  • Winning streaks over for Fillies...

    Saturday night took a toll on the two-game winning streak of the Fillies and the four-game streak of the Thorobreds as both lost on the road.  
    The Fillies dropped a 57-48 verdict to Bishop Brossart in Alexandria as they fell behind early and could not catch up.  
    The Thorobreds trailed by 11 at the half but Collins went on a 17-to-2 run to open the second half for the 63-51 win.
    Brossart scored the first six points of the Fillies’ contest before senior Whitney Gray scored with nearly two minutes gone in the game.

  • Colts complete regular season in...

    The Harrison County Middle School Colts completed the regular season Wednesday night as they battled the Wildcats of Phillip A. Sharp Middle School.  
    The HCMS eighth grade team will advance to the Bluegrass Conference Tournament as they host Georgetown Middle Tuesday night.  
    The winner of that game will face Scott County Middle on Thursday with the finals at Elkhorn on Friday.
    The sixth grade Colts jumped out to a 6-1 lead after one quarter and pulled steadily away for a 33-23 victory.  

  • This and that

    The Class “A” Basketball tournament is over with both the girls’ and boys’ tournament winners hailing from the 9th Region.  
    Covington Holy Cross and Newport Central Catholic were the winners.  
    Newport Central Catholic won for the third straight year, which sounds like it is time for a move up to the next level. I would propose that when a team wins the Class “A” that they have to move to a higher class for at least one year.  
    This would help give the non-recruiters a chance to win one now and then.
