  • Last second basket gives Henry Clay 57-56 win over Breds Tuesday

    The large Harrison County crowd that attended the game Tuesday night at Henry Clay came away with the same thought.  
    The Thorobreds snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.  
    Harrison County, after trailing very early, led from the latter part of the first quarter until 2:55 was left in the game.  
    At that point, the Blue Devils took the lead 53-52.  Brock Jenkins then hit a three pointer to make the score 55-53 with just over two minutes to play.  

  • Fillies push Lady Camels, fall 42-38 Monday night

    The Harrison County Fillies trailed by as many as 10 points in the second half Monday night.  
    They rallied to cut the lead to one on two occasions but could not gain the lead in a 42-38 loss to Campbell County.  
    Free throws again played a large part in the Fillies loss as they made only four of 11 tries for the game.  
    Senior Whitney Gray, who led all scorers with 12 points, made all four of her free tosses and the rest of the Fillies were zero for seven.  

  • Two school records set in indoor meet at Mason County

    Senior Kassidy Cook set two Harrison County High School track records Saturday participating in an indoor meet at Mason County.  
    Cook won three events and finished second in one to lead the Fillies to a fifth place finish.  
    Harrison County took only a small group of athletes so team finishes are a bit misleading.
