  • NFHS changes some rules for 2013 high school football season

    The National Federation of High Schools, as usual, changed some of the rules for the upcoming season.  
    Many of the rule changes are minor modifications as in other years, but a couple of them are changes that the coaches will have to emphasize as they are kick-off related changes.
    The first change listed is a minor one, but one that was more often enforced than one might think.  
    The rules committee voted to allow solid colored moisture absorbing towels to be worn by players.  

  • Fifth annual “Jungle” this weekend at the Cynthiana Country Club

    “This tournament is a small way we can honor and remember our good friend,” said Doug Hampton of the Palmer-Hampton Insurance and Real Estate Agency. “Jim Letcher and I played golf every Sunday at 12:20 p.m. for 26 years if it was 55 degrees or more.”
    The tournament formerly called the Palmer-Hampton Member/Guest was changed to “The Jungle” in 2009 following Letcher’s untimely death.  
    Letcher was an active member of the Cynthiana Country Club and of the community as a whole.  

  • Soccer Breds hope to improve on historic 2012 season

    Many high school soccer teams that lost eight starters from the previous year would be crying the blues hoping to be able to just compete while they rebuild.

    The Breds, coached by Nick Hill, are anxious to get the season started so they can improve on last year’s historic region winning season.

  • Football season predictions

    Alabama will win the championship again. Nice short article.
    I’m a little surprised at the preseason polls that I see putting Texas A&M up really high in the national picture and not giving LSU much of a chance to compete with Alabama and Georgia for the overall SEC title.  
    Johnny Manziel has the media in a frenzy over the Aggies and I must say the schedule favors a good showing but not a grand power rating.  

  • Harrison County volleyball hopes to rebound from last year

    “It was our first losing year in 10 years,” Coach Bill Faulkner said of the 2012 season. “We were 14-18, but could have been even with a few breaks. We will be better this year.”
    The volleyball Fillies have six seniors returning, three with varsity experience and three others with some varsity and a lot of junior varsity experience.  
    Two other sophomores return with starting experience, one a libero and one at left outside hitter, so Faulkner is feeling pretty good about his experienced players.

  • Harrison County cheerleaders preparing for another exciting season

    Coach Jessica Reynolds and the Harrison County cheerleaders do not actually have an off season.  
    At the end of each school year the seniors move on to college or to a chosen field and new young ladies take their place.  
    The work continues with new programs and material put in place for the next year of competition and cheering on the Fillies and Breds.
