  • Protecting the officials

    I was talking with a local basketball official the other day about the subject of what the high school system is required to do for the officials on game day.  
    I will start by telling you that, to my knowledge, Harrison County goes above what is required.
    The school is to have someone to meet the officials when they arrive at the gym and take them to their private dressing facility. They are to have their checks ready or the paperwork to fill out to mail the checks to the officials within a reasonable time frame.

    Faulkner is Coach of the Year
    For the fourth time in his career, Harrison County Coach Bill Faulkner has been named Coach of the Year by his 10th Region fellow coaches.
    Faulkner’s Fillies had a spectacular year, finishing 37-2 and advancing to the 10th Region semi-finals.  Kelly Franxman of 10th Region champ Scott High was named the Player of the Year for the region.  
    The Kentucky Volleyball Coaches Association will name the first, second and honorable mention all-state teams on Monday, Nov. 6.

  • On to winter sports

    Winter sports are upon us as basketball will get into the exhibition season, and wrestling will get into full swing now that football is over.  
    I thought that I would go over one more time the fall sports before we move on.  
    Boys soccer began the season with a new coach and a fast start.  
    As the season wore on, the boys’ struggled some but came on at the end to give a good accounting for themselves.  
    The Fillies soccer was supposed to be good and did not disappoint.

    Friday night was a first for both Western Hills and Harrison County. It was the first time that Western Hills defeated the Breds in football in 12 tries.  
    Friday’s game was closer in the first half than the experts had predicted as the Thorobreds offense picked up more yardage than in the two previous games combined.

    Coach Larry Kendall has his 2017-18 version of Harrison County Thorobreds working on improving on last year’s 6-26 record. The Breds were 38th District champions, however, with that record that is never easily achieved.  
    Kendall said he believes that Pendleton County will be the main competition in the 38th District again this year but also said that Nicholas County can never be counted out.
