Trigg County is hoping the toughest part of their 2004-05 schedule has them prepared for the All-A Classic Second Region Tournament that begins Monday at sites across the region.

The Lady Wildcats (4-9) will play University Heights (1-7) in the region quarterfinals Monday at 7 p.m. at Wildcat Gym.

The other first round games have Livingston Central (3-7) at Crittenden County (6-9); Fort Campbell (4-8) at Lyon County (10-4); and Webster County (9-5) at Dawson Springs (5-6).

Monday’s game will be the first time Trigg and UHA will have met this year, with the Lady Blazers appearing on Trigg’s schedule twice more after the tournament.

Trigg swept three games from UHA last year.

"It’s really a good matchup for us, because we’re competitive with all three teams in the upper bracket," Lady Wildcat head coach Amy Breckel said.

A win over UHA would advance Trigg to the semifinals and a contest with the Livingston/Crittenden winner Jan. 27 at Lyon County.

Trigg County lost to Crittenden County 52-47 in overtime Dec. 17 and dropped a 55-44 decision to Livingston Central Jan. 4.

"We’re obviously going to have to take care of the basketball and cut down on turnovers no matter who we play," Breckel said.

The Lady Wildcats will enter the tournament off the toughest stretch of the schedule.

Trigg dropped a 58-36 game to Caldwell County Jan. 10, followed by a 67-35 loss to Lyon County Jan. 14.

Over the weekend, Trigg was beaten 90-14 by Lafayette in the Martin Luther King Classic in Lexington, and Thursday, they host Webster County in a game rescheduled from December 7.

The record of those four teams is 37-21.

Webster County is the defending All-A champion, winning the title last year after rejoining the All-A for the first time in nine years.

The championship game is scheduled for Jan. 29 at 6 p.m. at Lyon County.
