  • Cynthiana’s loss is heaven and...

    The title to this article is unusual for a sports column, but it is about sports, in a way.  
    Last week Virgil (Vee) Florence passed away. He was only 79 years old.   
    There is a generation or more of young ladies that passed through Harrison County High School and played basketball who were affected in a positive way by Mr. Florence.  
    Many of his former players credit Coach Vee for being a person that they could share their troubles, both on and off the floor.

    After a slow start Friday night, the Harrison County Thorobreds rallied to beat Grant County, 61-55, on the Hilltop.  
    Saturday night the Breds continued the win-one, lose-one habit, losing 55-42 to Anderson County.
    The Thorobreds played with little energy Friday in the first half as they fell behind by five, 22-17, at the end of the first period.

    The Dixie Lady Colonels swept a freshman, junior varsity and varsity triple header Saturday, Dec. 12, over Harrison County in northern Kentucky.  
    Like Nicholas County the night before, Dixie won their first game of the season after dropping the first four games.  
    Harrison County remained stuck in neutral in the third quarter while Dixie found at least second gear pulling away for a 48-32 win.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds sport an even 3-3 record following a Friday night win at Nicholas County and a Monday night home loss to Madison Central.
    The Thorobreds took an early lead against the outmanned Bluejackets Friday night and never were pressed in the 77-47 win for Harrison County.  
    Senior Zack Pulliam hit for 10 first-quarter points and Leon Commodore had nine in the second period as the Breds ran out to a 42-24 lead at the half.

    The Harrison County Fillies rolled to a big halftime lead and held off Grant County’s Lady Braves in the second half for a 49-40 win on the Hilltop Wednesday.  
    Junior center Emma Darnell’s hot start in the first quarter propelled the Fillies to a 14-4 advantage after the first period and the Fillies would not look back.  
    Grant County did not have an answer for Darnell early defensively.

  • Some Christmas season thoughts

    It was 30 years ago on Dec. 13 that the University of Evansville basketball team all died in a plane crash just outside the Evansville airport.  Twenty-nine people, including the coaching staff, athletic director, a couple of boosters and the team were on the ill-fated plane that night.  
    I was driving home from a Thorobreds’ game in Maysville when the news came on the radio.  
    There was a player from my hometown, Tell City, on the team so it hit more close to home than maybe it would have otherwise.
