Twelve top-qualifying Henry County Middle School students will advance to the Governor's Cup Regional academic competition this month, after earning high marks earlier in various areas.
The team finished 7-3 this year, taking second place overall in January's district competition. They'll have the home court advantage when they face 13 other teams, Feb. 16 and 18 at HCMS, for the regional title.
"This has been a rebuilding year for us," co-coach Kathy Gregory said. "We're facing really strong northern Kentucky teams."
