  • Harrison wrestlers finish third in region, Mattox and Lopez champs

    In what was probably the understatement of the year, Coach Luke Tucker said, “We had a pretty good day.”
    Tucker was referring to the Harrison County wrestlers’ performance at the Region 8 in Ashland.  
    The Thorobreds finished third as a team one-half point behind second place Montgomery County while Johnson Central won the meet with 238 points.  

  • Events other than basketball going on

    We talked quite a bit Saturday on the radio about baseball, softball and car racing, which brought some good natured kidding from the basketball faithful of Harrison County.  
    After all, the Cats were playing Florida and we are only one week from the district tournament so all eyes should be on the round ball action.  
    Also, the Lady Cats were playing Tennessee, as well, so what else could there be but basketball?  
    NASCAR has its biggest event this Sunday with the Daytona 500 and I bet there are some who care about that little race.
