  • Harrison County’s tennis team greets many new players

    Harrison County graduated the No. 1 Fillies doubles team in Polly Whalen and Jacqueline Young, the No. 1 Thorobreds singles player in Ross Smith and one half of the Breds No. 1 doubles team in Kalen Woosley.  The other half of that No. 1 doubles team, junior Ben McDonald, moved away so there are several holes to fill for second-year coach Kara Mattox.  
    However, given these circumstances, the cupboard is far from bare.
