Metcalfe County fans showed up to show support and cheer on their Lady Hornets during their 4th Region Tournament run. The Lady Hornets took the first-round win against the Monroe County Lady Falcons, 59-49.

Freshman Kassady London led Metcalfe with 24 points and 4 steals. Anna Grace Blythe pulled down 12 rebounds. The Lady Hornets then started to prepare for their semi-final game where they’d face 23-3 Franklin-Simpson.

Metcalfe had to try to mentally overcome a couple of tragic events the community faced toward the end of the week. During their post-game interview, both Seniors Braelyn Davis and Jaycie Harper, both summed it up in 3 powerfully combined words “We are family”.  Davis went on to add “When something happens it happens to us all”. Metcalfe is a very close-knit community that sticks together when tragedy strikes and backs their student athletes in all sport programs.

The Lady Hornets has had a season to be proud of. “Everyone wants to play in the championship game. We made a run we shouldn’t be disappointed in.”

Head Coach Greg Stephens told media after the game. With 24 turnovers, 7 missed free throws, shooting only 22.5% field goal, and only hitting 3 out of 19 3-point attempts, Franklin-Simpson just shut Metcalfe down. With the season over both Hornet and Lady Hornet Basketball will look to the 2022-23 season holds in store for the programs. For their 4th Region run Freshman Kassady London led the Lady Hornets with 31 total points. Senior Jaycie Harper had 16 points, Senior Braelyn Davis had 13 points, Aubrey Glass 11 points, and Anna Grace Blythe pulled down 19 rebounds to finish out the tournament.
