       In a tournament that began on July 2 and wrapped up on July 8, the Harrison County 12 year old all stars won three and lost two to finish in third place overall in the District 3 Little League competition. The tournament, which was held in Anderson County, featured teams from Powell County, Richmond, Winchester, Mercer County and the host Anderson County squad as well as the Harrison County team.

       The team was coached by Steve Slucher who used two assistants from the Auto Systems team, Roger Fryman and Wilbur Fowler,  to aid him.

    Brad Allison, a 1992 graduate of Harrison County High School,  has been named athletic director to replace the retired Lee Kendall effective July 1, 2011. Allison was assistant athletic director during Kendall’s term.
    “Lee was like a mentor to me,” said Allison. “Many of the plans I have are continuations of what he did.”
    Allison plans to be an accessible figure at the Harrison County sports activities.

  • Fillies soccer anticipating...

    The Harrison County Fillies soccer team graduated seven seniors from last season’s district runner-up and regional semifinalist, yet Coach Kim Jenkins is optimistic. Although the Fillies lost three of five defenders including the keeper to graduation, Jenkins believes she has the players in the wings to step in and compete.

  • Instead of pennies we need...

    I didn’t go to the inaugural Sprint Race at the Kentucky Speedway Saturday night though I am a fan of NASCAR.   I wish I could have gone even though I wouldn’t have liked the traffic even if it went smoothly and especially not the way it was on this race day. Traffic around the two NASCAR events that I have personally attended was bad though not impossible or horrendous like it must have been Saturday. I have been to Bristol and Talladega but we went early and stayed late each time so the traffic though heavy was bearable.

  • Youthful exuberance is coach...

    Last week my article was about the spoiled people of professional sports and how a millionaire doesn’t need a union to help them have a fair wage or a good working place.  This week I am writing about the players who really love the game and how they express the true joy of playing it.
    My youngest grandson, Ian, played for the Mets in Coach Pitch this year so I attended at least half of his games. The older two, Hayden and Riley, played for Auto Systems in Little League so I split my time between the two leagues.
