. The Eagles, ranked 23rd overall in the most recent Cantrall Ratings, will play either Model or Sayre, who met in the second semifinal Thursday night, at 8 p.m. Saturday.
