The Lady Hawks jumped out to a 14-2 lead and held on for a 53-46 victory over the Washington County Commanderettes in the first round of the region tournament Tuesday night.
"As I've stated several times, we're not always pretty to watch, but we find a way to win," LaRue County coach Travis Wootton said. "I don't know how well we were playing, but we got out to a lead and I think we relaxed a little bit. I think we got caught up in the moment. But this was good to get this under our belt."
