A fixture of Washington County girls’ basketball will stepping down soon.
Linda Hourigan, the team’s long-time statistician, will be keeping the book for the Commanderettes for the last time at home on Friday.
For her, the journey has been a long one, filled with fouls, free throws and fourth quarters.
I knew Hourigan before I knew her. My wife’s father, Freddie Leathers, used to coach the Marion County girls’ basketball team. My wife was a manager for his teams.
