  • The right place and the right message

    Saturday night’s Harrison County Football Alumni Association Hall of Fame Banquet was a smashing success.  
    What I am going to write is not meant as a slight to any other banquet, location for a banquet or any other football coaching staff.  This is only to say that in my opinion the Saturday affair was almost perfectly done.
    The Field House is the right place for a sports banquet of any kind.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds replaced the annual Maroon/White scrimmage with a special practice last Friday.

    The Harrison County Fillies soccer team got off to a rough start Saturday when they lost a scrimmage at Pendleton County to Holy Cross of Covington, 3-1.  
    The loss wasn’t the rough part though. Learning that senior Taylor Landrum will be out for the biggest part of the season with ACL surgery was certainly a blow to the squad.  
    Amelia Bolin, who was last season’s leader in assists and goals scored, also sat out the scrimmage with an injured knee.
