  • Honoring the greats

    Sunday night I was sitting in a hotel room in Berlin, Ohio, watching ESPN.  
    The ceremony from Yankee Stadium retiring Derek Jeter’s number two jersey was on before the game between the Yankees and Houston. Ironically, it was only the day before that the Harrison County Thorobreds baseball program honored three former players in the “Fence of Fame” ceremony.  
    Both ceremonies started me to think again about honoring people who have meant a great deal to Harrison County in both education and sports.

    For the second straight season the championship match of the Bluegrass Conference came down to Royal Springs and Harrison County.  
    Monday’s match in Grant County, like last year, came down to penalty kicks after regular time and the overtime had been played,  and like last year the Harrison County Middle School Fillies were victorious, winning with three penalty kicks to two for Royal Springs.

    The Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds track teams finished the regular season strong last week with a good performance at Scott County and victories in an eight-team meet on the Hilltop.
    Tuesday, on a cool and windy afternoon, the Fillies were fifth of twelve teams in the Scott County All Comers meet.
