The 2021 state champion Highlands Basketball team is teaming up with the Fort Thomas Farmers Market to host a signing event on Wednesday, May 12 from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

A commemorate poster created by local photographer, Allen Ramsey, will be available to purchase for $20. The team will sign the poster for $30 or individuals can have personal items signed for $10. 

The proceeds for the event will be going to fund state championship rings for the team. 

The Highlands Bluebirds boys basketball team (29-4 overall), coached by Kevin Listerman, won its first ever Kentucky state basketball championship on April 3. 

2000 Memorial Parkway. 

“It’s beyond description,” Kevin Listerman, Highlands Head Coach, told Fort Thomas Matters after the championship win. 

“I’m so proud of these guys for the way our seniors led this team all the way long. We stayed focused. We stayed simple and just made play after play after play. I’m so blessed to be here. I told the kids I played 39.3 seconds in the state tournament as a freshman (at Covington Catholic in 1992 in a first-round loss to Lexington Catholic). To be able to come back as a coach, have them have this unbelievable experience and to just sit back and watch it is absolutely amazing and humbling.”

Highlands broke the record for most three-pointers made in a state tournament. 

Sam Vinson was the tournament's MVP. All-Tournament team members were Luke Muller and Zach Barth. 

Highlands graduates four seniors off this team. Those four are Vinson, Muller, Bryson Cody and Daniel Buchanan. Muller will play golf at Northern Kentucky University next year.
Highlands finished state runner-up in 1997 and 1924.
