  • What could have been or what...

    I just returned from New York City and Waverly, Tennessee, for two completely different reasons and while traveling came up with some good ideas for a column.  
    Unfortunately, at my advanced age, I forgot most of them but the last idea is still fresh in my mind.  
    The New York trip was to accompany the HCHS Class of 2017 on their Senior Trip, which was a very enjoyable venture.  
    The trip was well planned and executed and we were fortunate to have a great guide in the city and a very good bus driver in the city.

    Last week, the Harrison County Thorobreds baseball team traveled to the Pigeon Forge, TN area to participate in the 7th Annual Smokey Mountain invitational.  
    Despite an early forecast for inclement weather all week, the Breds were able to play three of the four games that were scheduled.

    The Harrison County Fillies traveled to Waverly, Tennessee  on Friday to play five games in two days in a 12-team tournament with some outstanding talent.  
    The Fillies were unable to hit with any regularity in the games that they lost as they were no-hit in two of the games.
    Friday’s early evening game saw the Fillies face the host team, the Waverly Central Tigers, and drop a 7-0 verdict.

    The defending Tenth Region champs, the Campbell County Camels, looked every bit like a contender again as they defeated the Harrison County Thorobreds, 10-3, Monday at Campbell County.  At least, they looked like champions the way the Breds helped them out with six errors and four walks.

    A first inning two-run home run by Bailey Conley set the stage for a 10-1 Harrison County Fillies win over Pendleton County’s Lady Cats, Monday on Shirley Field.  
    For this 38th District game the Fillies totaled 17 hits with Conley and Olivia Partin each smashing out three.  Partin also had three RBI’s to lead the Fillies.

    An 8-team all-comers track meet on Thursday, March 30, was cut short due to high winds and lightning.
    Twelve of the 18 events were completed in the meet, although not all competitors were able to finish their three attempts in several field events.

  • Losing is a good thing

    I don’t believe for a minute that actually losing does a team any good.  
    I believe that you can teach from a win as well as a loss and a win is just better.
    The loss that I was referencing is UConn’s loss to Mississippi State in the Women’s NCAA Tournament.  
    UConn had won 111 straight games and was the odds-on favorite to again win the NCAA tournament title. It took Mississippi State an overtime and a last-second shot to get the job done but they got the job done.

    The Harrison County Middle School Fillies traveled to Georgetown and whipped the Scott Middle squad 8-0 in a Bluegrass Conference match.  
    Gab Hatterick scored after just five minutes on an unassisted blast past the home goal keeper.  Five minutes later Laurel McDaniel scored her first goal to make the score 2-0 and followed with her second goal right before the half for a 3-0 half time advantage.
