Last year, Northern Kentucky had 3 football teams make it to the State Finals (Beechwood, NewCath & Highlands). This year, the same 3 teams are looking to repeat their visit, and Simon Kenton is looking to join them. On Friday, December 5, these teams will play in the Kentucky State Semi-Finals for Class 1A, 2A, 5A and 6A.
