Lauren Hatter of Casey County and Don Story of Lincoln County have been voted the 12th Region player and coach of the year by the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches.
Hatter is averaging 13.8 points and 4.1 assists (both team highs) along with 4.3 rebounds for Casey, which plays Johnson Central on Wednesday in the Girls Sweet Sixteen. Her award comes with an automatic invitation to the Kentucky all-star tryouts next month.
