    Middle school girls finish season
    The Harrison County Middle School seventh and eighth grade teams were eliminated from the Bluegrass Conference Tournament last week ending their seasons.  
    The eighth grade girls played on Tuesday night losing 35-9 to a very good Woodford County team.  Sylvonya Williams scored three points to lead the young Fillies with Madelynn Denniston, Grace Young and Emma Courtney each connecting for two points.  This ended the season for the eighth graders with a 6-13 record.

  • The right kind of hero

    I have been thinking about this column for a while from several different angles and finally recent events made it clearer as to what to say.
    While not being one to be a hero worshiper, I did have people in sports and other places that I looked up to over the years.  
    I always believe that if one has a good dad that the role of hero should be filled to some degree.  
    That was how it was for me but still I did have other people that I also looked up to in my life.

    Harrison County improved to 3-5 Friday night as senior Jovon Williams led the Breds to a 29-7 win over Mason County.  
    The game, which was played in windy conditions in the Athletic Complex gives the Thorobreds a 2-1 district mark and a shot at a home game for the playoffs.  
    The Oct. 23 game at Bourbon County will determine which of the two teams has a home game in the playoffs.

    The first round of the 38th District Tournament was finished on Tuesday night as lightning caused the Harrison County versus St. Patrick game to be postponed.  
    In the opening match, Mason County avenged an earlier defeat at the hands of Pendleton County by coming back for a 4-3 overtime victory over the Lady Cats.  
    The loss ended Pendleton County’s season at 5-14.

    “There were several factors that spelled disaster for us,” said Coach Nick Hill. “Playing on a way undersized field compared to what we usually play on, high wind gusts, lack of effort and not being mentally prepared or focused. All of these ingredients led to a very poor performance on our part and ultimately cost us the match.”

    Last Wednesday the Harrison County Fillies traveled to Maysville and extended their winning streak to four matches with a 2-0 straight set win over St. Patrick.  
    The Fillies’ 25-6 and 25-10 win left the Saints with a 4-16 season record.
    When facing the Saints, the Fillies had 12 serving aces and 21 assists. Casey Wallace had 14 digs and Danielle Dunaway scored on six kills.  
    The Harrison County junior varsity also was a 2-0 straight set winner.

  • Pro teams need a quarterback

    While I realize that my title is not exactly a profound, brilliant statement, let me explain.  
    Sure, each and every team, pro or not, needs a quarterback and when the starter gets hurt it throws many teams into a tailspin.  
    However, professional teams seem to really hit the skids when their ace goes down.
    Some prime examples are taking place right now with the Cowboys, the Steelers and the Saints, and the Browns have also been affected.

    HCMS football season ends
    with losses to Grant County
    The Harrison County Middle School Colts finished the 2015 season Thursday evening in Ingles Stadium with a pair of losses to Grant County. The games were lost with identical 22-8 scores in favor of the visiting Braves.
    The seventh grade game was tied 8-8 at the half but Grant County’s running game proved too much for the Colts in the second half. The Braves scored twice on running plays after sustained drives.
