  • Fillies win streak at seven after five wins last week

    It appears that the Harrison County Fillies have put it together at the right time as they won five times last week to take their current win streak to seven straight.
    By winning 10 of their last 12 games, the Fillies have evened their record at 14-14 with one week left before district play begins.  
    The week began with a doubleheader at Shirley Field with Mason County on Senior Night.
    Mason County came into the game with a deceptive 3-20 record. Deceptive because the Lady Royals have played most teams close and have lost some very tight games.

  • Donkeyball draws crowd despite other activities

    I would be remiss if I didn’t comment on the donkey basketball game held at the middle school on Friday, May 6.  
    Erin Butler did an outstanding job organizing and putting the event together.  It was well run and very well attended even though there was a softball game, baseball game and a tennis match going on at the same time.  
    Marshall’s Tractor Supply was the winning team though there was not a Marshall on a donkey.  They ran rough shod (donkey term) over Southern States in the championship game.
