  • New rule change for basketball;...

    The new rules for basketball that are supposed to make the game more offensive-friendly could be a good thing, but also has its bad points too.  
    I will agree wholeheartedly that the game has gotten too rough from the college game down to the high school version.  
    It probably is rough in the pros, too, but I don’t watch that so I cannot swear to it.  
    The game has gotten so a hand-checking defender could ride the offensive player out of bounds before a foul would be called on him or her.  

  • Jenkins named Fillies Athlete...

    Harrison County senior Marly Jenkins was voted by her peers as the Fillies’ Athlete of the Month for November last week.  
    The athlete of the month program, which is the brainchild of Fillies basketball coach Kim Furnish, names a top girls’ athlete each month in voting by the female athletes only.  
    The female athletes honor one of their own in this secret ballot to promote athletics among the girls of Harrison County High School.
    Jenkins played soccer for the Fillies since the seventh grade dedicating her young life to the game.  

  • Varsity and Middle School squads...

    The Harrison County Varsity and Middle School cheerleading squads made a clean sweep of the team honors Saturday in the 10th Region Cheer Competition held in Nicholas County High School.  
    The varsity did an outstanding routine along with a great floor exercise that earned them first place in the 10th Region competition.  
    This advances the varsity cheerleaders to the state championships which will be held on Dec. 14 at the All Tech Arena.  

  • Fillies to use deep bench,...

    Coach Kim Furnish doesn’t come right out and say it nor does she even hint at it.  But deep down you got to believe that she thinks this could be the year that the Fillies will be a force in the 10th Region.

  • Thorobreds face tough schedule...

    Despite losing 35 points per game from the 2012-13 squad the Harrison County Thorobreds are returning a veteran group to attack the 2013-14 schedule.  
    Gone are guards Scott Kendall, Jordan Stubbs and Tommy Vallandingham, forwards Jordan Martin and Elijah Gross and center Tyler Martin from the 38th District Champs of one year ago.  
    Along with them they took a lot of game experience with many points and rebounds.  
    Coach Larry Kendall has some experienced players to take their spots but they must be molded into a cohesive unit.  

  • Fillies scrimmage two quality...

    The Harrison County Fillies begin regular season play at Calvary Christian on Dec. 2  so playing tough competition is a must for Coach Kim Furnish’s squad.  
    The Fillies traveled to Lexington Saturday to take on Scott High in the Tates Creek scrimmage.  
    Coach Rhonda Klette returns everyone from last year’s team that defeated the Fillies 68-55 last year plus a couple of seniors who have joined the squad.
