Lincoln headed back to the state tournament as the Cougars beat the Braxton County Eagles, 49-45 in tonight's regional. It took a true team effort to do so as Brynne Williams tallied 12 points, Katie Martin added 10 and Hannah Ferris chipped in 9.
Jocelyn Abraham, Lilly Ware and Peyton Smith all had 14 for the Eagles.
The No. 4 seeded Cougars will play No. 5 Frankfort in the opening round of the state tournament next Thursday at 9 p.m.
