Fillies Fall Fling this Saturday on the
Hilltop, strongest field ever expected

Coach Bill Faulkner and the Harrison County volleyball Fillies will welcome 12 of the better teams that have ever participated in the Fillies Fall Fling to the Hilltop gym Saturday.  There will be three flights with pool play beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday.  
The Fillies will open play at 9 a.m. in their pool with Williamstown (9-14). Other teams in the pool with the Fillies are Pikeville (19-7), Anderson County (16-11) and Fleming County (7-14).
The other pools are full of quality teams if not powerful ones. One of the pools has Marion County (22-4) of the Fifth Region, Ludlow (16-7) of the 9th Region and the 10th Region’s Montgomery County (17-6) and Bracken County (11-13). The third pool features the highest rated team in the 38th District, Pendleton County (14-5) along with Powell County (15-2), Madison Southern (10-10) and Villa Madonna (11-5).  
Pool play will continue through the 2 p.m. matches when the top pool finishers will square off for the championship rounds of the Fillies Fall Fling.
The Fillies sport regular season victories over Montgomery County, Fleming County, Madison Southern and Bracken County while they have lost to Powell County, Pendleton County and Villa Madonna.

Fillies golfers wrap up season with regional at Canewood
The Harrison County Fillies golf team wrapped up the season with the Central Kentucky Conference meet on Saturday at Kincaid Lake and then Monday’s regional tournament on the Canewood Course in Georgetown.  
Sarah Holland led the Fillies in both contests shooting an even 100 on Saturday as the Fillies finished eighth in the conference event. Sarah Durbin was second for the Fillies with a 114 followed by Kristen Aubrey, the squad’s lone senior, with 121, and sophomore Morgan Nelly’s 136. Grant County won the tournament followed by Mason County and George Rogers Clark.
The eighth grader Holland again led the Fillies on Monday evening as she toured the Canewood 18 holes with a 109.  Freshman Sarah Durbin was again second for the Harrison County girls as she shot a 126. Aubrey and Nelly finished the scoring as the Fillies were 10th in this meet, which was won by Scott County with Mason County finishing as runners up.  
Coach Jason Crisp noted the team’s youth saying, “While we struggled this year, we only had one upper classman on the squad. If the girls will continue to work on their game we have some good young players who could be successful before they leave Harrison County High School.”

Soccer Fillies continue improvement,
win over St. Pat, Frankfort

Senior Randi Schweitzer scored four goals and Amelia Bolin, Haley Carr, Hannah Thomas and fellow senior Johnna Marshall each added one as the Fillies routed visiting St. Patrick 8-0 Wednesday at the Athletic Complex.  
Marshall and Thomas also recorded assists in the game totally dominated by the Fillies. Goal Keeper Chelsea Ingram posted her seventh shutout of the season as when the St. Patrick team (4-8) could muster a shot, she rejected them.  
“The girls are really working hard right now and are improving with each game,” noted Coach Kim Jenkins. “They are focused on the task at hand and are preparing for the end of the season and the district.”
That improvement continued Monday evening as the Fillies traveled to the state capital and rolled over and around the (7-6) Frankfort Lady Panthers.  
Bolin, Carr, Thomas and junior Madelyn Judy each scored a goal in the convincing victory for the Fillies. Thomas added another assist and Ingram again made scoring a challenge for the opposition.  
The win improves the Fillies season mark to 7-3-4 with a home game Wednesday with powerful Madison Central. The Lady Indians will bring a sparkling 12-2-1 record to LeBus Field Wednesday night for the battle with the Fillies.
Monday night will be Senior Night for the Fillies as they host Western Hills (4-5-3). Seniors Marshall and Schweitzer will be celebrated during the evening’s action.  
The final home game of the season will follow on Wednesday, Oct. 3, as the district rival Pendleton County Lady Cats visit LeBus Field.  
This is Breast Cancer Awareness Night where the teams and many of the spectators will be wearing pink in recognition of the battle with this killer.
