    The race was run on a slower course which winds through the woods and beside a creek in a picturesque setting that the runners enjoy.

    Last week was an extremely busy one for the Harrison County Fillies volleyball team, but one that saw them win six of eight matches and take third place in the Dink Scott Tournament in Mt. Sterling.
    The Villa Madonna Blue Lightning were guests of the Fillies on Thursday night and, according to Coach Bill Faulkner, his girls may have been too gracious as hosts.

    Playing on a wet field for the first time this season, the Thorobreds’ goal keeper, Christian Carey, slipped coming out of goal to field a ball and the visiting team kicked one in for the game’s only point.
