  • 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.

    Harrison County wrestling Coach Luke Tucker doesn’t believe in building a record against easy competition.  This was evident Saturday as the Thorobreds played host to 12 outstanding wrestling teams in the annual Rumble on the Hilltop.  
    Tucker’s Thorobreds won the event with 165 points followed closely by Scott High and Montgomery County.

    Coach Larry Kendall called time out with less than seven minutes left in the contest trailing 62-40 to Scott High’s Eagles.  
    “I told the boys that we had two ways to go,” he said. “We can either keep playing like we are and get blown out or play harder and smarter and get back into the game. It is up to you.”
