Highlands High School lost in an intense game 36-0 against Covington Catholic on Friday.


Covington Catholic took the lead at halftime with a score of 7-0. Coach Scott Turner thinks they worked well but could have done better.

“We defended well in the first half, but I felt like we could have worked on the mental errors, and we could have sustained the blocks we had better”


In the second half, Covington Catholic scored 4 more touchdowns and won the game 36-0. The Bluebirds ended with a record of 10-3.


Coach Brian Weinrich shared his thoughts on the game.

“I’m obviously disappointed in the outcome, but I felt we played hard and represented the school well”


Senior Ben Sisson felt as though the players kept fighting till the end of the game.

“We gave a great effort and proved a lot of people wrong and came together as a team all season and constituently improved the doubters wrong even though it didn’t end up as we wouldn’t have liked.”  


Quarterback Grady Cramer, senior, felt emotional about his last game playing on the HHS football team.

“It was sad and I’m upset that we lost but I know we had a great season. Knowing it was my last game, I put myself out there, I put everything loose and tried my best.”
