  • Fillies District champs with 52-46 win over Lady Devils

    “Our defense was the key,” said Coach Kim Furnish after the Fillies’ thrilling win over Robertson County. “We knew Saner would hit shots; our goal was to take Mitchell out of the game by denying her drive. Maddie K and Whitney took two huge charges to set the tone and deny her the paint.”
    The defensive affect on the game was apparent from the outset as the Fillies slowed the Lady Devils offense to a crawl holding them to only two points in the first period.  

  • Breds lose lead and district title as Wildcats win 73-71

  • Track team again competes in indoor meet at Mason Co.

    The field was large due to teams wanting to prepare for the indoor state meet which will also be held at Mason County. This meet will be on Saturday, March 14.  
    “It was important to have this meet today,” said Coach Danny Simpson. “It sharpens our veterans and gives invaluable experience to our freshmen. We didn’t have our best performances but we did pretty well.”

  • School spirit, some show it, some don’t

    The just-completed 38th District Tournament put on display the polar opposites of school spirit.  
    On one end of the pole is Pendleton County and on the other end Harrison County.
    People display their emotions in very different ways and everyone is not the person who takes the school banner and runs from one end of the floor to the other or gets emotional when his/her team makes a great play.  
    I have never been one to yell much during a game or show great emotion for a play as I usually clap and that is about it.
