  • 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.  

  • The joy of being an athlete’s parents

    This came to me partially during the trip back from Mason County Friday night.  
    I am writing on Monday morning when there is no school in Harrison County due to icy roads.  
    After trying to walk to the street, I totally agree on school being called today.
    I do question playing in Mason County Friday night. The weather people were calling for snow and increasingly more snow as the afternoon wore on and the weather pattern became clearer.

    After defeating Robert D. Campbell Thursday, 43-31, the eighth grade Harrison County Colts lost a rough-and-tumble match at McNabb Monday night, 55-50.  
    This places the Colts as the No. 2 seed with a Tuesday match up on the Hilltop with Georgetown Middle.  
    After winning this game, the Colts will travel to Scott County Middle on Thursday to play the top team in the conference. The championship is the following evening at a site to be determined.

  • Wrestlers preparing for region as they battle in Richmond and Frankfort

    Harrison County Coach Luke Tucker is focusing on having his team healthy and ready for the region.  
    “We took a limited number of competitors to both Madison Central and Franklin County so some of the athletes could get rested and in top shape for the region,” Tucker said following the Capital City Classic. “Some of them are nursing nagging injuries and rest is the best thing we can do for them.”
    The Thorobreds dropped a 48-31 decision Wednesday at Madison Central with five weight classes being forfeited by Harrison County.
