For the second straight year, the 10th Region held a girls' basketball media day for all teams involved.

After lunch was catered by Lee's and opening statements were made, each team had a chance to introduce themselves with their coach and a couple of their top players.

Media members from around the region attended the event held at the Mason County High School cafeteria and asked questions to each team's coach and players that stood in front of the crowd.

Some of the talking points ranged from what each team had coming back, up and coming players to look out for, the state of their program and what their expectations were for the upcoming 2017-18 season, set to begin on November 27.

Some keys from each team that attended goes as follows:

Augusta-the Lady Panthers return all but two players, as they feel more comfortable with coach Robin Kelsch and his system.

Bishop Brossart-Kevin Bundy enters his second season as the Lady 'Stangs are in search of getting back to 10th Region All "A" dominance. Brossart will field a young team with just two seniors.

Bourbon County-the Lady Colonels lost their two starting post players from a season ago and will have to adjust their style of play, trying to feature a more up-tempo team.

Bracken County-the Lady Bears enter the season with their fourth coach in as many years, with Sam Elsbernd, but they're not looking back on that, rather looking forward to building the future of the program.

Calvary Christian-Calvary comes off a winning season, as they search for back-to-back winning seasons for the first time in a girls' program throughout the school's athletic programs in 12 years. Having everyone back from a season ago will help.

Campbell County-the Lady Camels are described with one word...loaded. They currently have two Division I signees in Taylor Clos (NKU) and Mackenzie Schwarber (Morehead State), they also added Alexis Stapleton, who transferred over from Scott and McKinlee Miller back from injury. A brutal schedule will have them battle tested.

George Rogers Clark-the defending 10th Region champs remain loaded with a deep squad. Coach Robbie Graham and the Lady Cardinals will be favored to win the 10th Region once again as they try to get back to the state tournament.

Harrison County-the Fillies return 1,000-point scorer Madison Kellione, who enters just her junior season. The key for them will be what surrounds her and if they can put it together to knock off Nicholas County in the 38th District.

Mason County-the Lady Royals look to replace a big senior class as Brad Cox enters his third season with not as much pressure to win the Region as the previous two years. No doubt about it, that's still the Lady Royals goal as they'll host the regional tournament at The Fieldhouse.
