The Harrison County Thorobreds and Fillies golfers are easily the busiest teams at the high school starting the season.  
Before school is even in session the golfers have nine matches under their belt with a full slate the rest of this week.
The Fillies played at Clark County last Monday finishing eighth in a tournament that had some of the areas top teams.  
Scott County was the winner with a team total of 342.  Sarah Holland led the Fillies with a score of 106 on the tough Winchester Country Club course.  
Morgan Nelly was next for Harrison County with 119 followed by Sarah Durbin with 131 and Kenzie Jones with 147.  
The Fillies played on Thursday at Mason County but the results have not been posted as of yet by the Mason County coaches.  
The girls played a dual match Monday afternoon in the rain with Nicholas County.  The Fillies and the Lady Jackets played to a tie in the nine-hole contest, each with 195.  
Holland again led the way for the Fillies with a 46, Nelly shot 48, Anna Midden scored a 50, Durbin and Jones both totaled 51 and Tori Aubrey had a 53.  
The girls play again at Pendleton County Wednesday, Aug. 14, then on Saturday, Aug. 17, at Montgomery County before returning Monday to the Cynthiana Country Club to host the Lady Colonels of Bourbon County.
