  • Volleyball evens record at 2-2 with win over Montgomery County

    Thursday night’s volleyball matches left Coach Bill Faulkner a little out of sorts after George Rogers Clark beat the Harrison County Fillies in two straight games to win the varsity match 2-0. 

    The Fillies dropped the first set 20-25, but had a 23-20 lead in the second only to lose by 23-25 to end the match. 

    “I was disappointed that we had a three-point lead and lost it,” said Faulkner. “We will work on this as a team.”

  • Golfers have matches with Nicholas, Pendleton counties

    Zach Hernandez added a 52 and Peyton Browning a 54 for the Breds’ JV. Chris George led Nicholas with a 49.

  • Sorry not the hardest word after all

    In 1958, Connie Francis sang, “Who’s Sorry Now?” and later, Brenda Lee, Bo Diddley, The Platters and The Delfonics all sang, “I’m Sorry.”

    In today’s society, saying “I’m sorry” is the new “How are you?”

    We’ve come to expect it — demand it — of our fallen sports figures, politicians and celebrities, after which we, the public and all the talking heads on TV and radio, dissect each apology to judge whether we think the apologizer is sincere enough for our satisfaction.
