  • Softball Fillies sponsoring Potty Mania

    The most unusual fund raiser is being held by the Harrison County Softball Fillies to raise money for the upcoming softball season.  
    Potty Mania is being run by senior Fillies Tracey Hicks and Emalee Little along with other Fillies and is a fun way to raise money.  
    It works like this: A commode is placed in a yard and remains there until the home owner pays $10 to have it removed, pays $15 to have it removed and to designate the next victim  or pays $20 to have it removed, designate where it goes and it is guaranteed not to return.

  • Thorobreds mercy rule Paris, play Model to a 1-1 tie

    The Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team improved to 3-7-2 with a win over Paris on Thursday and a tie with Model Tuesday night.  
    The Paris match was one that started slow, which concerned Coach Nick Hill.  
    “We are never sure which team is going to show up and the slow start worried me a little,” he said. “But we turned it on pretty quickly and made short work of the Paris team.”  
    Lance McIlvain, Josh Young and Grant Carr each scored in the first half as the Breds took a 3-0 lead into the intermission.  

  • Cross country runners post season’s best times at Mason

    Mason County’s course has always proven to be a fast course for Harrison County runners and Saturday was no exception.  
    Of course, the cooler temperature didn’t hurt any either as the varsity and middle school runners ran their better times of the year.  
    Freshman Brooke Frederick ran the 10th fastest time ever for a Fillies cross country runner as she toured the 5000M in 24:38.
    This was good enough for a 40th place finish in the 96-runner field.  

  • Breds fall to Colonels 35-28 as offense sputters in 4th quarter

    Harrison County had a fumble and an interception in its last two possessions while Bourbon County scored to defeat the Thorobreds, 35-28, Friday night in Paris.  
    This was a record-setting night for Harrison County’s Nick Slucher as he broke the school record for all-purpose yards in a game and the career mark for kick-off return yardage. But all in vain.  
    Slucher had 362 all-purpose yards, which topped his own mark of 330 that was set last year against the same Colonels.
