  • Golfers working hard

    The Harrison County High School golf teams are busy working on their game and playing against some tough region competition.
    On Wednesday the Fillies traveled to the Pendleton County Country Club to face the Lady Wildcat golfers.  
    Sarah Holland again led the Fillies as the seventh grader shot a 55. Morgan Grose was the next top scorer as she and fellow freshman, Sarah Durbin, shot a 59 and a 61 while sophomore Morgan Nelly finished the scoring with a 69.  
    The Lady Wildcats bested the Fillies 187 to 242 in this nine-hole battle.

  • Volleyball Fillies roll over Eagles in straight sets, fall at Clark

    The Harrison County Volleyball Fillies won an easy home victory over Madison Southern’s Eagles, 25-6 and 25-10, on Thursday evening.  
    “We played well,” briefly stated Coach Bill Faulkner.  “The girls are continuing to improve on their passing and setting the ball for some kills.”  
    Junior Jordan Doram had nine kills to lead the Fillies with fellow juniors Samantha Adkins and Ellie McLaren chipping in with four kills each.  
    Senior setter Alyssa Campbell had a nice game with 18 assists.

  • Hometown Pharmacy Thorobred Bowl loss for the Breds

    The Jim Carr era of Harrison County football did not start the way it was planned or desired by the Harrison County High School Thorobreds.  
    The inability to stop Sheldon Clark on third and fourth down led to a 28-13 defeat for the Breds in the second Hometown Pharmacy Thorobred Bowl.  
    The Thorobreds took the opening kick off and marched down the field from their own 40 to the Sheldon Clark 31 before turning the ball over on downs.  

  • How can we help?

    In his first post game interview as a high school coach, Jim Carr made mention that our opposition was bigger and stronger than we were and if you attended the game, he didn’t need to tell you that.  
    It was evident by looking at the teams and seeing the dominance of Sheldon Clark’s line early in the game.  
    Harrison County was better conditioned and played more evenly in the second half, but the difference was critical when one considers the outcome of the game.
