Magoffin County's Morgan Connelley, left, hugged teammate Nichole Fletcher following their win Monday in the 15th Region final at the Eastern Kentucky Exposition Center in Pikeville. "In a way, I almost feel guilty to be going to play basketball when so many people are hurting at home," Fletcher said later. "Part of me, I feel like I should be there to help. Yet, we're so excited to be going to state."
