Lady Aces win All 'A' regional title

Jan. 9—CALHOUN — Hailee Johnson scored 23 points with four 3-pointers, Aubrey Randolph posted a career-best 22 points with six steals, and Owensboro Catholic's defense forced 29 turnovers en route to an 85-43 win over Hancock County in the girls' 3rd Region All "A" Classic championship game Monday night at McLean County High School.

The win cemented the second All "A" regional title in three seasons for the No. 5 Lady Aces (11-2), who advance to the state tournament later this month in Corbin.
