Crays making way back for Cougars

(Continued)

ELNORA —



The Cougars were 10-3 following the Shakamak loss, but they struggled

down the stretch without Crays. The Cougars went 6-4 down the stretch,

which included a 55-43 sectional loss to Shoals on their way to a

disappointing 16-7 finish a year after Crays led the team to

semi-state. Dalrymple said obviously the team is better with Crays out

there, but last year the Cougars got a taste of what life is like

without Crays on the floor.



“We’ve had other guys that had to step up,” Dalrymple said. “We’ve had

other guys step up all summer, Nick didn’t play all summer either. We

probably played 18-20 games this summer, and he played in two of them.

We’re hoping that we are deeper, that other kids have taken on more of

a leadership role. As we plug him back in that can only help us.”

Doctors have told Crays he should be back to full strength a full 12

months after the surgery. Dalrymple and Crays hope this bodes well for

the Cougars postseason prospects.



“Coach and I were talking, we could have the best teams to come

through North Daviess in a while,” Crays said. “If something were to

happen and my knees were sore on double weekends, and say I have to

sit one game and play the other one, and pick the more important one

to us, our record could suffer. We look to be going full strength once

we get into February and March.”
