The Lady Cougar basketball program was set to open their season Wednesday against Floyd County, but a series of injuries to the Lady Buffaloes Tuesday during their season opener against Radford left the varsity team unable to compete. The JV squad, however, was up to the task.

 

Pulaski County scored early and often, jumping out to a quick 22-5 lead by the end of the first quarter. Aggressive defense and hustling offense that was highlighted by unselfish passing and good shot selection aided the Lady Cougar throughout the game.

 

Floyd County got their feet under them more in the second period, outscoring the Lady Cougars 14-11 to leave the Lady Cougars up 33-19 at the halftime break.

 

While coach Shaun Lawson, making his junior varsity debut, cycled players from the bench to the floor throughout the contest to keep fresh legs and a sharp attack in the game.

 

Pulaski County outscored Floyd 24-19 in the third to lead 57-38 heading into the final period. Floyd County continued to fight, outscoring the Lady Cougar 11-10 in the fourth, but Pulaski County earned the 67-49 victory to open the season.

 

Hannah Keefer lead the Lady Cougars with a team and game high 20 points. Andi Ratcliff backed her up with 13 and Reese Nolan added 12. Morgan Vest was the fourth Lady Cougar in double digits with 10 points.

 

Kenzlee Jones added five points. Destiny Duncan scored three points. Morgan Price and Caro- line Bishop added two points each in the win.

 

Floyd County was led by Mackenzie Thompson with 17 points. Karlie Bond added 10 points and Madison Slusher chipped in seven in the loss.

 

The schedule for all Pulaski County teams is still up in the air as they continue to face scheduling problems brought on by COVID-19
