FROM STAFF REPORTSFebruary 11, 2014 

THOMASVILLE, Ga. -- The Hardaway Lady Hawks clinched a berth in the Class AAAAA state tournament as well as the Region 1 semifinals with a 55-47 victory over Thomas County Central on Tuesday night.

Tyra Lacy scored 18 points and Taylor Keith scored 13 to lead the Lady Hawks.

Hardaway's opponent in Friday night's region semifinals will be determined by the outcome of Tuesday night's other first-round game, Harris County at Bainbridge, as the region re-seeds the teams heading into the semifinals.

A Bainbridge win would have Hardaway playing Northside.

But if Harris County won, Hardaway would play Lee County.
