Lincoln Nichols hits the opening drive to his senior night Thursday at the Lafayette Golf Course.

Lincoln Nichols hits the opening drive to his senior night Thursday at the Lafayette Golf Course.


Nathan Keys and Lincoln Nichols played their last holes as members of the Grayson County Golf team this week leading the team to a win over Breckinridge County, 162-198, Thursday.

It was a perfect performance to cap off their Senior night. Keys and Nichols were the only two seniors on the young team and have been leaders through all their successes this season.

“They have represented the Grayson County Golf team and Grayson County High School really well in their years on the team,” said Grayson Head Coach Tony Embry.

Jaxon Higdon helped the senior day festivities coming up with an even-par performance. The girls team ended up tied Breckinridge at 159.

The senior night win was the second of the week after Grayson won a three-team match over Bullitt East and Bardstown County at Heritage Hill Golf Course, 171-187-191, on Wednesday.

Girls Soccer:

The Lady Cougars had a rough time on the soccer field this week going 1-3 with two gruesome blowouts.

They started by losing 10-1 to Meade County on the road. The Grayson defense that had been strong all season completely broke down; they had allowed just 13 goals before the 10-goal disastrous performance.

The leaky defense continued in their next game out, this time losing 8-0 to Apollo at home.

Grayson goalkeeper Laura Vincent had two great performances to help the barrage, coming up with 74 saves in the two games.

They responded to the bad performance by getting a 5-0 win over Monroe County Monday, but it was short-lived.

On Thursday, Grayson dropped a game 1-0 versus Brekinridge County, a team they had already beaten earlier in the year.

The Lady Cougars are now 7-6 in the season with a record of 3-3 in the region and 2-2 in the district.

Boys Soccer:

The Cougars were able to continue their good momentum from last week beating Barren County 5-1 Monday in the only game they had this week.

They started the season losing four straight and outscored 2-26, but Grayson is now sitting on a three-game winning streak. The team that was struggling to find goals has created 12 scores during the winning streak.

The hammering win puts the Cougars at 3-4 on the year and sets them up for a real chance to finish with a winning record, which was hard to think with the horrible start.


The Lady Cougar Volleyball team won their only game this week, squeaking out a (25-22, 25-19) win versus Ohio County on the road.

Grayson has been playing their best ball in recent weeks, currently sitting on a four-game winning streak, which is encouraging with tournament play beginning at the end of the month.

The team sits currently at 11-4 in the year, with a record of 8-3 in the region and 3-1 in the district.
