  • Well done by all schools

    In this day of protests where no one seems to be able to get along, we had a very successful 38th District tournament.  
    The crowds were large and, for the most part, polite and respectful.  
    I do not understand why fans from a school want to sit in the other school’s section but that is a minor issue and only a few do it. The student sections, while near the floor and boisterous, were in control except for a few bull---- yells.

    The Harrison County Fillies put forth a gallant defensive effort Thursday but experience over-came as Nicholas County edged the Fillies 34-25 to win the 38th District Championship.  
    While Harrison County played good defense the senior laden Lady Jackets under Coach Greg Letcher showed poise beyond their years.  Nicholas County, while not shooting well from the field, worked the ball for good shots often passing up a medium range attempts for something better.
