Floyd County High School’s Lady Buffs captured the Three Rivers District title Friday night with a 77-35 demolishing of Glenvar at Christiansburg High School.

Senior Krista Cox led the scoring with 23 points, 21 of them from seven three-point shots.  The Lady Buffs jumped out to a 8-0 lead right after the opening tipoff and never looked back.

The team, ranked number one in the state in their division, head into the regionals next week as heavy favorites.

  1. You have to admit it was pretty humorous to see the Glenvar coach coming out to get the “Coach of the Year” award after getting beaten by Floyd for the third time. It must have been tough to get your butt beat by 40 points and then have to accept an award everyone knew was a joke.
    I do feel for Krista…she was undoubtably the POY but politics and “stats” are used to deny the most deserving player. Hopefully she will make some noise in the region and state and get the recognition she deserves.
    Thanks for the coverage Doug….we all appreciate it.

  2. Well said, Big D. Cox was a most gracious recipient for her place on the All-District team even minus the POY title after yet another amazing performance behind the three-pt. line. I am very proud of her and the rest of the Lady Buffs– any of whom could easily start for any team in our district– for being such a class act. Kudos to the girls not only for kicking butt on the court, but for so obviously caring more about team’s ultimate goal than the political “titles” the district chose. Can’t wait to cheer you on Wednesday, Lady Buffs!
