Jessica Rice Becomes Newest Lady Knight

4.17.2014 | Anderson Co High School -- Lawrenceburg, KY

Anderson Co High School's Women's Basketball team had a very strong 2013-14 season, losing a total of 5 times, but only to two Kentucky teams. They finished the year ranked by Maxpreps at #3 in Kentucky. Some of that success can be attributed to KCU's newest Lady Knight signee, Jessica Rice. Jessica is a 5'6" guard, and she is coming to Kentucky Christian to study Nursing.

Coach Ron Arnett shared the following about his newest commitment: "Jessica is the type of student we like to recruit as she is involved in her school and in her Church. She is a good student, ranking among the leaders in her senior class. She is very athletic and is a total team player. I expect her to develop into a very good player for us here at KCU. Coach Kays has done an outstanding job at Anderson County and he is to be commended for the teams he has coached. I appreciate his help in getting Jessica here and we are glad to have our second player from ACHS in recent years. Kelli Jo Young Hume was a super student-athlete for KCU and one of my all-time favorite kids to ever be here. I think Jessica has that type of future ahead of her, as well. We are extremely pleased that Jessica and her family want KCU to be their college of choice."
