    Soccer Senior Night
    changed to Friday
    The Harrison County High School soccer team’s Senior Night has been changed to Friday, Oct. 2, to accommodate the opponent, Calvary Christian. This will also be Free Youth Night for any youth soccer league player who comes dressed in his/her jersey.
    One of the Calvary Christian player’s mother passed away on Tuesday and the visitation and ceremony is Thursday night. This was the only alternative date that would allow the match to be played with the Cougars.

  • How much is too much

    Coach Larry Kendall sent me an email the other day to let me know about the change in the basketball schedule in regards to the game with Collins in February.  
    It seems that the Thorobreds are going to play this game in Banker’s Life Arena in Indianapolis instead of on the Hilltop.  
    How about that for a change in destination?  
    What a great opportunity for the young men on the team, the coaches and the cheerleaders to get to play, coach and cheer on a professional floor.  
    What is the catch you might be thinking?

    Coach Nick Hill’s Harrison County soccer Breds spotted Sayre a 2-0 lead Tuesday night before coming back to battle to a 2-2 tie. “Nobody likes to tie, especially when you play as well as we did tonight, noted Hill. But when we come back from a two score deficit we will take it.”

    “This was a great team effort; I am proud of every one of my players,” beamed Coach Jason Crisp. “This is the best team finish since I have been coaching.”

    Superior serving and play all around led the Harrison County Fillies varsity to a straight-set win over Fleming County Monday on the Hilltop.
    The Fillies won the first set 25-16 and came back after a slow start to smoke the Lady Panthers 25-13 in the second set.
    The first set was tight until Payton Hollar served seven straight points. Hollar’s pin-point serves took a close game and made it a breather.
