  • A correction on bowling team and...

    The hardest part first: My article on the bowling team last week had some errors and I need to do what I can about that.  
    First, Shelby Morris was the Fillies’ bowler on the All Tournament team and not the player that I mentioned.  
    I tried to do the article from a roster that a parent sent me and my memory, which was a mistake.  
    I do appreciate the roster, but my memory wasn’t good enough to be accurate about all of the players.  

  • Eighth grade HCMS Colts remain...

    The sixth, seventh and eight grade Harrison County Middle School Colts traveled to Winchester Monday to take on the new Robert D. Campbell School.  
    The results were quite different, however, as the sixth grade started slowly and was hopelessly out of the game early, the seventh grade hung around for a half before losing and the eighth grade team won.
    The bus was some 30 minutes late arriving so the sixth grade Colts had little time to warm up and prepare, which was evident by their slow start.

    Coaches Petey Reynolds, Dennis Hyatt and Frazier Fryman have two seniors on each the Thorobreds and Fillies bowling teams but that didn’t stop them from scheduling a tough season for their squads.  Hyatt and Fryman work mainly with the Fillies while Reynolds handles the Thorobreds.  

  • Why even bother with a...

    Last Thursday the Harrison County Middle School sixth grade team jumped ahead at the half by a 17-0 score over Powell County. At the end of the first quarter I turned to the lady sitting next to me and said, “If they were really concerned about school work, they would stop this game and start the next one. That way the kids could get home at a reasonable hour on a school night. After all, Powell County will not score 10 points for the whole game.”

    The Harrison County eighth grade Colts remained undefeated after playing Powell and Bourbon counties last week.
    The Harrison County Middle School teams played at Powell County on Thursday and hosted Bourbon County on Monday night.
    The seventh grade team remained winless and the sixth grade posted an even record for the year.
    The sixth grade made quick and easy work of Powell County on Thursday, jumping out to a 17-0 halftime score and breezing to a 29-8 win.

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    Coach Luke Tucker took his highly regarded Harrison County wrestling team to Hazard Saturday to compete in the scrimmage at Perry County Central. “This was a good opportunity for us (the coaches) to get our new guys their first taste of live action, said Coach Tucker. It allowed us to see what the wrestlers are retaining and what we need to cover before we get into the real season.”

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    Friday evening at 6 p.m. the Harrison County High School Athletic Department held the annual Meet the Fillies and Breds in the high school gym. Fillies head basketball coach Kim Furnish was the emcee of the evening and she began by thanking everyone for coming out to support the athletes for the winter sports. The gym was about one third full with the athletes and the fans that were in attendance.
