For Williamstown head girls' basketball coach Mark Wilhoit, Monday's 57-32 setback at Sayre was one for the ages.

"I have never been so disappointed. We just went through the motions," said Wilhoit, who watched his team fall to 1-3 on the season heading into Friday's road clash with cross-town rival Grant County.

Sayre jumped out to a 31-2 halftime advantage, holding the Lady Demons without a field goal.

"I will take full responsibility for the team not being ready to play. I knew as soon as they walked on the floor they were not mentally prepared to compete and should have addressed it then. This will be the last time that will happen," Wilhoit said.

Williamstown shot 4-of-16 from the free throw line in the loss.

"The second half, we came out with some fire in our bellies after the embarrassment of scoring two points in the first quarter," Wilhoit said.

The lone highlight for Williamstown was the play of Jaclyn Stith.

She recorded her third straight double-double.

The game scoring output came on the heels of Stith being named the North Central Kentucky Conference Player-of-the-Week following her performances last week.

She had 26 points, 10 rebounds and 6 steals in Williamstown's win over Augusta.

"It is a great honor for her to be named NCKC Player of the Week. Once she realizes her potential, the sky is the limit for her. She is one of the most gifted athletes in the NCKC as well as the region. We will continue working with her to get the "take the game over" attitude. She has the ability to do that," Wilhoit said.
