The Harrison County Fillies golf team had one match last week defeating Bourbon County on Wednesday at Houston Oaks Golf Course in Paris.  
The Fillies continued their improved play as they were 11 strokes better than the Lady Colonels 230-241.  
Sarah Holland again led the Harrison County girls as she shot a 46 for the nine-hole match. Morgan Nelly was next with 58 followed by Kenzie Jones who had a 62 and Sarah Durbin who shot 64.  
Tori Aubrey and Anna Midden also played for the Fillies but their scores did not count into the team score.  
The Thorobreds began this week’s play also at Houston Oaks with a match on Tuesday with the Bourbon County Colonels.   
The Breds fell eight shots short of a victory as the Colonels outscored them 167-174.  
Myles Davis led the Breds with a 41 followed by Jake Jones and Stephen Lemons with 44s and Reese Asher with a 45.
On Saturday the Breds traveled to Montgomery County for the Montgomery County Invitational.  
This was a high-powered 23-team tournament featuring the better teams of central and north central Kentucky.  
Scott County led by Billy Sergeant’s six-under 66 won the tournament with a team total of 303 edging North Laurel who had a team total of 306.  
The Thorobreds were a respectable 16th in the tourney shooting a team total of 340.  Davis again was the leader for the Thorobreds with an 18-hole score of 82. Jake Jones and Reese Asher each shot 84 and Will Hicks had a 90 to wrap up the team tally.
Monday the team traveled back to Mt. Sterling to the Mt. Sterling Country Club for the Bluegrass East Conference Tournament.  
They finished fifth of six teams but only a few strokes from the winners George Rogers Clark.  
Freshman Reese Asher was named as an All Conference player as his 39 for nine holes led the Thorobreds. Davis was next with 44 followed by Sam Levi and Will Hicks with 45.
