Despite being born three months early, not sitting up until he was 2 years old, not walking until he was 5, and having never spoken, 52-year-old Timothy Perkins completed his first 5K on Sept. 22 in Milwaukee. 

Since August 2015, Kyle Farfsing had attempted 203 kicks (field goals and extra points), making 189 through eight games in 2018. He is a weapon few Southwest Ohio Conference or Division II teams can match. Photo by Sandy Minor

 

Thirty-eight months ago, a 6-0, 150-pound freshman walked onto the football field at East Central High School in St. Leon, wearing the green-and-white of the visiting rivals. He stood at about the 15-yard line, waiting for the snap of the ball. His team was trailing 8-6 in the second quarter.

Harrison High School senior midfielder Courtney Hatfield assisted on 14 of the team’s 59 goals through 15 games. She also has scored twice, which ranks her 10th in the SWOC in total points with 18. In high school soccer, players are awarded two points for each goal and one for each assist. Photo by Sandy Minor

 

The Southwest Ohio Conference’s leading assist maker in girls soccer stands as an inspiration and example for her teammates as they have struggled through an up-and-down season.

The fact that she stands at all is an inspiration.

Week eight (Oct. 12)

Kelly Vetter and her husband, Teddy, spent more than 10 years trying for a baby before they had their daughter, Tiffany. Now, they are trying to grow their family through adoption of 1-year-old Mia, above. The family raised $1,400 to help with adoption expenses during a fundraiser at Harrison Bowl on Sunday, Sept. 30.

Harrison residents Kelly and Teddy Vetter have been married for 20 years, and Kelly said she was ready to be a mom from the moment she said “I do.”

But, for many years, the two had trouble conceiving a child. 

After nine years of marriage, Kelly finally got pregnant, only to suffer a miscarriage.

Sophomore Cam Hering did most of work, with 12 carries for 58 yards after halftime. His nine-yard touchdown run with 43 seconds remaining in the third quarter gave Harrison a 35-28 advantage.

Harrison’s varsity football team got its signature victory Friday night, authored by a unit that has dealt with its share of adversity this season.

The Wildcats overcame a 14-0 first quarter deficit, outscoring previously undefeated Little Miami 42-14 the rest of the way in a 42-28 Homecoming victory.
