     The Harrison County wrestling team will open the 2017-18 season with the annual Rumble on the Hilltop this Saturday morning, beginning with weigh-ins at 9 a.m.  
    This is an individual bracketed tournament with every effort to separate returning state participants to assure top notch wrestling in the semi-finals and finals.

    The Harrison County Fillies with three players in double figure scoring and two with double figure rebounds rolled past Tates Creek Monday night in Lexington, 65-32. 
    The Fillies jumped out to a 19-9 first quarter lead as junior Madison Kellione scored 11 of her game high 23 in the opening stanza.  Both teams showed some first game jitters with 15 turnovers in the first period with the Lady Commodores committing nine of the miscues.

    Lexington Christian Academy’s team was highly thought of going into last night’s season opener on the Hilltop against the Harrison County Thorobreds.  The Eagles of Region Eleven did nothing to change that opinion as they defeated the Breds,  71-51.
    It wasn’t easy for three quarters as the Breds overcame their rebounding deficit and height disadvantage to stay within 10 points until late in the third period. 

  • Tori Watkins, sports in her blood

    Northern Kentucky University is very much in the minds of Harrison County sports fans these days.  
    Christian Carey just wrapped up an outstanding soccer career at the school.  Shelby Roberts is bowling for the NKU bowling team and of course, Camryn Whitaker continues to be the mastermind behind the Lady Norse basketball team as she coaches them through the perils of Division One basketball.

    Cynthiana’s Shon Walker was named Sunday to the 2018 class of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s Hall of Fame.  Walker joins 12 other inductees who will be formally honored with their induction on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at the Hilton hotel in Lexington.
    The 1992 Mr. Baseball award winner, Shon Walker set KHSAA single season records for home runs and runs scored which still stand 25 years later.  

  • Basketball galore

    Finally, there is basketball.  
    College football is still intriguing and bowl bids will be won, lost and decided this weekend which is exciting but finally high school basketball.  
    In fact, high school sports in general and even middle school volleyball has allowed me to be distracted from the national media barrage of who stood and who didn’t.
