    The Harrison County High School, middle school and elementary archery teams visited northern Kentucky Saturday to compete in the NASP Region 8 Tournament.  
    The best team showing came from the Westside Elementary archers who finished third of nine teams with a total of 2,695.  
    New Haven won with 3,014 followed by Piner with 2,896.  

  • A positively good time in...

    Patti tells me often before I write my column to be positive. I sometimes find it difficult to do so but this week I do not.  
    We had a great time in Indianapolis Saturday and Sunday.
    Sure no one likes to lose, but we played hard and at the end of the day that is really all a coach can ask his or her team to do. Playing smart would also be nice. Teams don’t always do that, but that is not positive.
    There are several observations that I would like to make about the weekend.

    Fillies, Thorobreds draw Robertson County for district
    With District 38 not being seeded, the luck of the draw becomes an important part of the district tournament. This year, the Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds each drew the Black Devils of Robertson County.  
    The district tournament begins on Monday Feb. 22, with the Fillies (7-15) vs. the Lady Black Devils (3-13) playing at 6:30 p.m.  This game will be followed by the Breds (10-10) vs. the Black Devils (5-14) at 8 p.m.  

  • One of the good guys

    During the painful viewing of the Harrison County, Pendleton County doubleheader, I was lucky enough to share a little more than one half of a game talking with one of Harrison County’s greats.  
    Teddy Taylor came up to where I sit in the “Catholic” section and we talked about many and varied subjects.  
    I say “one of the best-ever” not just talking about Teddy’s great football playing days but how he is an all around good person.

    Turnovers and tentative play led to a resounding defeat Monday night for Harrison County at home at the hands of the George Rogers Clark Lady Cards.  
    The Lady Cards (11-8) used a full-court press through the first half to cause 19 turnovers and forced shots by the Fillies.  
    The Fillies started okay with the score even at four each after two minutes.
