  • HCHS cross country begins season...

    The Harrison County cross country teams ran at Asbury College Tuesday in the Chick-Fil-A Invitational and again Saturday at Ryle High School’s Invitational Meet.  
    The weather for both events was hot, brutally so, and very humid causing some asthma and allergies to make things difficult for the runners.
    The Asbury College meet had several quality opponents to compete against as well as the weather conditions, but still, the young runners showed improvement both over last week’s scrimmage and this same course a year ago.  

  • Priorities are all out of whack

    The first week of the college football season finished up on Monday with Pittsburgh losing to Florida State and there were many exciting games between teams who could have something to say about the national championship.  
    All of this along with the Thorobreds winning for the second straight time against a Gallatin County team that was better than I expected them to be lead to an exciting weekend of football.  
    So what priorities are out of whack?

    “In each set we just couldn’t get a stop when we had to have one,” bemoaned Coach Bill Faulkner. “Powell County has a really nice team, but we were in each set with a chance to win and just didn’t do it.”
