The Logan County High School girls and boys basketball teams split a doubleheader against Franklin-Simpson last week.

On Tuesday, Feb. 9, the Lady Cougars beat the Lady Cats 60-42, while the Cougars fell 68-51 to Franklin-Simpson.

It was the final District 13 game of the regular season for both teams.

The Lady Cougars won their game thanks to 18 points from Torrie Pollard – half of which came off of three 3-pointers. Rachel Barnett led LCHS with eight rebounds and also added 12 points of her own and Taleia Mason scored 11 points.

The Lady Cougars finish the district slate with a 5-1 record, good enough to give them the top overall seed in next week’s district tournament. They will take on fourth seeded Todd County Central in the first round.

Logan County then played on Saturday in Owensboro in the Autism Awareness Classic against Grayson County. The Lady Cougars fell 61-46 to make their overall record 18-7 on the year.

The Lady Cougars have a chance to finish out the regular season with 20 wins as they have two games left on the schedule this week. They play at South Warren on Tuesday and then end the regular season at home against Greenwood on Thursday.

The Logan County boys’ team fell 68-51 to Franklin-Simpson last week, making their regular season district record 2-4. As the No. 3 seed, the Cougars will play either Franklin-Simpson or Russellville in the first round. Both the Wildcats and Panthers finished 5-1 in District 13.

In the loss against the Wildcats, LCHS was led in scoring by Dalton Furlow, who had 13 points. Lorenzo Garcia had a team-high five rounds to go along with his 10 points. Noah Whittinghill and Austin Rayno each scored nine points apiece.

Logan County will be back in action Tuesday against Rossview at home and then will close out the regular season on Thursday night at home against Greenwood.
