Fillies Athletic Club formed

Harrison County Fillies Basketball Coach Kim Furnish and assistant Jenna Landacre have formed the Fillies Athletic Club to help support Fillies athletics. The group has nearly 100 members and is adding members at a daily rate.
The first event for the club was the Fillies versus Bourbon County soccer match which was held on Sept. 9.  
“We had about 30 members in attendance that night to cheer on the Fillies soccer team,” said Furnish. “Coach Landacre and I hope that this number will grow with each event.”  
The Fillies Athletic Club is also reaching out to former Fillies who would like to become part of the organization. Furnish feels that the former Fillies would be valuable as speakers to the group and mentors to the younger, current Fillies.  
There are plans to host a Fillies Field Day to compete with one another, have tailgating before one of the Breds events and other activities to build school spirit especially among the young ladies of the school.  
The organization will also name a Fillies Player of the Month beginning in October who will be selected by the members. The focus is to be able to give the support that the Fillies deserve in each sport.
Oct. 10 also brings a new event to the area as the Fillies are hosting a Fillies Test Drive at Kentucky Bank on south U.S. 27. Chrysler on Nicholasville is bringing the latest Chrysler, Dodge and Ram cars and trucks for the public to see and test drive.  
The event, which lasts from 1 to 6 p.m. on Saturday is co-sponsored by the dealership and Kentucky Bank. The Fillies basketball program will receive a donation for each test drive.
