    Fillies, Thorobreds draw Robertson County for district
    With District 38 not being seeded, the luck of the draw becomes an important part of the district tournament. This year, the Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds each drew the Black Devils of Robertson County.  
    The district tournament begins on Monday Feb. 22, with the Fillies (7-15) vs. the Lady Black Devils (3-13) playing at 6:30 p.m.  This game will be followed by the Breds (10-10) vs. the Black Devils (5-14) at 8 p.m.  

  • One of the good guys

    During the painful viewing of the Harrison County, Pendleton County doubleheader, I was lucky enough to share a little more than one half of a game talking with one of Harrison County’s greats.  
    Teddy Taylor came up to where I sit in the “Catholic” section and we talked about many and varied subjects.  
    I say “one of the best-ever” not just talking about Teddy’s great football playing days but how he is an all around good person.

    Barring any personal injury, Friday’s doubleheader with Pendleton County could not have gone worse for the Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds.

    The Thorobreds played what was perhaps their worst performance of the season in losing by a whopping 66-38 in the nightcap.
