BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Marshall County's Taylor Meadows scored 18 points Thursday night to lead the Lady Marshals to a 56-52 win over Letcher County Central in the first round of the KHSAA Girls Sweet 16 at Diddle Arena.
Marshall County (27-9) recovered from a four-point third quarter by out-scoring the Lady Cougars 21-12 in the fourth quarter. Letcher County Central's Kelah Eldridge had a chance to tie the game at 54 in the last minute, but her jump shot with 9 seconds left was no good.
Mariah McKenty added four rebounds, three assists and three steals for the Region 1 champion Lady Marshals.
Eldridge led the Region 14 champion Lady Cougars (29-6) with 17 points. Julie Cornett added 16 points and a game-high 18 rebounds.
