Central Kentucky Conference Tournament Friday at Cynthiana Country Club
The golf season for Harrison County High School begins this Friday as the Fillies host the Central Kentucky Conference Tournament at the Cynthiana Country Club.  
Nine teams will begin play at 8 a.m. and play the nine-hole course twice in a tough match for the season’s kick off.  
Teams expected are Bourbon County, George Rogers Clark, Bishop Brossart, Montgomery County, Mason County, Nicholas Country, Pendleton County, Grant County and the host Fillies.  
Coach Jason Crisp’s young team will be facing some outstanding talent as they start the year but they expect to compete on their home course.
The Harrison County girls will travel on Monday to Winchester to play in the Clark County tournament so they are off to a busy first week.
The Thorobreds will begin their season on Monday when they travel to the Marriott Course in Frankfort to play in the Franklin County Tournament.  
This tournament has a 24-team field which will include schools from all over central Kentucky and Louisville.  
This a very difficult start for the Thorobreds who are young but very talented with high hopes for a good season. This tournament also goes into Tuesday and the boys will then go to Mason County on Wednesday for another tournament at the Maysville Country Club.  
Like the Fillies the Thorobreds have a full slate in the first week of play.
