Kentucky Royals 7th Girls…. Jaguar Classic Champions and Nothin But Net champions …. won the same day


Upon winning the tournament championship at Nothin But Net on Sunday, May 17, one of the Royals 7th Girls fans was heard to say “4 games, 2 championships, 1 day …. priceless”.  The Royals had just completed an undefeated sweep of the Jaguar Classic in Louisville and then traveled back to Cincinnati to complete a perfect 14-0 season playing up in the 8th grade division at Nothin but Net.




The weekend of May 1-3 saw the 7th Grade Kentucky Royals Girls win the Tennessee Miracle Classic in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.  They went undefeated in pool play and then through the seeded bracket to win the NCAA Certified Exposure Event against national caliber teams.




On Sunday, April 12, 2015, they defeated the Shining Stars and Legacy (ranked #11 nationally) to win their 3rd state championship in four years (they did not participate in the state tournament in 2014).  They will now represent the Commonwealth of Kentucky in the national AAU tournament.  They will continue to play a schedule of AAU tournaments and in the Nothin But Net 8th grade division in preparation for the National AAU tournament.  In 2013 they were the National Division 1 Runner-up.

 The 2015 Kentucky Division 1 7th grade girls State Champions Kentucky Royals are: Kendall Wingler, Mallory Holbrook, Fee Arce, Coach Macke, Taylor Watson, Maylasia Chames, Jasmine Simpson, Jillian Hayes, Brooklyn Miles, Lexi Taylor and Piper Macke.

*Ranked #2 Nationally Division 1 (2014)
*Finished as runner-up in the AAU National Girls basketball tournament – Division 1
*The KY Royals 7th grade girls have won 486 games in 4 years (as of March 1, 2015), have won dozens of local and regional tournaments and have competed at the highest level nationally, including finishing as the National Division 1 Runner Up in 2013.   They played in local boys’ AAU leagues or up one or two girl grade divisions, with great success, including winning their last 72 consecutive games and 6 league championships against the top boys AAU teams in northern Kentucky (they discontinued playing in boys’ leagues when the boys changed to a 29.5″ ball).    Most of the girls on the team maintain an A average in the classroom.   They take part in their own team fundraising events, learning that they have to not only work hard on the court… but also in life to be able to afford to play the sport.
