  • Lady Indians hold off Fillies, 65-54, in regional action

    The 2010-11 Fillies season ended Tuesday night as the Montgomery County Lady Indians defeated Harrison County 65-54 in the 10th Region Tournament.  
    The Fillies never led in the game, which had two ties in the first quarter, but it was far from being an easy night for the Lady Indians.  
    It was a night of runs as each team had scoring streaks that either kept the other team at bay or cut into a big lead to make a close game.

  • Heartbreak on the Hilltop, Wildcats 61, Breds 60

    Pendleton County led for one tenth of one second Friday night, but that was enough to defeat the Harrison County Thorobreds in the final game of the 38th District Tournament 61-60.  
    The Thorobreds dominated the game until the middle of the fourth quarter, leading by 20 points once in the final period before the inability to make free throws cost them the game.  
    Harrison County jumped out to a 5-0 lead on a Tyler Wagner basket and the first of Dillon Pulliam’s six three pointers.  

  • Not just hearing the word but doing the word

    If you ever want to see me panic, just call and say you’re coming over for a visit.
    On Sunday, a man my husband used to work with called to say he and his wife were in our area, about an hour away.
    He had asked, “Are you going to be home for a while?”
    That’s never a question I like to be asked unless it’s from the Publisher’s Clearing House people wanting my address so they can deliver a giant bazillion dollar check.

  • The sun will come up; and come on Tennessee, enough is enough

    If I am repeating myself from a time ago, please forgive me, but the boys’ district championship game begs for an old saying. When a person is young things seem bigger than they do when you look back on them after a few years.
    “Time heals all” and “The sun will come up tomorrow” are two old sayings that are frequently used after a particularly difficult time or event has taken place.
