  • 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.  

  • Harrison County wrestlers unable...

    Seniors Anthony Shirley and Shawn Tobin were close but neither made it to the podium and the Harrison County wrestlers went scoreless in the state meet last weekend at the Kentucky Horse Park.  

  • College referee’s don’t get paid...

    Before I go into my main topic of the week, I want to mention an award that my brother John received last Friday.  
    Only John’s wife and daughters were aware of his being named to the North Hardin Basketball Hall of Fame last Friday for his contributions over several years to the program.  

  • Fillies drop overtime battle to...

    In a game that was close throughout, the Harrison County Fillies lost an overtime thriller to Bryan Station of Lexington Friday in the season finale on the Hilltop.  
    The Lady Defenders, who were at one time highly rated this year, used man-to-man pressure and quickness to forge ahead early, but the Fillies handled the pressure well to stay in striking distance.  
    Bryan Station held the first quarter advantage at 15-8 but the Fillies chipped away at the margin and cut the lead to four at 27-23 by halftime.
