Cougars scratch CC

The Pulaski County Lady Cougars came away with a huge 48-41 victory over the Carroll County Cavaliers Monday night.
Discipline from the free throw line played a big roll in the Cougar win as they were 11 of 14 in the fourth quarter to put the game away. The Cavaliers meanwhile managed a measly 6 for 19 from the “gimme” line.
The Cougars maintained the lead for the entire game, extending it to eight points, but having it chipped away by the Cavaliers to keep it a close contest.
Though the Lady Cougars had a sloppy shooting night sophomore Kasey Holcomb stepped up her game connecting for 12 points in the victory.
“Kasey came off the bench and did a great job at point for us. She only had one turnover which really helped the team,” Head Coach Jason Grubb commented.
Crashing the boards and playing strong defense for the Cougars was senior Carlyn Samuelson with an intimidating nine rebounds and five points.
“It was a long day for the girls. It being the first day back and no games over the break, plus an hour-long bus ride. We did a nice job of executing tonight. We’re getting better everyday,” said Coach Grubb.

The Cougars are 5-4 for the season, winning five of their last seven games. The Cougars split with Radford and William Fleming giving those teams their only loss of the season, and proving that the Lady Cougars can compete with strong teams in the district.
The Cougars travel to Salem on Thursday to take on school rival Salem Spartans. It will be the first River Ridge District game for the Cougars and will be a tough challenge with Salem’s record at 6-2 for the season so far.
JV tip off is at 6 p.m. and varsity begins at 7:30 p.m.

Pulaski County (48)
Kasey Holcomb 12, Hannah Davidson 8, Daisy Ball 8, Carlyn Samuelson 5, Raiven Patterson 4, Nikki Shay 4, Emma Reigert 4, Ariel Long 2, Brittany Lawson 1.
