Fillies defeat Sayre
in final preseason scrimmate
Chelsea Ingram scored 19 points and the Harrison County Fillies defeated Sayre in a scrimmage Friday at Scott County.  
The scrimmage was low scoring, which can be attributed to the policy of not shooting free throws in each 20-minute period until the double bonus was reached.  
The Fillies were short handed as starting forward Taylor Reffett’s action was limited due to illness.  Jordan Doram led the Fillies in rebounding over the Sayre squad with nine boards.

  Six-foot, 3-inch junior, Gabby Bowie, daughter of former Kentucky Wildcat, Sam Bowie, led the Sayre squad along with three senior guards.  
Coach Kim Furnish was happy with her team’s aggressive defensive play as well as the ball movement and offensive spacing.  
“We need to work on our free throws,” she responded when asked about the number of fouls called.  She was also pleased with the Fillies committing only five turnovers for the game.
Meghan Clem’s eight points led the Harrison County junior varsity to a 14-13 win in the 20 minutes that they played facing the junior varsity Sayre girls.

Golf team gives awards Thursday

Coach Jason Crisp and the Harrison County Golf Team held the annual awards ceremony at the Cynthiana Christian Church Thursday night.
All players received varsity participation certificates for the golf season. Crisp spoke about the hard work of the team and the potential that was there.  
“If we work hard over the summer, we could have one of the better teams that we have had here at Harrison County,” noted Crisp. “We have a young team with the ability to get a lot better.”
Crisp was particularly proud of the Academic All State Awards that were earned by the golfers. Five golfers earned First Team All State while one was Honorable Mention All State.  
Kenzie Jones and Anna Midden were the Fillies golfers who earned first team all state while Sarah Durbin was honorable mention.  
The Thorobreds had three first team all state members, Sam Levi, Ryan Tobin and Anthony Vascotto.  An athlete must have a GPA of 3.75 or higher to be named first team all state. Honorable mention can only be reached with a GPA of 3.25 or higher.
