After being eliminated from the IHSAA Sectional in late January, the girls’ basketball team ended their season with a 13-11 record.

“This season went much better than the previous seasons which I’m grateful to be part of. I was hoping to make the championship of sectionals. We had the best draw we could have had but it was upsetting to lose against Jennings County in the first round. On the bright side, we did have a winning season which hadn’t happened in years,” said senior Gracie Fitzgerald. “This season was also very interesting. We are just dominos of injuries. Despite that, we played every every game with our best possible effort. This team definitely proved potential for the next few years. I’m so proud to be a part of this team.”

“Last season was amazing. We should’ve won a few more of the close games, but I’m really happy with how it went. The team really grew together as the season went on and played as a family. My main goal was a winning season because since I’ve been in the program we haven’t had one, and we had a winning season this year,” said senior Chenaniah Clark.

To further reflect on the season, take a look back on 2016-17 Senior Night.

“In the area of the transition between Harrison and Floyd Country along I-64, they put up a 10 acre solar electric field. That array is providing enough energy for an estimated 150 households,” said science teacher C.J Jackson.

As the dimming lights silence the talkative crowd seated throughout Studio One, a voice welcomes the audience, gives a lengthy thank you to all the sponsors that helped fund the One Act Festival, and introduces the two individuals who made the night possible. Once the footsteps in the dark still, a burning spotlight settles on the figures of junior Will DeVary and senior Sarah Denison. Together, they provide a general overview of the evening, briefly describing their shows and the actors associated with each, and giving thanks to a handful of contributors. On January 27, 28, and 29, these young directors showcased their skills in directing their own productions of The Long Christmas Dinner by Thornton Wilder and White Lies by Richard James.
