  • Fillies win first victory at Williamstown

    Coach Kim Furnish said after Wednesday’s game that she had finally got the demon off her back.  
    Maybe it was a Lady Demon because Furnish and her Harrison County Fillies picked up their first win of the season over the Lady Demons of Williamstown, 70-56, Wednesday.  
    The win improved the Fillies to 1-6 and dropped the freshman-laden Lady Demons to 3-6 for the season.

  • Thorobreds split games in Stop DWI Classic in Covington

    The Harrison County Thorobreds played some of their better basketball of the young season as they lost a tight game on Friday to Covington Holmes and then won a cliff hanger on Saturday with Russell.
    Friday saw the Breds lose to the host school, Holmes, 82-73, after a hard-fought game that saw Harrison County give one of the state’s top teams all they wanted for the contest.  
    The Breds took an early lead in the game and led late into the first period before Holmes went on an 11-point run to take a 16-10 lead to a 16-21 deficit.  

  • Let’s have a Happy New Year and a home court advantage

    When the Fillies traveled to Williamstown last Wednesday and won their first game of the year, I was reminded of what a good home court advantage can do for a high school team.  
    While it is true that the Lady Demons lost this home game, what little crowd that was in attendance supporting them made its presence known.
    When the Fillies went to the locker room for final instructions before the game, the Williamstown band practiced a 30-second song and a one minute ditty while the teams were in the locker room.  

  • Score 'N' More
  • Fillies drop three more at Pendleton, change line up

    The effort that the Harrison County Fillies put forth in Friday’s 56-52 loss to Covington Latin was all Coach Kim Furnish could stand.  
    “We came home and practiced for two hours and I found some girls who wanted to compete for us,” she noted. “I had to make some changes after Friday night’s effort.”  
    The Fillies started from the gate slowly in the 5 p.m. start in the first game of the Edwardo’s Classic at Pendleton County High School.

  • Follow your instinct. . .

    If there was anything that I came to understand more profoundly this year it would have to be the power of instinct: mine, our animals and the forces of ideologies of which I agree and disagree.
    I reread my year end column from 2011, which reminded me of where I was 12 months ago; it helps me better appreciate where I am today.
    It seems we didn’t do too badly, after all, and it’s all because both Andy and I recognize the power of instinct.
