Harlan Elementary School would like to welcome our newest 3rd-grade Teacher!
Welcome, Ms. Ashley Overbay! 🍎
“Hello, Dragons! My name is Ashley Overbay, but you can call me Ms. Ashley! I started preschool at Sunshine School and was a part of the Green Dragon Family until I graduated from Harlan High School in 2018! From there, I obtained my Elementary Education degree from Lindsey Wilson College, completing the program this December. I am eager to return to my alma mater and give my students the same great Green Dragon experience that I had while I was at Harlan Elementary! It is such an honor to be able to help carry on a tradition of academic excellence in the years to come. I cannot wait to begin my teaching career and help my students grow!”

The Harlan Green Dragons breeze past Bell County with a 90-59 win to improve to 17-2 on the season.
Jaedyn Gist and Kyler McClendon both chipped in 26 a piece to lead the Dragons. Harlan jumped out to a 12-0 lead in the first quarter behind a lively crowd of fans eager to see the Green Dragons at home for the first time since November 29th, 2022.
Harlan extended the lead to 35 points to start a running clock midway through the 3rd quarter. The youthful Bobcats were simply out manned by the experienced Green Dragons. Eight Bobcats reached the scoring column led by Senior Dawson Woolum with 13 points.
Senior Will Austin pitched in 19 points, including one thunderous dunk early in the 3rd quarter. Both Austin and Gist were particularly aggressive on the boards against the undersized Bobcats.
The Bobcats fall to 5-11 on the season and the Dragons improve to 17-2.

The Harlan Green Dragons will be making a familiar trip up Interstate 75 to compete for the Class A State Title after knocking off Jackson County, 78-46, in regional action Tuesday night. The Green Dragons cruised passed the Generals in the Championship game of the 13th Region All-A Classic Tournament at Barbourville.
Improving to 15-2 on the season, the #1 ranked team in the 13th Region will be making their fourth consecutive trip to Eastern Kentucky University in hopes of bringing home the school’s third Class A State title. The win is Harlan’s 13th Regional Class A Championship. The Green Dragons are off to arguably the best start in the last three decades as Head Coach Derrick Akal has his squad executing at a high level.
Akal is no stranger to the State Tournament atmosphere, having had great success guiding both the Lady Dragons and the Green Dragons to a combined 10 Regional Class A Championship appearance. Under his leadership, the Lady Dragons won six regional titles culminating in a runner-up trophy in 2017 (Akal served as both Boys’ and Girls’ coach in 2017). During the 2022 campaign, Akal guided the Green Dragons to a semi-final finish where the Dragons lost in overtime to Breathitt County.
Junior Kyler McClendon continued his dominating run averaging nearly 25 points per game throughout the tournament on his way to MVP honors. Eighth grader Trenton Cole heated up in the final game and knocked down five 3-pointers on his way to a 17 point performance and earned the Most Outstanding Player of the Game award. Will Austin, Kaleb McLendon, Jaedyn Gist, and Trenton Cole joined Kyler Mclendon on the All Tournament Team.
Harlan will take on the winner of Region 15 on Thursday, January 26th at 10:00 AM at Alumni Coliseum on the campus of Eastern Kentucky University. In order to allow the “Family of Dragons” to support the Dragons there will be no school at Harlan Independent on Thursday, January 26th , 2023. If the Dragons advance on Thursday there will also be no school on Friday, January 27th. Should the Dragon fall on Thursday, classes will resume on Friday.
Tickets of the game may be purchases in advance using following link: https://gofan.co/app/events/841935?schoolId=KY87384. PrePspin has exclusive broadcast/streaming rights for the All A Classic Tournament. Radio coverage will be available on both WTUK 105.1 and WHLN 1410.
