  • WHS girls’ fall to 1-2

    After a big win over West Jessamine to start their season, the Williamstown girls’ basketball team lost two straight games to Owen and Harrison counties.

    The Demons fell to Owen County in a physical game 65-56.

    “We ran across a hot player,” coach Mark Wilhoit said. “She scored 35 points. Overall, we shot the ball well, but we need to work on defense. Our defense was horrible. We opened up and let them drive and we were slow on our rotation. We’ve got a chance to be a real good team, but we’re not a good team right now.”
