LEDBETTER, KY-- Marshall County junior Cayce Hendrickson shot an even par 72 at Drake Creek Golf Club on Monday, to win the 1st Region girls golf tournament.

Hendrickson led last year's 1st Region and state champion Anna Hack by two shots heading into the final hole. Hack needed a long birdie putt to possibly force a playoff, but it went just left of the hole. Hendrickson would three-putt for bogey on 18, holding on to beat Hack by one shot.

Calloway County won 1st Region team title, shooting a total of 301, earning them a trip to the state tournament. Marshall County also earned a trip to state, coming in second, with a team score of 320.
