    The Harrison County Fillies golf team hit the ground running the past week as they began the season with two large tournaments.
    They began by hosting the nine-team Central Kentucky Conference tournament on Friday at the Cynthiana Country Club. Freshmen Sarah Holland and Sarah Durbin led the way for the Fillies as they shot very well for the first time out.  Holland finished sixth among the 52 golfers, shooting 90 for the 18 holes.

    In the article that I wrote about football rules, there are a couple of changes/additions that I need to make. There is some disagreement on rule 3-5-10d as to whether or not it is a penalty if a player takes his helmet off on his own in the dead ball interval. Some believe that it is not, but the way it is written, until someone clarifies it to me and then I’m not sure I would tell my players not to take it off.

    Though he never played football in Harrison County Will Thomas Collins lived in Harrison County during his middle school years.  
    “So what?” you might ask since many of the readers of the Democrat may not be familiar with Will Thomas.  
    Will Thomas Collins and his family lived in Harrison County from 1999 to 2010 before his father, Jon Collins, became an assistant football coach at Breathitt County High School.

  • Football rolls on with camp...

    “This is one way to develop a feeling of closeness and work as a team,” said Coach Jimmy Carr when asked about the upcoming team camp.  “The players will devote a lot of time to playing and hitting harder and doing things with and for their teammates.”
    The team camp begins Thursday at 11 a.m. and goes through Sunday at 1 p.m..  
    “We will close down Sunday with an early practice then a short church service before going to our homes,” noted Carr.
