  • Wrestlers gain needed experience at Johnson Central Duals

    Mike Aldridge,
    Sports Writer

    “We had a big day Saturday with two teams entered,” said Harrison County wrestling coach Luke Tucker.  “We did a split squad with the team in order to get the most matches for each wrestler.  With a young team, I’m more concerned about getting time on the mat than winning duals.”

    HCMS Eighth Grade Volleyball Still
    Undefeated at 7-0

    After the Dec. 5 match with Scott County, the Harrison County Middle School eighth grade volleyball girls remained undefeated with a 7-0 record.  
    The eighth grade Fillies won in three sets over Scott County 21-19, 17-21, and 15-7
    The seventh grade Fillies also defeated Scott County but they did so in straight sets 21-14 and 21-5.  The win improved the seventh grade record to 5-2 for the season.  

  • It is harder than you think

    Seeing this title one might think that I am going to write about how difficult it is to write a weekly article while being careful not to repeat topics too many times.  No, that is not what I am writing about this week.  
    What is harder than you think is keeping score for a high school basketball game.  This year I am the Fillies road game score keeper.  Laura (Kendall) Ashbrook does the job for home games which, while being the same work, is more difficult because on the Hilltop she is the official scorer.
