The Greyhounds rallied for two victories last weekend and are still in the hunt for a top seed from their subregion heading into the final week of the regular season.

Jones County’s boys are still struggling at times, but they are finding ways to win and enter the stretch drive at 11-9 overall and 2-2 in subregion play, having won six of their last eight games and three in a row.

They downed region foe Houston County 58-47 after trailing by 10 points in the opening quarter on Friday, and they edged Baldwin 57-55 in overtime on Saturday in a non-region game after giving up a lead late in regulation when they had trouble making foul shots. Both games were at home.

The Greyhounds were to host Twiggs County in a non-region game Tuesday night before hosting Northside-Warner Robins (15-6, 4-1) on Friday and visiting Warner Robins (13-13, 3-1) next Tuesday.

The Greyhounds would have to sweep their final two subregion games and hope for a little help from Houston County to overtake the Demons and finish tied with the Eagles for the top spot in the standings.

Jones County will host the Region 2-AAAAA Tournament this year, Feb. 12-16.
