    The Scott County Middle School held their Archery Madness Saturday in Georgetown but it was Harrison County archers that drove them mad.

  • A new idea for Region 10

    The 10th Region Tournament has been disappointing to me largely because of the outcomes. Mason County and Harrison County did a fine job of running the tournaments so my disappointment lies with the results not the management.
    After Monday’s semi-finals in Mason County, the two teams left standing were Campbell County and Scott.  So, for the girls’ tournament, the 10th Region is being represented by an all-star team and in the boys’ tournament the representative will be from the 9th Region formerly.

    After finishing last year as 10th Region runners-up, and returning two quality veteran pitchers this season, Harrison County’s Fillies are highly regarded.  
    So highly regarded that the 10th Region coaches pre-season poll has the Fillies as favorites just ahead of Bourbon County.  
    Coach Christine Garnett, in her tenth year as head coach of the Fillies, is also optimistic, but cautiously so.  

  • Breds cold shooting leads to early ousting in 10th Region play

    The Harrison County Thorobreds turned the ball over only five times, had more steals, more assists and only lost the rebound battle by three rebounds last Wednesday night in the second game of the 10th Region Tournament against Bracken County. Yet, the Breds came up on the short end of the 52-40 score to finish the season at 6-26 while Bracken County improved to 17-14.  
    The reason is simple when one looks at the field-goal and the free-throw shooting results.
