    If it’s possible to be optimistic with just two starters returning and more than half of your roster freshman or younger, then that is a picture of Fillies coach Kim Furnish.  
    The fiery Furnish believes that she has, for the first time, a group of girls and a coaching staff that is as aggressive as she is when it comes to basketball.

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team won 12 straight matches without losing a set entering Wednesday’s contest with the Lady Mustangs of Bishop Brossart.
