    The Harrison County Archery team improved over their opening tournament performance a week ago, especially in the elementary and middle school divisions as they competed Friday night at Williamstown High School.  
    The Westside Elementary team was second of seven teams and the Northside team was fourth of seven teams.  The Harrison County Middle School team was fourth of 19 teams while the Harrison County High School team was 12th of 18 squads.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds lost in the last seconds to Nicholas County 61-60 as senior guard Trent Letcher made two free throws to notch the victory for the 3-2 Bluejackets.  
    Sophomore Blake Price had put the Breds on top in the seesaw affair but Letcher was fouled to put him on the line.  Quenton Turley’s foul also disqualified him with five fouls so after Letcher’s made free throws the Breds were seemingly rudderless on their last possession.

    The Wednesday trip to Grant County saw the Fillies hold their own through the first half trailing by only seven at 22-15.  This was after Harrison County held an 8-7 lead at the first quarter stop.

  • Penn State was robbed

    Each year when the final four of college football is announced there is a team or two who claims to have been left out unjustly.  
    Several years in a row mid-sized Boise State cried foul after they were either undefeated or had one loss and were left out of the top echelon of teams.  
    The argument always is that if we picked six there would be teams seven and eight who would claim to be shafted.  There is always going to be someone who thinks that the system cheated them.
