Grayson Sophomore Ella Robinson spikes the ball during the Lady Cougars straight-set win over Butler County Thursday.


The Grayson County High School Girls Volleyball team wrapped up another good week in the courts with a comfortable 25-14, 25-21, 25-15 district win over Butler County.

The Lady Cougars went a perfect 3-0 and are now 10-4 in the season with a district record of 3-1. They started Tuesday beating Muhlenberg County in two sets (25-12,28-26) and followed it up Wednesday dominating Frederick Fraize (25-11,25-11).

Grayson capped off the week crushing the Lady Bears in front of their home crowd. Something they have rarely done this season since Thursday was only their fourth game at home, which makes their great run to start even more impressive.

“We've been working really hard so far this season. It's been hard on the girls, but we are getting things done,” said Grayson's head volleyball coach, Rebecca Meredith. “We still have little time to go before district starts, but I really feel we have the team to win it this year.”

They showcased that beating Butler County pretty handily in two sets, fighting off their strong scoring run in the second and getting a clean straight set win.

It was a tight affair early with both teams exchanging leads until the game tied at 13-13. The Lady Cougars went on a eight-point scoring run and carried the lead from their. They finished out the first set 25-14, ending the set on a 12-1 scoring run.

Butler County bounced back in the second set getting the first five points to start, but it wouldn't last long. The Lady Cougars tied the game at six a couple minutes later and went on to build a three-point lead for themselves. From there, the game went back and forth until Butler finally got the game level at 17. Grayson responded by going on an 8-4 run down the stretch to win the second set 25-21.

The third set started close like the first two, but Grayson found the separation early, being up more than five points the rest of the way after being tied 8-8. They finished out the set 25-15, beating their district rival for the second time this season.

“The other people in the other district better watch out for us,” said Meredith. “Honestly, we are going to be fighting this year.”

Boys Soccer:

The Grayson County High School boys soccer team finally turned things around last weekend, getting their first and second wins of the season on the same day.

After starting the season losing four straight games and getting outscored 24-2, the Cougars are finally finding their touch. They started beating down Campbellsville 4-0 and used that momentum to beat Russellville 3-1 in the second game.

Junior Wyatt Schultz scored three of the goals against Campbellsville with Cody Watkins chipping in the fourth. Sophomore Matthew Haycraft was the orchestrator of all the goals, finishing the game with four assist.

Haycraft did his scoring in the second game. He finished with a double in the 3-1 win, with Watkins again finding himself in the score sheet with the third.

Brady Whobrey was solid in goal during both games. He finished with nine saves and just one goal allowed in between both wins.

The Cougars are now 2-4 in the season and despite the rough start of the year there is plenty of time for the team to finish with a winning record.


The Golf team only had one tournament this week finishing second in the Tri-match versus Meade and Bullitt East at Doe Valley Country Club. Sophia Elmore and Keegan Sharp were the star performers on the day, shooting a 44 and a 45 respectively.

Girls Soccer:

The Girls soccer team didn't see any action this past week but they are still sitting strong. They are currently on a five-game winning streak with a season record at 6-3 and are still undefeated in the district.
