Floyd County High School senior Lindsey Thompson (center) plays through the pain of a re-injured knee during the Lady Buff’s defeat of George Wythe, 81-68 , in the first round of the Region C, Division 2 tournament Monday night at FCHS.

Thompson missed the first games of the system because of knee surgery and reinjured the knee last week in the team’s loss to Glenvar in the Three Rivers District Tournament and did not start Monday night. But in her sporadic appearances on court she scored 13 points. Others stepped up to the challenge for a game that was closer than the final score showed. Brittany Bourne and Molly Brown led with 17 points each, followed by Brittany Avancini with 15.

Floyd Couny faces Grayson County in the semi-final at James River High School on Thursday.
