  • Some ideas for State Softball Tournament

    As most of you know, the Harrison County Fillies traveled to Owensboro Thursday to compete in the KHSAA State High School Softball Tournament. Sixteen regions were represented with many fans from each school there to back their local school.  
    Harrison County had a very good contingent of people in attendance to support our Fillies. The Fillies did a very good job representing themselves, the school and the community.
