HCHS indoor track

Two weeks ago. several Harrison County track team members participated in an indoor meet at Mason County.

Three Harrison County athletes placed in their respective events at the big meet that included several teams from Kentucky and Ohio.

Catherine Darnell was 4th in the high jump, clearing 4-4, Danni Kemplin was 8th in the 55 meter hurdles with a time of 10.45 seconds and Caleb Reeder was 8th in the 55 meter hurdles with a time of 9.36 seconds.

“It was a good experience for us, but we are still behind where we need to be, and that is due mainly to the bad weather we had a few weeks ago,” said HCHS girls track coach Danny Simpson. “Coach Walker (boys coach Robert Walker) and I were pleased with the progress we’ve made in a short amount of time.”

HCHS will continue their indoor season this weekend with the Mason Dixon games, the Indoor State Championships, at Broadbent Arena in Louisville.
