  • A new idea for Region 10

    The 10th Region Tournament has been disappointing to me largely because of the outcomes. Mason County and Harrison County did a fine job of running the tournaments so my disappointment lies with the results not the management.
    After Monday’s semi-finals in Mason County, the two teams left standing were Campbell County and Scott.  So, for the girls’ tournament, the 10th Region is being represented by an all-star team and in the boys’ tournament the representative will be from the 9th Region formerly.

    Coaches Austin Dacci of the Harrison County Fillies tennis team and Ron Markley of the Thorobreds tennis team have some things in common as the season gets ready to begin next Tuesday.  
    Both have veterans returning with hopes of making deep runs into the state competition.  The toughest competition for both will be Bourbon County, Fort Thomas Highlands, Mason County and Campbell County.

    After finishing last year as 10th Region runners-up, and returning two quality veteran pitchers this season, Harrison County’s Fillies are highly regarded.  
    So highly regarded that the 10th Region coaches pre-season poll has the Fillies as favorites just ahead of Bourbon County.  
    Coach Christine Garnett, in her tenth year as head coach of the Fillies, is also optimistic, but cautiously so.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds turned the ball over only five times, had more steals, more assists and only lost the rebound battle by three rebounds last Wednesday night in the second game of the 10th Region Tournament against Bracken County. Yet, the Breds came up on the short end of the 52-40 score to finish the season at 6-26 while Bracken County improved to 17-14.  
    The reason is simple when one looks at the field-goal and the free-throw shooting results.

    The Harrison County Fillies jumped out to a 6-2 lead early in the ball game Tuesday night but that joy was short lived in the 72-26 win by Mason County, in the first round of the 10th Region Tournament, held on the Hilltop.  
    Freshman Katelin Ecklar and eighth-grader Elizabeth Allison hit the threes but Mason County outscored the Fillies 13-2 the rest of the first period for a 15-8 lead at the first stop.

    The Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds track team took seven competitors to Mason County Saturday for a 39 team competition. Nineteen girls teams and 20 male teams participated.  
    Louisville Male won the female portion of the meet and Covington Catholic won the boys with Male second.  Rockcastle County was a close second to Male in the girls’ competition.  

  • Well done by all schools

    In this day of protests where no one seems to be able to get along, we had a very successful 38th District tournament.  
    The crowds were large and, for the most part, polite and respectful.  
    I do not understand why fans from a school want to sit in the other school’s section but that is a minor issue and only a few do it. The student sections, while near the floor and boisterous, were in control except for a few bull---- yells.
