  • Are my grandchildren me made over?

    Before I get to my topic, I want to say congratulations to Dillon Pulliam.  
    On Saturday, playing against LaRue County, Dillon set the single game freshman scoring record for Harrison County High School when he scored 29 points to lead the Thorobreds.  
    Pulliam made nine three point shots, which tied the school record and another field goal to total his points.   The previous freshman record was held by Tony Talbott, who scored 22 points in a game as a first year player. The three point co-record holder is Kris Reitz.

    The loss dropped the season record to 12-13 for the Breds while the Royals improved to 13-12. The cold shooting Breds took a 3-0 lead on Dillon Pulliam’s three pointer and played the game tight until half way through the first period when the Royals took the lead at 7-6 and never trailed again.
