    Middle school girls finish season
    The Harrison County Middle School seventh and eighth grade teams were eliminated from the Bluegrass Conference Tournament last week ending their seasons.  
    The eighth grade girls played on Tuesday night losing 35-9 to a very good Woodford County team.  Sylvonya Williams scored three points to lead the young Fillies with Madelynn Denniston, Grace Young and Emma Courtney each connecting for two points.  This ended the season for the eighth graders with a 6-13 record.

  • The right kind of hero

    I have been thinking about this column for a while from several different angles and finally recent events made it clearer as to what to say.
    While not being one to be a hero worshiper, I did have people in sports and other places that I looked up to over the years.  
    I always believe that if one has a good dad that the role of hero should be filled to some degree.  
    That was how it was for me but still I did have other people that I also looked up to in my life.

    The loss ended Pendleton County’s season at 5-14.

  • Thorobreds drop district match...

    “There were several factors that spelled disaster for us,” said Coach Nick Hill. “Playing on a way undersized field compared to what we usually play on, high wind gusts, lack of effort and not being mentally prepared or focused. All of these ingredients led to a very poor performance on our part and ultimately cost us the match.”
