The Harrison cross country teams ran through dense humidity on Saturday morning at the Lakota East Invitational and coach Jon Mottsinger reports the results were not what the boys’ and girls’ teams had been hoping for.
“We’ve set some high goals for this season, but we fell short the first week,” said Mottsinger. “I know most of them were frustrated with their times, but we did a lot of things right.”

The Harrison Ladycats golf team received a “wake-up call” from Oak Hills last week in the forms of a 169-212 loss at Neumann Golf Course, according to Harrison coach Bryan Carr.

“We had three girls in the low 50s and each of them was one hole away from getting into the 40s,” said Carr.

All of the Oak Hills players shot in the low 40s, according to Carr.

Harrison Wildcats football coach Kent McCullough is a relative newcomer to the Harrison/East Central rivalry, but he knows a typical Wildcats/Trojans matchup when he sees one and last Friday’s 21-17 win for the Cats was one of them.

“It was a typical Harrison/East Central football game,” said McCullough. “It was a fight all the way to the end.”

 

Three of the four times McCullough has coached in this game the winning team won by a touchdown or less.

 

“I think last year’s game (a 34-7 win for the Cats) was a fluke. This is the type of game we expect when we play East Central,” said McCullough.

 

It was a game the Trojans certainly feel they could win. After losing the lead to the Cats with 5:44 to go in the game on a 17-yard pass from Jake Weber to Alex Anderson, the Trojans methodically marched down the field, reaching the Harrison eight yard line for a first and goal situation.

The Harrison Ladycats volleyball team had a terrific five-set win over Glen Este in the opening match of the season, that Harrison coach Amy Berwanger said included the biggest comeback in a set that she has seen in her 18 years at Harrison.

In the third set, trailing by a score of 24-15, senior setter Miranda Charls served up 11 straight points, three of them aces, as Harrison fought back to win the set 26-24. Jodi Bittner had three of her nine kills in the match during that 11-0 run.

Somewhere down the line, if the Harrison Wildcats have the kind of season coach Kent McCullough expects, the Cats could face the Loveland Tigers in a playoff game.

There are 10 regular season games before that can possibly happen, though, but if it does McCullough knows that playing teams like the defending state champion Tigers in a scrimmage will help his team in the long run.

For the first time in three years, the Harrison Ladycats have opened the soccer season with a pair of victories.

Harrison defeated Glen Este in the opener, 2-1, and then dominated Hamilton by a score of 7-1.

“We’re definitely off to a good start,” said Harrison coach Troy Kinnett.

In the win over Glen Este, Harrison opened the scoring in the first half. The Trojans were called for a handball in the box and Kayla Childs scored on the penalty kick.

Harrison Wildcats football coach Kent McCullough is more used to smoldering weather for two-a-day practices in August, so he believes the members of the 2014 team have had it easy thus far. But as hitting and full pads were allowed on Saturday, the intensity level officially rose.

Harrison boys’ soccer coach Chris Johnson believes his team will have quality depth this season, but that belief will be tested in a way that Johnson would rather not face: injuries.
