LEXINGTON, Ky. (WFIE) - The Henderson County girls basketball team saw its historic season come to a close on Saturday, as the Lady Colonels ended their postseason run in the KHSAA State Semifinals, losing 50-33 to Marshall County.

“Proud of our kids to get to the semifinals, the state final four - something they’ll never forget, something I’ll never forget,” Henderson County head coach Jeff Haile said. “This has been a great group to work with. One of the best group of kids I’ve had to work with since I’ve been coaching, and I’m not talking about just talent. I’m talking about as young ladies and young student-athletes.”
“I’m going to remember a lot about this season,” Wurth said. “This team means everything to me. I mean down the road, I’ll always look back on this, so it’s just a memory I’ll never forget.”
Henderson County ends its season with a 20-5 record.
