  • Tigers’ harriers earn national...

    Georgetown College men’s and women’s cross country achieved a first in Tiger athletics through their selflessness and community-centered outreach this season.
    Friday evening at the honors banquet for the NAIA Cross Country National Championship meet, the men’s team received the NAIA Buffalo Funds Five Star Champions of Character Team Award for all these efforts. However, coach Lucas Garnett is quick to point out, this award is an acknowledgement for both teams.

  • Time for thankfulness

    During this time of the year I like to think about what I am thankful for, so for the purpose of this article, I will write what in sports makes me thankful.
    I first am thankful that I am in good enough health to go to sporting events. I realized last Friday night when I was standing on the sidelines for the playoff game at Scott High how much I enjoy just watching the games.

    Way back in 1971, Doug Hampton was a young teacher and coach at Harrison County High School.  
    He was asked by the principal if he would mind refereeing a freshman basketball game at the school that evening. It paid $10 and would not take too long since it was a freshman game.
     It was a quick and easy 10 bucks so when he was asked to officiate a freshman tournament the next weekend, he jumped at the chance.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds hope to improve on what was a banner year in 2014-15 when they sent 13 wrestlers to the state finals.  
    Gone from last year are Clay Arthur, Noah Mitchell, Colton Mott, Sean Mullikin and Mark Taylor, so the Breds will have their work cut out for them.  
    Coach Luke Tucker and his staff of Josh Ashbrook, Mitch Mattox and Anthony Newby do have a veteran group returning, many of whom were state final participants last season.

  • Home school and eligibility

    One of the three items never to bring up in mixed company is religion with the other two being sex and politics.  
    Living where we do in the heart of basketball land of Kentucky and Indiana, sports is a religion to many so the rule is broken nearly every day in many conversations.  
    So, I am going to break it again by going into the talk of making home schooled youth eligible to participate in extra curricular activities in public schools
