Today's Sports

  • Mike’s Minute

    Friday morning while taking the Princess to school along with Ian and Riley, I drove past Commissioner Billy Grayson in the city parking lot next to the City Hall Gym.  
    He invited me into the gym to see how the work was coming along and discuss for a few minutes the meeting held on Tuesday.  
    It was my idea to discuss Tuesday as Billy was not pushing this issue, but after reading the Democrat report on the meeting I was curious as to his take on the meeting.  

  • McCarty, Robles and Moore help...

    Harrison County Middle School sixth grader Matthew McCarty set the early pace in the 2012 Region 8 archery tournament with a score of 287, but it was his unflappable performance in a pressure-packed tiebreaker shoot-off that helped propel him to the Region 8 overall male champion.  
    In the process, he also led all male shooters in the elementary division to capture that title as well. Shooting against an Augusta Independent sophomore, McCarty drilled the 5-arrow playoff to outshoot his opponent 45-39.   

  • Lady Bears slip by Fillies in...

    The two teams had met this season one other time and Bracken County won by a 69-28 score on the Fillies’ home floor.  It was hard to believe the same two teams were facing each other on Tuesday night as Harrison County battled tooth and nail before falling 53-48 to the Lady Bears.
    Harrison County took an early lead with baskets by senior Emalee Little and freshman Chelsea Ingram but Bracken County scored two three pointers to take the lead 6-5 with under four minutes remaining in the opening period.  

  • Some things I don’t understand

    I’m 63 years old, traveled to every state but three or four if you count Alaska, been to four foreign countries and have been married 40 years in July. Yet, events happen and things are said every day that continue to amaze me. Let me give you some examples.
    NBA basketball’s all star weekend and what attraction that has to a seemingly large group of Americans baffles me.

  • Fillies lose district final to...

    “We were not ready to play at all,” bemoaned first year assistant coach Chris Reffett. “Our shots didn’t fall, but we were simply not ready mentally to play.”  
    This comment summed up the lackluster performance of the Harrison County Fillies in the finals of the 38th District Thursday at Nicholas County.  

  • Sports beat

  • River Road Bass Club
  • Tri-County Sluggers
  • Little did they know

    The headline should have said “Did they know Little?” referring to Harrison County senior Emalee Little. The 5-foot-4-inch small forward hit five three pointers en route to a game and career high 21 points in the Fillies 56-49 win.  
    The win avenged a regular season loss to the Lady Cats in which neither Little nor sophomore center Jordan Doram played.  

  • Cold shooting leads to the end...

    “We played good enough defensively to win,” commented Coach Mike Reitz following the 36-33 loss to Pendleton County Monday night. “The shots just would not fall.”  
    Harrison County made only 27 percent from the field Monday in the opening round of the 38th District Tournament, which was made worse by the fact that they were one for 17 for six percent from the three-point line.  
    A few of the shots were forced, but the vast majority were attempts that, on most other occasions, went into the basket.
    Not on this night.
