The Grayson County Cougars are finding their groove at the right time with the postseason just weeks away, going 3-1 in this past week.

They started it off with a Jaxon Higdon game, winning three right at the buzzer, to pick up a 33-30 victory over rivals Edmonson County on homecoming night last Friday.

They followed that big momentous win by defeating Holy Cross (Louisville) 54-41 the next day at the Sportscenter Shootout at Owensboro. On Monday the Cougars had a bit of a slip, losing 55-51 to McLean County on the road, but they quickly recovered, edging out Meade County 56-52 Tuesday night.

In every game this week they found different ways to get their results, with different players stepping up along the way, showcasing the team's depth.

Versus Edmonson County, it was the defense that carried the team, allowing the Cougars to grab the win, scoring just 33 points. Jaxon Higdon was the game-winning hero with the three at the buzzer during his 12 point performance, and Nolan Shartzer led the team scoring a team-high 13 points.

The offense came back after the homecoming victory for Grayson averaging 54 points in the next three games. In the victory over Holy Cross, it was Q'Daryius McHenry who stepped up next to Shartzer, scoring 21 and 20 points respectively.

The duo continued their scoring form versus McLean, with Shartzer scoring a game-high 18 points and McHenry 17, but the team ultimately fell four points short.

Shartzer finished off the week's action with his best performance yet, scoring a game-high 24 points in the overtime win over Meade to get the ship back in the right direction.

The Cougars are now 12-14 in the season and still have a chance to finish over .500 with three games left on the schedule. That possibility seemed out of reach for the Cougars two weeks ago but they have gone 5-1 in their last six games after starting the year 7-13.

Girls Basketball

The Lady Cougars losing streak didn't stop this week, dropping both their home games and extending the losing streak to six.

They fell in agonizing fashion 32-31 to rivals Edmonson County Friday and losing continued Monday falling 53-46 to Daviess County putting them at 10-14 in the season.

Kenzie Renfrow and Laura Vincent were scoring leaders versus the Lady Cats getting 13 and nine points respectively. Versus Daviess Vincent put in another 18 and Ella Robinson chipped in another 14 but Lady Cougars have yet to find their winning formula again.
