After at least a week of Hurricane Ike and ice storm make-up days, its finally graduation time in Owensboro. Its a landmark for every senior, but some Owensboro Catholic High Schoolers hope theyll be getting more than good grades; they want a state championship. The Owensboro Catholic High softball team is playing in this years state tournament. For the first time -- the girls have handled preparing for exams and the state tournament at the same time. Every other time the Lady Aces have made it to state -- the girls have had extra practices leading up to the games. Instead of spending extra time in the field this past week, the girls have been spending extra time in the classroom. The Lady Aces along with many other Kentucky teams have been in school for the past week because of days lost to wind and ice. Coach George Randolph says despite the added stress of exams, the girls are as good as ever. Principal Harold Staples says having to reorganize the school calendar after wind and ice forced the school to close was tough, but the students and teachers finished the year strong. He says the girls softball performance is evidence of that. Administrators coordinated tests and class so students could be out by 11:30 this morning. The tournament games began earlier -- so softball players will head to school Monday morning to finish up their exams.
