    Eighth grade Colts improve record
    The Harrison County Middle School Colts opened the game with a couple of different presses and raced out to a 23-0 lead as they defeated Elkhorn, 54-33, Thursday on the Hilltop.  
    “Everyone contributed tonight in some way,” praised Coach Glenn Lonaker. “We got scoring from 10 of the 13 players in the ball game.”  
    Lonaker still reminded the team that they still have some things to work on such as blocking out and moving the ball down the floor but overall he was pleased.

  • Red hot Camels shoot past Breds 85-58 Friday

    The team that many think is the team to beat in the 10th Region is defending champion Campbell County.  
    Friday night did nothing to change anyone’s thinking as the Camels beat Harrison County 85-58 in Mason County.  
    The opening game of the Mike Murphy Classic for the Breds saw the Campbell County team come out of the locker room on fire from the field shooting 62.5 percent in the first quarter.  

  • Lady Rebels smother listless Fillies 57-39

    Boone County Lady Rebels’ coach, Nell Fookes, is in her 30th year as the mentor.  
    During those 30 years, her teams have been known for solid, error-free offense and a tight defense.  
    The 2014-15 edition, despite her claims to the contrary, appears to be out of the same mold.  
    On Friday night on the Hilltop, the Lady Rebels got off to a quick start taking an 8-0 lead.  
    The Fillies battled back to cut the lead to 10-6 at the end of the period but the die was set for the game.
