To the editor:
It is an honor to follow Mike Reitz as head coach of the Thorobred basketball program. I’m optimistic about the upcoming basketball season. We recently completed a youth basketball camp and we entertained a total of 91 future Thorobred campers during the week. Community involvement enhanced our week.
Hometown Pharmacy outfitted campers with a T- shirt and basketball. Movie Warehouse donated a free movie rental, Leono’s donated personal pizza, and all campers received a ticket for free admission to our first home boy’s varsity basketball game (Nov. 30 vs. Saint Henry High School).
In addition to those businesses mentioned above, a thank-you also goes out to McDonald’s, sponsor of the “ICE CREAM CONE” shot and to Chase Jewelers for the donation of University of Kentucky memorabilia.
My gratitude is also expressed to our community, who encouraged their children and grandchildren to attend camp. Relationships were formed between elementary-aged children and our high school players. High school players were “coaches/mentors” to the young ones.
The efforts of long time supporters of Harrison County basketball are also appreciated (John Dawson, Joe Nichols, Larry White, Rodney Persinger, Katie Kendall) and the 2012-13 Breds Coaching Staff: Jamie Case, Jason Crisp and Stephen Moses.
My congratulations to Coach Mike Reitz with his recent retirement as boys’ head coach at Harrison County High School. Mike is the winningest coach in Harrison County basketball history and has been a quality teacher, head coach, and (most importantly) person. We plan to continue his legacy this fall.
