Clay County

Coach James Burchell's Lady Tigers finished 25-10 last season and are favored to capture the 13th Region crown again this year.  6-1 Jr. center Whitney Belle Jackson is effective in the paint with power moves to the basket.  5-10 Sr. Jordan Phillips (11 ppg) is another inside scoring threat.  The Lady Tigers also have talent and experience in the backcourt with 5-9 Sr. Danielle Fox, 5-7 Jr. Kayla Smith, and 5-6 So. Alisha Mitchell

Christian Academy of Louisville

Coach Don Rice's Lady Centurions finished 25-5 last season and will be another strong contender for the 7th Region title.  6-2 Sr. guard Antonita Slaughter is a skilled player with excellent range on her jump shot.  5-10 Sr. guard Allison Karst and 5-11 Sr. forward Anna Hart are good returning veterans.  5-8 Fr. guard China Dow is strong, athletic, penetrates well, and can hit the jump shot.  Coach Rice has a nice mix of seasoned veterans and promising freshmen who should have an impact. 

Owensboro Catholic

Coach Ray Zuberer's Lady Aces finished 21-10 last season, graduated six seniors but still has enough talent returning to be very competitive in the 3rd Region wars this season.  5-11 Fr. Becca Greenwell is a versatile swing player who is a versatile scorer (18.2 ppg) and a good rebounder.  5-6 Sr. forward Kaley Robertson and 5-6 Sr. Kaitlyn Elder are returning veterans who will be expected to be key contributors this season.  Robertson added 10.4 ppg last season.  Coach Zuberer had several underclassmen who will be expected to contribute this season. 

Sacred Heart Academy

North Hardin

Coach James Slaven's Lady Trojans finished 24-6 last season but suffered a set-back over the summer when 5-4 Jr. guard RaeChaun Edwards moved to Virginia.  The Lady Trojans still have a lot of talent returning to challenge for the 5th Region crown.  5-11 Sr. forward Destiny Bramblett averaged 17 ppg and 11 rpg last season.  5-5 Sr. point guard Jennifer Smiley is a versatile performer who averaged 12 ppg last season.  5-8 Fr. forward Chanel Roberts averaged 8 ppg and 6 rpg.  5-3 Sr. guard Lexi Taft is also a key returnee. 

Mercy Academy

Coach Mark Evans' Mercy Jaguars finished 19-8 last season and the Jaguars will as usual contend for the 7th Region title.  5-9 Sr. guard Therese Montano is a multi-talented guard who is a versatile scorer and a tireless worker.  5-8 Sr. Malisa Cruz is a hard-nosed swing player with good range on her shot.  The Jaguars also have a very talented guard trio in 5-5 Jr. Lauren Faris, 5-8 Jr. Juliann Miller, and 5-8 Sr. Ellen Sholtes.  Mercy will always give a big effort and if they can stay healthy and rebound the ball could be an extremely dangerous foe.

Nelson County

Coach Kelly Wood's Lady Cardinals finished 27-6 last season and should be a factor in the 5th Region again this year.  6-3 Sr. center Samantha Drake is a mobile inside performer who puts up big numbers in scoring and rebounding.  5-8 Sr. guard Lacy Hagan is an excellent perimeter shooter and 5-5 Sr. Emily Hogan is also a key returnee.
