The Grayson County High School Volleyball team improved to 4-2 in the early season this week, going 2-1 on the court.

The Lady Cougars got it started handling Glasgow in straight sets (25-13, 25-13, 25-20) Monday night. Ella Robinson again led the way with 12 kills and four aces while Kenzie Skaggs finished with a game high 10 aces and Alexis Hart led in assist with 21.

On Wednesday, it wasn't as smooth. The Lady Cougars found themselves in a five-set war versus Meade County and came up just two points short (22-25, 25-16, 16-25, 25-20, 16-14). The Lady Cougars edged out the first set and dominated the third to get in motion for the road win, but in the pressure sets they were outlasted by the Lady Waves.

Robinson had a strong showing in the losing effort, having 10 kills with seven blocks and five aces, and Bailey Richardson was the force ending with 10 digs.

Grayson quickly rebounded from the defeat, getting a 3-1 (25-17, 25-18, 18-25, 25-21) versus Trinity Thursday. The win keeps the Lady Cougars at a perfect 3-0 at home and pushes their record to 2-0 in the district.

Next up for Grayson is a trip to Frederick Fraize Tuesday for a 6:30 p.m. game.

The Lady Cougars went 1-1 on the soccer field this week, losing a 5-2 shoot out versus Christian County before going on a goal explosion versus Butler County 10-0 to pick up a mercy rule victory.

Versus Christian County Monday, Grayson had its moments with Gillian Johnston and Kandler Lindsey both scoring, but they never found a way to stop the Lady Colonels from creating chances. Laura Vincent finished with 25 saves on goal despite allowing five to go in.

On Thursday, it was a whole new script with the Lady Cougars kicking on all cylinders. In a district game, Ellie Evans and Johnston both scored four goals while Lindsey scored one before Vincent came in as a field player to get the winning goal.

Now Grayson sits at 2-2 in the season with the next game being a trip to Breckinridge County Monday at 5:30 p.m.
