  • Some ideas for State Softball...

    As most of you know, the Harrison County Fillies traveled to Owensboro Thursday to compete in the KHSAA State High School Softball Tournament. Sixteen regions were represented with many fans from each school there to back their local school.  
    Harrison County had a very good contingent of people in attendance to support our Fillies. The Fillies did a very good job representing themselves, the school and the community.
    Who didn’t do a very good job was the KHSAA and, in some regards, the City of Owensboro.

  • Mike’s Minute: Is civility gone?

    I am not a big fan of the routine of hand shaking after sporting events.  
    The potential for something ugly to happen is too big a risk in my opinion. It is however, the norm after high school and other sporting events while not as much of a full team participation activity in college and professional sports.  
    But in high school sports it is the thing to do. That is unless you are George Rogers Clark High School’s baseball team.

    In 2007, the U.S. Soccer organization created an academy based on a philosophy of increased training, fewer total games but more meaningful games using international rules of competition.  
    The Academy has 150 clubs across the United States in five age groups from U-12 to U-17/18.  For the first time the Academy is expanding the program to include females with the Girls’ Development Academy to begin in the fall of 2017.
