  • Profile of an assistant

    At the suggestion of one of the varsity coaches, I am going to do a series of articles on the assistant coaches of the various sports at Harrison County High School.
    The first coach is Fillies Basketball assistant Kim Furnish.  
    Kim is the youngest child of Jim and Teresa Furnish and a 2002 graduate of Harrison County High School.  
    She played basketball at Harrison County for Coach Mac Whitaker and started on both the 2000 and 2002 Regional Champion teams.  

  • Breds in Bracken tournament, lose to Lewis Co., rout Morgan

    The Harrison County Thorobreds are finishing 2010 by playing in a tournament in Bracken County.  
    The tournament began on Monday with the Breds facing the Lewis County Lions of the 16th region at 4:45 p.m.  
    The Lions brought a 5-4 record into the game with a line up that included eight seniors to face the inexperienced Thorobreds.
    It didn’t take long for the Lions to show their poise and senior leadership as they handled the Harrison County trap and press with little difficulty.

    This was the last game of the first day of the Paris-Bourbon County Holiday Classic held at Bourbon County High School.   
    The Fillies led at the end of the first quarter by one as both teams had trouble getting going.  

  • New Year’s resolutions or how others should improve

    2010 is nearing its end and a lot of people at the end of any year make a list of changes or improvements that they hope to make for the New Year.
    I am going to list some sports related changes that I would like to see along with some others that I would like to make for me and others.
    The first change I would like to see is all sports to get rid of challenges of the officials’ calls by coaches.
