Owensboro Catholic Lady Aces Face Ryle in State Semis
It was an exciting Friday afternoon when the Owensboro Catholic Lady Aces beat Scott County 62-51 to advance to the KHSAA Girls Sweet Sixteen for the first time ever.
It was a huge upset over the 34-1 (now 34-2) Cardinals, considered favorites over the Lady Aces coming into the game.
The girls had plenty of time to celebrate (which is to say, if I'm thinking like a coach, not MUCH time) after the win.
But now they get ready for something no other Lady Aces team has ever done...play in a state semi-final game.
I look forward to seeing if Hannah McKay can match her outstanding double-double performance from Friday when the Aces take on Ryle.
It'll be another tough test for the Lady Aces as the 4th-seeded Lady Raiders come into this semi-final match at 31-5.
The game begins at 5:30PM. GO ACES!
