The Lady Cougars tipped-off their season this week and they are already off to a great start.

Grayson beat John Hardin 69-56 Monday night in the home opener and followed it up Thursday night defeating Warren Central 73-70 in overtime on the road.

The season may have just started, but the 2-0 Lady Cougars are showing they are more than ready for the basketball season.

On Monday, it was the Rachel Snyder show. The junior forward took over the match getting a double-double with 25 points and 18 rebounds but she wasn't alone. Senior guard Kenzie Renfrow also finished with a double-double on that night getting 14 points and 10 boards. 10 different lady Cougars also got a point to please the home crowd.

On Thursday it was Renfrow who took center stage as Grayson picked up the overtime road victory over the Lady Dragons. She scored her career-high with 32 points and Snyder backed her up scoring 21 points herself.

Two games in the duo of Renfrow and Snyder have been the driving engine of the Lady Cougars' success averaging a combined 46 points a game.

Grayson will be looking to continue that trend the rest of the way. They return to action next Tuesday when they travel to face Meade County at 7 p.m.
