The Lady Cougar JV won back to back games for the first time this season in league games with Thomas Jefferson and Mitchell last week.
Heritage got a well rounded scoring effort in a 40-13 win over Thomas Jefferson in a home game on Tuesday.
The Lady Cougars put some distance between themselves and the Gryphons early when they came out in the first quarter and turned up the defensive pressure.
Heritage led 26-8 at the half and was never under any serious threat from the Lady Gryphons which were held to just two points in both the second and fourth quarters by the ball hawking Lady Cougar defense.
Haley Crain led the scoring for Heritage with 13 points while Jessica Laws added 9 and Faith Woody and Korey Robinson netted eight points apiece.
Things were a bit tougher in a road trip to Mitchell on Friday night where the two cross county rivals battled for four quarters in the Western Highlands Conference match-up.
The two teams traded baskets for much of the first half but the Lady Cougars were able to pull ahead 21-14 at the break following two free throws by Allie Tabor.
The Lady Cougars got their first double digit lead late in the third quarter when Kiersten Thompson nailed a three pointer. Heritage maintained that lead until the end, coming away with a 48-37 victory.
Madi Thompson scored 8 of her game high 14 points in the second half to pace the Lady Cougar scoring while Jessica Laws contributed 10 points and Korey Robinson chipped in 8.
The Heritage JV boys had a scare at Mitchell on Friday where the game came down to the wire.
Heritage (9-3, 5-0 WHC) took an early seven point lead over the Mountaineers before Mitchell picked up the defensive pressure and trimmed the lead back to one at the end of the first quarter. The Cougars led 25-22 at the half and were able to hang on for a 41-40 win.
