Crowley's Ridge Academy earned its first-ever girls' state basketball tournament berth thanks to a 39-28 victory over conference rival Armorel on Friday night in the Class 1A regional tournament at Izard County Consolidated.

CRA advanced to Saturday night's regional finals, where it lost to top-seeded Calico Rock 64-38. Two Lawrence County residents, Ashlyn Abbott and Audrey Jane Hicks, are members of the CRA team.

In CRA's win over Armorel, Abbott was the Lady Falcons' second-highest scorer with 10 points. Abbott scored seven points in the loss to Calico Rock, again finishing as the second-highest score for CRA.

Both Abbott and Hicks were among the five CRA players who were named to the All-Region team.

The Lady Falcons will play the Region 1 runner-up, Alpena, at 1 p.m. Thursday in the state tournament.
