During two games this weekend, the top-ranked Cards improved their record to 17-1. In Paris on Friday night, they defeated the Greyhounds (4-12) by a 96-47 score. Sam Parrish led the way with 22 points, as

Trent Edwards once more had a team-high 8 rebounds. Just one night later, they were victorious over Bryan Station 88-59. Jerone Morton scored 21 points against the Defenders (8-8), with Edwards and Stanley Smothers tying with a team high 7 rebounds.

On Tuesday and Friday of this week, the Cards will take on Bourbon County (4-12) and Montgomery County (5-11), respectively. They beat both opponents earlier this year. On Sunday, they’ll take on Great Crossing (13-4) in a game that’s sure to draw some fanfare.

GRC Girls Basketball
In a pair of games this week, the Lady Cards were able to build their record to 17-1. In a defensive battle against the Paris Lady Hounds (12-5), they came out on top 51-24 behind Brianna Byars’ team-leading 15 points and 6 rebounds from both Ciara Byars and Tyra Flowers.

Also, they were able to take down Bardstown (12-8) by an impressive 73-49 score. While Ciara Byars led the way with 19 points and Kennedy Stamper had 17 of hoer own, Byars was also able to deliver 6 rebounds.

In a trio of games this week, they’ll take on Bourbon County (4-13) in a Tuesday matchup as well as Montgomery County (12-7) on Thursday. Like the Boys’ team, they were able to defeat both earlier this season, although neither team is one to be taken lightly.
