    The Bracken County “Iceberg” Special Cross Country Meet was held Saturday, but had there been an iceberg, there surely would have been some flooding. The hot, humid weather and the rough terrain made for some treacherous footing which made running difficult.  
    Senior Grant Carr found the surface to his liking, however, as his performance in his mother’s old stomping grounds was good enough for second place.

    Volleyball team edges Robertson Co.,
    loses a close match at Brossart
    The Harrison County volleyball team eased past district rival Robertson County Thursday night in a straight set win 25-11, 25-22, 25-18. The 3-0 win was due to a good display of passing, setting and ball handling, according to Coach Bill Faulkner.  
    “Robertson County has a nice team with some good size and we had to play well to beat them in straight sets,” he noted. “It is always important to win the district matches.”

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    When you might think of a Rocky Mountain horse the first thought would be of a breed which would be prominent in the western states near the Rocky Mountains.  
    Well, as Lee Corso would say, “Not so fast my friends.”  
    Harrison County is one of the more established areas in the country of the breed that is known for its sure footedness and good temperament.

    By Stepahnie Cole, EKU public relations
    RICHMOND, Ky. – In the heat of two Texan summers, Bobby Feeback rubbed shoulders with some Cowboys in the fields. The football fields, that is.
    Now, after two summer-long, pre-season internships with the team, Feeback, an Eastern Kentucky University senior athletic training major from Cynthiana, has accepted a two-year seasonal position with the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Have some pride out there

    One of the favorite clichés for the assistant football coach to scream at players following a less than admirable play is to “Have some Pride.”  
    Let’s examine that saying in case after being screamed at for 40 straight minutes the young player even comprehends what is being spat at him.  
    Pride in the dictionary is a noun meaning “feeling of one’s personal worth; justly proud; best of a group, conceit; group of lions.”  

  • Harrison cross country runs well...

    The Harrison County Fillies were third and the Thorobreds sixth in Saturday’s Berea Invitational Meet as the season reaches the half way point.  
    Freshman Taylor Harney led the Fillies as she had her best race finishing 27th in 27:44.  
    Caylin Mattox was right behind Harney finishing 28th with Abby Cooper 30th, Kayla Joy 36th, Tamara Lunsford 37th and Chelsea Bowman 40th in the 5000M run.  
    The race was run on a slower course which winds through the woods and beside a creek in a picturesque setting that the runners enjoy.  

  • Harrison County volleyball...

    Last week was an extremely busy one for the Harrison County Fillies volleyball team, but one that saw them win six of eight matches and take third place in the Dink Scott Tournament in Mt. Sterling.
    The Villa Madonna Blue Lightning were guests of the Fillies on Thursday night and, according to Coach Bill Faulkner, his girls may have been too gracious as hosts.  
    “I felt like we should have won the Villa Madonna match,” he explained. “We just made some silly mistakes and had some bad service attempts.”
