Boys Basketball

The Cougars are officially heading into the playoffs on a roll.

After snapping into form last week, the Grayson County High School boys basketball team kept it going grinding out two hard fought wins this week. They went into a three-game losing streak in mid-January but have gone 7-1 to close out the regular season and put themselves at 14-14 on the season.

On Friday, they edged out Trinity (Whitesville ) 54-51 to pick their second win over the Raiders on Senior night and sweep the season series. They followed up the win by defeating Daviess County 55-52 on the road.

Senior Nolan Shartzer was Grayson's leading scorer this year, averaging 13.9 points per game with 5.3 rebounds this season, and he made sure to go out the right way. In his final appearance at Grayson's home floor, Shartzer scored 18 points and made sure to keep the Raiders at bay to pick up the three-point victory.

Q'Daryius McHenry also made sure to make it a celebratory affair, scoring a game-high 17 points with eight rebounds in the win.

The Cougars made sure to keep the good momentum going, traveling to Daviess County and holding on for a four-point overtime victory. Grayson had opened up a big lead in the first half, winning the first quarter 19-8 and taking a 15-point lead at the half, but they let it collapse.

Grayson then showed their playoff mentality to build themselves back up and get the victory in overtime. Spencer Sharp was the main reason for the win, exploding for 25 points with five three-pointers on the night. McHenry backed him up, getting 18 with 7 to put the Cougars right at .500 line to end the year.

Next up for Grayson is the postseason. The 12th district tournament starts this coming Tuesday and with the Cougars trending in the right direction, it couldn't come quicker. They will face Trinity a 6 p.m. at Edmonson County, who is hosting the tournament.

Grayson beat the Raiders 65-57 back on Jan. 25 and took the second game to start this week in the two games between the teams this year.

Girls Basketball

The Lady Cougars stopped their losing streak, but losing isn't over yet.

The Grayson County Girls basketball team snapped their six-game losing streak last Friday defeating Trinity (Whitesville) 56-49 but dropped to 11-15 on the year losing 59-45 to Muhlenberg County Monday.

Versus Trinity, Grayson found the perfect harmony on offense, getting five players in double figures. Kenzie Renfrow was the leading scorer with 13, Rachael Snyder got 12, Bailey Snyder finished with 11, and both Laura Vincent and Kaylee Masden chipped in 10.

The mojo quickly died down with the offense just mustering up 45 points their next time out. Renfrow and Vincent scored 13, but they couldn't get the team scoring along with them for them a second time running.

The Lady Cougars closed out the season going 1-7 in their last eight games, but luckily that win came against Trinity, who will be their opponent in the first round of the 12th district tournament. They will face the Lady Raiders at Edmonson County Monday at 7:45 p.m.
