    This Saturday at the National Guard Armory, Rob McCann will be host to the Strongest Southern Belle 2016 competition, which is a five-event contest that will establish who the strongest woman is in each of 11 separate classes.

    On Friday night, the Harrison County Thorobreds traveled to Maysville to do battle with 10th Region basketball power Mason County.

    Brock Jenkins and Zack Pulliam had seven points at the half to lead the Breds.
